Kenya's Acting Deputy Army Commander, Major General Peter Muteti, on October 17, 2022, saw off the advance party of Kenya Defence Forces Signals Company (KENSIG) set to deploy to the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of the United Nations Organisation Stabilisation Mission (MONUSCO).
Speaking during the event, Major General Muteti urged the troops to execute their mandate professionally to ensure MONUSCO achieves its mandate.
''Be wary of any possible threats while you will be carrying out your duties in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Being the first KENSIG troops, endeavour to uphold the exemplary performance registered by your predecessors who have already been deployed to DRC," he said.
The Company's key objective is to provide and support communication connectivity and information technology services to the Mission and the Force.
Further, the troops are expected to continue implementing the MONUSCO mandate of protecting civilians, supporting stabilization and neutralizing armed militia, and working with other deployed militaries in the Eastern DRC.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
