There are many ways by which the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers are different from police. While police observe and ensure the security of the internal part of the country, KDF soldiers protect the country from external attacks. Due to their contrasting roles, soldiers are trained on the following things.
1 International Military Relations
KDF has an established Defence university where soldiers advance their academic training. At this university, they pursue different courses like those dealing with international relations. This is important when Kenya may engage in armed military struggle with another country, experts in relations may bring back peace without using the war option.
2 Handling Heavy Weaponry
Soldiers use some weapons not available to police. They include tanks, warfare aircrafts, bomb launchers, and heavy machine guns. Soldiers are trained to handle these while police deal with light weaponry.
