Kenya begins withdrawal of its troops from restive South Sudan

Kenya has withdrawn its first batch of peacekeepers serving with the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). The troops arrived in the capital, Nairobi on Wednesday afternoon.

The Kenyan government last week announced a decision to withdraw all its troops from South Sudan. Their position stemmed from the decision by the UN Secretary general to dismiss the Kenyan commander of the UNMISS.

Lieutenant General Johnson Mogoa Kimani Ondieki was fired after a U.N. inquiry accused UNMISS of failing to respond to an attack on a Juba hotel during fighting in the South Sudanese capital in July.
