The Chief of Defense Forces is the highest position that one can attain in the Kenya Defense Forces and is usually occupied by the highest ranking officer who is usually a general.

The position of Chief of Defense Forces in Kenya is usually rotated between the Kenya Navy, Kenya Army and the Kenya Air Force.

Currently, General Robert Kibochi from the Kenya Army is the Chief of the Defense Forces taking over from General (Retired) Samson Mwathethe of the Kenya Navy.


General (RTD) Samson Mwathethe retired from the Kenya Defense Forces a few years ago and handed over the stewardship of the forces to Gen Robert Kibochi.

General Mwathethe served as the Chief of Defense Forces during President Uhuru's term from his appointment in 5th May 2015 to the 10th of May 2020.
