The ministry of defense in a notice to the public, urged Kenyans to send their views concerning new laws that will govern the Kenya defense Forces.
The first recommendation outlined that Pensions, gratuities and other allowances shall granted by the Defence Council with the concurrence of the National Treasury.
"The public is hereby invited to review and consider the KDF Pensions and Gratuities draft regulations and submit reviews, views and memoranda to the address provided. The draft regulations are accessible on the Ministry of Defence website," KDF posted on twitter.
The Defence Council may at any time review an award of pension made under these Regulations where it has been made in error.
No officer or service member shall have an absolute right to compensation for past services or to pension, gratuity or other allowance nor shall anything in these Regulations affect the right of the Defence Council to terminate the commission of any officer or the Commander to discharge or dismiss a service member at any time and without compensation except disability pension where applicable.
An officer or service member sentenced to dismissal by Court Martial or Commanding Officer shall not be entitled to pension, gratuity or other allowance except disability pension where applicable.
If a retired officer or a discharged service member enters the service of a foreign power without the consent of the Defence Council, or he continues in such service after the consent previously granted is withdrawn, his service pension or other allowances granted under these Regulations may be suspended or withheld for such period as the Defence Council, with the concurrence of the National Treasury, may determine.
