Military Delegates of The Arab Republic of Egypt, earlier this week made a courtesy visit to Chief of the Defence Forces, General Francis Ogolla, at the Defence Headquarters (DHQ) before embarking on a three-day benchmarking tour.

At DHQ, the delegates led by Staff Major General Ramadan Ali were taken through a presentation on Kenya’s perspective of National Security and its response towards threats by Colonel Collins Mitoko, in which the highlight was the critical importance of a comprehensive national security strategy that addresses both traditional and emerging security threats.

In his presentation, Col Mitoko underscored Kenya’s investment in border security measures, intelligence gathering, and counterterrorism operations to disrupt extremist networks and prevent attacks on its soil. Additionally, the country has strengthened its relationships with regional and international partners, such as Egypt, to enhance information sharing, capacity building, and joint training exercises to address common security challenges.

The Delegates also had the opportunity to visit the prestigious International Peace Support Training Centre (IPSTC) and the esteemed National Defence College Kenya (NDC-K) where they were received by Director IPSTC, Brigadier Joyce Sitienei, and NDC-Kenya Commandant Major General Rashid Elmi respectively.
This visit provided them with an invaluable overview and insight into the important work and functions of these institutions in promoting Peace, Security, and Defence. They also had an opportunity to visit Uhuru Gardens National Monument and Museum (UGNMM) in Langa’ta, Nairobi County.
