This Is Kenya's 2021 New Position In Africa's Super-Power Countries

The new ranking list of Military from different world countries for 2021 have been availed. In the list, some countries' militaries performed well and rose in strength as others dropped.

For Africa in particular, tremendous change have been witnessed when compared to the 2020's list.

According to GFP( Global Firepower)– a website that ranks and informs of different countries' military strength based on the available information— new names have joined the list of the top ten African super-powers.

Here is the 2021's list of African Super powers based on their military strength.

From the list, obvious names known to be among Africa's Super-Power nations in the previous years are nowhere to be seen. Kenya, for instance, did not manage to join the list of the top ten this year.

Based on the reports, Kenya has been ranked position 12 in Africa, a drop from position 7 they held in 2020. Even so, the country's military maintained their military capabilities and has been indexed 1.7241.

GFP uses over 50 factors in their criteria to determine the strength of particular country's strength; giving the small but technologically advanced nations equal chances to rank with bigger nations. And it is based on those factors that Kenya was positioned 12 in Africa and 83 worldwide.

There are hopes that the country would continue to strengthen KDF's capabilities through allocation of more funds for equipment and recruiting more individuals into the force. Kenya currently has about 28,000 active forces.

Uganda and Tanzania also dropped in the list, and in this year's reports they were positioned 89 and 112 respectively out of 139 countries considered for ranking worldwide.
