MODERATOR I don't know much about whether the KDF has UAVs or what their capabilities are but that explanation feels unlikely, especially since if they do have them then I doubt they are deployed in Tana right now. Unless there has been any new information, the truth behind this may be difficult to discover. Has there been any news?

MODERATOR Precisely, i talked to the concerned and they easily suspected it was UAV because of the high tensions and reports circulating of anticipated attacks and of groups of armed people seen around Ngao and Kipao one of them was keen to let me know if that is not our UAV then probably its KDF UAV but what iam not sure of is whether UAVs can be that loud and if yes i wonder why the noise took close to an hour

MODERATOR Fortunately, this is very easy to verify since we know it was not us. However, it's concerning if our intended UAV activities in the area inspire rumours. What was the nature of the reports? Were they positive or negative? Were people worried that the UAV may be an indicator of trouble?
