The Kenya Defense Forces has several barracks that are spread out across the country where they reside and train.

Kahawa Garrison is found along the busy Thika Superhighway where you will not fail to notice it if you ever drive through there.
However, what you might not know is that the barracks cannot be located on Google Maps.
Here's some reasons why:
One of the main reasons as to why you cannot find the army barracks on Google Street View is the fact that this would pose as a security threat.
Many enemies that are foreign don't know where exactly the barracks are located and this is why they should always be kept secret from our enemies.
You are not even allowed to photograph any army barracks and this would lead to an arrest if you are spotted.

Vulnerability to Attacks
As stated earlier, it's not wise to expose the barracks to foreign and domestic enemies who want to test our defenses.
By placing the maps on Google Street View, this would give the enemies the precise location where they can attack with ease even from outside the country.
It's therefore imperative to avoid exposing oneself to attacks from foreign and domestic enemies.

There is sensitive information that is contained in the barracks that should never be leaked to the public.
Ammunition as well as the armored cars that are possessed by the army are things that are very sensitive and should not be let seen by the enemy.
It is in this light that photography of these places is prohibited and there is only a blank space on Google maps where barracks should be.
