The new chief of Defence was sworn in a few days ago by President Ruto after General Kibochi's exit. During a thanksgiving giving ceremony held today, the high profile General told the congregants about his rise to power and how he declined a letter to join university.General Ogolla disclosed that he joined the military training centre at Lanet, Nakuru in 1984. He recalls how his mother came calling asking him to go to university because the admission letter had already arrived but he was determined to serve the country as a military man.
39 years later, General Ogolla has risen through the ranks to become the Chief of Defence Forces, the highest-ranking military officer in the country. He thanked President William Ruto for the trust he had in him, adding that he didn’t expect the appointment.
During the thanksgiving service at the Saint Michael’s Cathedral at the Defence Headquarters, Nairobi, the Archbishop of the Anglican Church, Jackson Ole Sapit, congratulated General Ogolla and encouraged him to always put God first in pursuit of his dreams.
