KDF shares rare glimpse of recruits training in boot camp

Kenya Defence Forces has given the public a glimpse of their recruits in a training camp, an unprecedented gesture by a force traditionally wrapped in layers of secrecy.

The force tweeted two pictures of the recruits – one shows a recruit aiming, while the other is that of recruits training in a field.

It is assumed that the pictures were taken at the Recruits Training School in Eldoret.


Posting the pictures is a departure from tradition of a secretive force.

Once the recruits report at the training camp their relatives only see them during pass-out.

KDF is currently involved in Somalia as part of Amisom fighting al-Shabaab militants.
