Representative Officers whose mother Unit is 15 Kenya Rifles (15KR) have today paid a visit to Brigadier (Rtd) Joel Munandi at his residence in Makueni County.

Led by Ambassador Major General (Rtd) Thomas Chepkuto, the Officers relayed a message of appreciation to their second Commanding Officer who served for a period of two years between 1990 to 1992.

In his speech, Amb Maj Gen (Rtd) Chepkuto expressed gratitude to Brig Munandi for the distinguished service and leadership he rendered while at 15KR.

“You’re remembered as a great leader at the Unit. Your resourcefulness and unswerving devotion to duty gave 15KR a firm foundation upon which it stands high to date,” he noted.

On his part, Maj Gen Peter Muteti applauded Brigadier Munandi’s service and emphasized the importance of Officers’ unity beyond active service.

“You are indeed a symbol of good military leadership, the reason why 15KR seeks your interaction even after retirement. This is an important initiative as it provides an opportunity for Officers to learn from each other and exchange ideas on good leadership and also to get insights about how to transit to civilian life following exit from the Service,” he explained.

Brig (Rtd) Munandi urged the service personnel to uphold integrity and discipline while discharging their duties. He noted that it’s through these virtues that Officers can grow and realize their full potential in the military career. He further encouraged making early investments which come in handy at making life enjoyable upon retirement.

“Don’t fear to implement a business idea. With hard work and determination, you’ll succeed,” he encouraged.

Brig (Rtd) Munandi joined the military in 1967 and rose through the ranks to be appointed as the second Commanding Officer of 15 KR in 1990. He retired as the Commandant Defence Headquarters Camp Administrative Unit in 1998.
