In some quarters, they are known as the red-beret police because of the red beret that serves as their main identity point.
Often, you will see them walking in the military barracks. Yes, these are special assignment military men.
But unlike the rest of the Kenya Defence Forces soldiers drawn from all the three units: Kenya Army, Kenya Navy and Kenya Air Force, military police have been properly trained in matters law.
In other words, they are there to police other KDF soldiers and to ensure that they operate within the confines of the law.
Have you ever wondered who will arrest a KDF soldier in case they break the law? Ordinarily, ordinary police officers have no such powers. This means, military police have these special powers to do the arrests when called upon.
In other words, they are the law and order enforcement agents of the Kenya Defence Forces.
For KDF men who are always feared by the population, military police can apprehend them without the fear of facing the consequences!
