      Default Kenya naval ships shell and bomb Kismayo

      Kenyan warships have shelled the
      Somali port of Kismayo. Kenya says
      it shelled the al-Shabab-controlled
      port city of Kismayo after Kenyan
      ships came under fire.
      Kenyan military spokesman, Cyrus
      Oguna, said ”they fired at us and
      we fired back.” Oguna says Kenya
      Defense Force ships routinely
      patrol the area, but this is the first
      time that they have engaged in
      combat in Kismayo. He said he
      could not confirm casualties at this
      time.
      Militants blamed Kenyan forces for
      the attack. A Kismayo resident who
      prefers to give just his first name,
      Mohamed, said that the first
      shelling started just after three in
      the morning.
      The warships at the coast of
      Kismayo started shelling the port,
      Mohamed says the warships
      started the shelling and al-Shabab
      returned fire. He said the shelling
      stopped for a few hours before
      resuming midmorning.
      The second shelling, which started
      just before 6:00 am local time, hit
      a house near the port, injuring an
      eight-year old boy.
      The sister of the injured boy told
      said that the shell landed outside
      their home as the family was
      getting ready to start their day.

      They may capture Kismayo but what about Nairobi, is it safe enough?

      The warships were there on
      purpose, one, either to take
      enemy fire and determine what
      type of anti-ships weaponry the
      Al-Shabaab had and can use, and
      two, how the Al-Shabaab could
      respond to a naval onslaught

      That has been done severally in the past -there are no surprises to learn on both these queries now. This latestKismayo Naval activity was cover for a larger-than-usual SOC covert insertion at 03H00, and a subsequent extraction late same morning with some high-value Local Assets. Hummint, Mapping and Recon. Nothing to do with a tit-for-tat maneno AS is bragging about.

      Random cool picture: US and Kenya Navy training off Mombasa coast in the Indian Ocean | Breaking News Kenya

      Kenyahas said it will spend billions to be the naval power in Indian ocean region alongside India
      Parliamentary Budget Committee has recommended Sh3.6 billion payment for a contract entered in 2003 for construction of a Kenya Navy ship.
      Taxpayers will have forked out more than Sh5 billion for the vessel built in Spain if the payment is made in July as recommended in a report tabled in the House on Wednesday.

      This is Sh1 billion higher than the Sh3.9 billion initial cost of the ship expected to be delivered on July 2 if full payment is made to Spanish manufacturer, Euromarine.
      In 2007, Parliament heard Sh1.55 billion had already been paid to the Spanish contractors before the process was stopped over grand corruption.
      The report tabled on Wednesday by committee chairman Adan Keynan says the Defence Ministry and Euromarine have agreed on the payment terms and the delivery schedule of the naval vessel.
      approve payment
      In total, the Government is required to pay 34 million Euros (Sh3.6 billion) so that the ship christened MV Jasiri can be delivered by July 2.
      It adds the Treasury provided Sh1 billion in the supplementary budget as part payment.
      The balance is Sh2.9 billion, according to the report, although calculations indicate the difference has been prioritised in the budget for the 2012/13 financial year.
      On May 2, 2007 then chairman of the Defence and Foreign Relations Committee GG Kariuki implored Parliament to approve the payments after leading a fact-finding mission to Spain.
      The then Laikipia West MP explained the money, which was involved in building the ship was Sh3.9 billion of which Sh1.55 billion had been paid.
      By June 2006, he added, Sh1.833 billion had not been paid, which included interest, penalties and installments.
      He said the ship was 98 per cent ready and only remained to be fitted with armaments. And subject to full payments officers would be trained on how to operate the vessel.
      The House heard the MV Jasiri weighs 140 tonnes, was 85 metres long and 13 metres wide. It was billed as the only one of its kind in East and Central Africa.

      Sorry, mate, but that is not the KNS-Uhuru. More likely a USN ship in Kenya for the usual APS program.

      ..Kenyans were just retaliating.

      ..kama hawa kweli wamedhamiria waingie huko watembeze kichapo.

      ..Al-Shabab hawaelewi lugha nyingine zaidi ya ukatili na unyama.

      ..U have to instill fear on Al-Shabaab, in order to bring them to submission.

      ..the question is: Je askari wa Kenya wanaweza kuwa wakatili zaidi ya Al-Shabaab??
