President Kenyatta is man on a mission

Immediately after jetting back from the US,President Uhuru Kenyatta and First Lady Margaret Kenyatta unveiled a new Level 4, 150-bed capacity military hospital at Kahawa Garisson in Kiambu County as part of activities to commemorate this year's KDF.

President Kenyatta and the First Lady Margaret Kenyatta, also commissioned a Communication Information System (CIS) maintenance and innovation centre, and an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) repair workshop at the Garisson.

The Nairobi Regional Level 4 Hospital, is part of Government efforts to boost the welfare of the KDF. That has seen the establishment of other regional health facilities in Isiolo and Eldoret to offer quality health services to soldiers and their dependents.

This year's commemoration marked the 10th anniversary since Kenya started observing KDF Day in 2011, the year that Kenyan troops entered Somalia in pursuit of al-Shabaab terrorists under the Operation Linda Nchi.KDF Day is now observed annually to celebrate acts of valor and gallantry by Kenyan soldiers as well as honour those that died defending their motherland.
