Likoni Sub County in Mombasa was on Wednesday engulfed in a sombre mood when the body of one of the Kenya defense forces killed in Somali arrived. Sergeant Juma Zahoro aged 40, had only been in Somalia for two weeks before al Shabaab struck the KDF camp in Somali and killed him among others.
According to one of his relatives, the late soldier had called a younger brother when the camp was under attack, asking him to pray and that was they last time they heard from him.
The relative is quoted saying “His younger brother heard as he took his last breath as a hero, who stood up and fought for his country,”
Several leaders led by Governor Hassan Joho and Mombasa County Women representative also attended the burial.
Here are some pictures from his last journey
