Oguna was the face of the country’s operation Linda Nchi when KDF went into Somalia to eliminate Al Shabaab’s threat to Kenya in 2010.
Colonel Oguna came into the limelight when the Kenya Defence Forces entered Somalia last year to battle Al-Shabaab militants and became KDF’s public face. The eloquent speaker conveyed with enthusiasm progress made by the forces in Operation Linda Nchi.
