Reading Time: 2 minutes

Kenya Army Commanding Officers and Commandants have begun an annual conference to review their performance, discuss their Units' operational and mission readiness, and develop approaches to the imminent threats faced as they execute the Kenya Army mandate.

The conference under the theme 'Committed to Mission Readiness through Focused Leadership' offers the Commanding Officers and Commandants a platform to exchange ideas and build team spirit as they manage the affairs of the Kenya Army.

In his keynote address, while opening the conference, Commander Kenya Army Lieutenant General (Lt Gen) Peter Njiru urged the Commanding Officers and Commandants to remain focused and committed to duty to ensure they achieve various tasks that they are assigned.

''You hold key appointments that shape the Units that you lead; therefore, you must always ensure that you lead by example to have a formidable force that you can always depend on,'' said Lt Gen Njiru.

Lt Gen Njiru added: ''Without such gatherings and applying lessons from the contemporary battlefield and operations, some mistakes may be repeated. Therefore, we must understand the indispensable importance of lessons learnt, which is meant to improve performance in our duties.''

Further, Lt Gen Njiru assured the military leaders that the Kenya Army will continue to expand and modernize its Units and Formations in line with the Strategic Defence Plan and the Strategic Defence and Strategic Review, which entails the acquisition of systems and equipment that will provide specific desired capabilities to counter current and future threats.

In his speech during the conference, Deputy Army Commander Major General (Maj Gen) William Shume thanked the Commanding Officers and Commandants for their hard work and selflessness in ensuring the Kenya Army mandate is achieved by being the pivots between the Kenya Army leadership, Officers and the Service Members.

''You hold critical positions that are core to the delivery of the Kenya Army mandate. I am glad that your efforts are bearing fruits in ensuring we deliver on our mandate,'' said Maj Gen Shume.
