The other one is the jungle uniform, which he uses when he is in the field for operations. In the hierarchy, we have the Kenyan Army, followed by the Kenyan Airforce and the Kenya Navy. So the tradition has been that he must put on the colours of the major wing of the army and that is the Kenya Army," he clarified.
