Her name is Faith Hariri Mwagandi.She was born and raised in Magarini subcounty, Kilifi county. She has gone in the book of records for being the first female warship commander in Kenya. Her dream was never to join military as she worked hard at Moi Girls' highschool, Eldoret where she got an A wishing to go and pursue medicine in the university but unfortunately, JAB placed her to go study bachelor of arts at Kenyatta University.After three weeks from the time she was admitted in campus, Hariri saw an opportunity in a newspaper for application of cadets and that is where she took a step and applied.
Fortunately, she was placed in 2007 and went for training at Kenya Military Academy in Lanet. She holds a diploma in military science and she has also learnt in Egerton university. She had a scholarship to Britannia royal naval college in United Kingdom for training and when she came back she was appointed as an instructor at Kenya Navy Training School. She has worked in Manda and Mtongwe navy bases in Mombasa and also a navigating officer in Kenya's first research vessel. Currently the strong woman is the one steering Kenya Navy's warship dupped, KNS Shupavu in Somalia.The lady has shown a good example and also inspired young ladies who fear joining military to try their best. Congratulations to her. See some of her photos below;
