The family of a Kenya Defence Forces KDF soldier who was missing from the attack in Al Adde Somalia has been found dead.
Wyclife Oguta had been missing since the attack took place January 15 in Somalia when Al Shabaab militants attacked a KDF camp.
It was earlier reported that over 100 of 240 soldiers died but some families had not heard of the whereabouts of their loved ones.
Oguta’s family after waiting for close to a month hoping for good news has finally been left heartbroken.
” We have received the bad news. Wyclife is dead. We are heartbroken. We are dead inside,” his brother William told News24.
He described the deceased as fun loving and open minded.
” He was a loving person. He loved to live and was looking forward to a bright future,” he said if the 26 year old.
The body was discovered through thorough finger print searching.
The KDF has yet to announce how many of its men died in the attack, with reports stating that the likelihood is there will be no announcement soon on the matter.
