Somalia, for and against.

Capt. Munyiri's view is that there's no reason to intervene in Somalia: Al-Shabaab is a Somalian matter - an internal armed insurrection which is no concern of ours - which Kenya lacks the mandate to handle. Henry Gekonde thinks there are strong pragmatic reasons to intervene, that an intervention would have public support, and that the mandate is available if the action is an African Union matter.
