Meet Former Chief of Defense Forces and Lucrative Post He Now Occupies in a Parastatal

The Kenya Defense Forces have excelled in upholding its responsibility to defend the nation against external aggression by its adversaries.

The highest position attainable in the Kenya Defense Forces is Chief of Defense Forces, which is often held by the highest ranked officer, who is typically a general.

Kenya's Navy, Army, and Air Force often alternate holding the role of Chief of Defense Forces.

General (Retired) Samson Mwathethe of the Kenya Navy has been replaced as Chief of the Defense Forces by General Robert Kibochi of the Kenya Army.

A few years ago, General (RTD) Samson Mwathethe departed from the Kenya Defense Forces and gave Gen Robert Kibochi control of the organization.

General Mwathethe was appointed Chief of Defense Forces on May 5, 2015, and held the position until May 10, 2020, when President Uhuru took office.

President Uhuru Kenyatta appointed him to the KenGen board when he retired.

According to the reports we have here, General (retired) Samson Mwathethe is the current chairman of the KenGen Board.
