KDF To Evacuate 250 Kenyans From Bentui

advice sans-serif; color: #222222;”>The reports Chimpreports has received from the Kenyan National Disaster Operation Centre show that two KDF planes and one commercial plane shall brave their way to the tense Unity State’s capital of Bentui today, Tuesday, for the evacuation mission through Juba international airport.

According to the same body, KDF is also airlifting 17 tonnes of foodstuffs to the stranded Kenyans in the volatile states of Southern Sudan where fighting started a week ago.

“KDF has already airlifted 17 tonnes of the said foodstuffs to the stranded Kenyan,” an insider told Chimpreports.

The disaster operation centre maintains that saving stranded Kenyans from the remote areas of the troubled nation mainly Jonglei is still a big challenge though the government is doing all it can to save them.

On Saturday, United States and Uganda prematurely aborted an “evacuation” mission from Jonglei capital of Bor when their planes come under fire from rebels under Gen. Peter Gadet.


Three CV-22 Osprey planes of U.S and a Russian made Mi-24 of Uganda got multiple shots before landing, injuring four U.S service men and forcing all the planes to divert and make emergency landings at Entebbe international airport in Uganda.

It is not clear yet how Kenya, who is reluctant about the volatility of the State, has managed to make her way, but U.S and Uganda were accused by former vice president, Riek Machar, of siding with President Salva Kiir.
