Why Former NMS Boss Gen. Badi Will Be the Next CDF After General Francis Ogolla Retires

Who will succeed Robert Kibochi as the head of the chief defense force (CDF) is increasingly becoming more apparent.

After serving out his entire tenure, CDF Kibochi is anticipated to resign from his position. Although Gen. Kibochi has reached the legal retirement age of 62, his resignation from service was postponed due to the difficult political transition that followed the 2022 General Election.

According to Kenya Defense Forces regulations, the new military commander is expected to be either Lt Gen Francis Ogolla or Lt Gen Mohammed Badi, the former Nairobi Metropolitan Service (NMS) boss.

General Badi may now take over as CDF because General Ogolla is apparently out of the running, according to reports.

Gen. Francis Ogolla has reached retirement age, which means he is no longer a factor in discussions on who should be the next CDF, according to an article in The Standard today.

Given that military positions cannot be bypassed, General Badi is the obvious choice to succeed General Ogolla as CDF if he retires this year.
