Pomp and Colour as President Uhuru Lands at Manda in Full Military Gear Ahead of Important Ceremony

President Uhuru Kenyatta on Thursday, September 23, 2021 landed in Manda Bay Military camp aboard a Kenya Air Force Plane.

Uhuru was accompanied by Major General Kibochi among other Military leaders. He was ushered in by the Defence Cabinet Secretary Monica Juma.

Uhuru will preside over the Presidential and Regimental Colour Presentation Ceremony at the Military base.

The event is a commemoration of when Kenya attained self-rule and replaced the colonial queens and Regimental Colours. The event is significant to every Unit in the Kenyan Military and its recorded in the unit’s history.

The President is entitled to issuing the colours to the units. The colours are the highest honour for any regiment or unit and are well-guarded and treasured.

Losing the colours leads to the disbandment of the regiment or unit. All infantry units and bases are presented with both presidential and regimental colours. 

Uhuru arrived in full Military gear as the Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) ready to preside over this extremely respected exercise in the military.
