Kenya does not engage in wars only when necessary, but it took kenya to get into somalia after other countries were there for years for somalia to regain control of Kismayo port and to push Al-shabaab from southern somalia. We have also been engaged in alot of peace operation including in europe where kenya was a peace keeping force in Bosnia. We have also had a peace keeping force in east timor. Kenya was not chased out of south sudan, it withdrew its troops after our commander was demoted, even in somalia we are under amisom but we don't work under other countries commanders ie. We work under the umbrella of Amisom but we have an independent command from the Amisom troops.Which war did KDF won, apart from been chased away from South Sudan after it failed to protect civilians.
Kenyatta said the United Nations acted in an undignified manner when it replaced the commander Lt-Gen Johnson Ondieki who was heading the mission in South Sudan.
He said the United Nations did not also respect Kenya’s sovereignty when it took the unilateral decision to which Kenya has responded by withdrawing its soldiers from the mission.
"Our soldiers have served in many countries and with distinction," Kenyatta told African diplomats in Nairobi on Nov. 4 and cited how Kenyan soldiers performed in Namibia, East Timor, Yugoslavia and many other missions
