In aid towards the fight against extremists, the US Government has given the Kenya Defense Forces (KDF) 12 Bastion Armored Personnel Carriers (APC) to improve border surveillance.
The vehicles were presented by US Defense Attaché and Senior Defense Official Colonel Kevin Balisky to the Deputy Kenya Army Commander Major General Thomas Chepkuto at the Kahawa Barracks in Nairobi.
“These vehicles represent the unwavering US commitment to Kenya and our shared national security interests. As the KDF continues to conduct daily operations against violent extremism, these vehicles will enhance the mobility and force protection of their troops in harm’s way. We are proud to be friends and partners with the KDF as they secure and develop peace in the border region,” said Colonel Balisky.
