Commander Kenya Army Lieutenant General David Tarus has today delivered a lecture of opportunity to the Senior Joint Command and Staff Course at the Joint Command and Staff College (JCSC) in Karen, Nairobi.

In his presentation, Lt Gen Tarus congratulated the class for their resilience and determination during their stay at the college.

“All that you have learnt is meant to prepare you for higher responsibilities. As a military leader, you are required to possess some key leadership traits which include courage, decisiveness, endurance, initiative and integrity. The qualities are to a large extent gained by practice through training forums such as the one you have just had. Congratulations for successfully completing the course,” he commended.

The Commander further emphasized the importance of transformational and participative leadership in accomplishing military missions and mandate.

“The desired type of military leadership in the contemporary battlefield is that which supports, guides and inspires subordinates towards confidence building, optimal performance and loyalty. Allowing an inclusive and collaborative mindset fosters unity of direction and builds esprit de corps for the achievement of the mission,” he guided.

While making reference to his service experience that spans close to four decades, the Commander noted that no military leader can accomplish the mission in isolation.

The 39 – 23/24 class comprising of 89 officers drawn from Kenya and allied countries is set to graduate on Wednesday 05 June 2024 after undergoing a one-year training.

JCSC is a tri-service constituent college of National Defence University – Kenya (NDU-K) where tactical level commanders and staff officers from the Kenya Defence Forces and allied countries train on command and staff duties.
