Kenya Defence Forces Imam Major Omar Mohamed today conducted a spiritual guidance session for students of Moi Forces Academy Eastleigh, Nairobi.
The sessions were initiated in February last year by the then Kenya Air Force commander, now the Vice Chief of Defence Forces, Lieutenant General Francis Ogolla.
Major Omar Mohamed noted the session was aimed at impacting Islamic morals and safeguarding the youths from indiscipline cases such as extremism and radicalization citing that most indiscipline cases among the youth stem from a lack of proper guidance.
He added that plans are underway to have inter-denominational session for all the students.
Warrant Officer class two Abdullahi Ali, currently the Imam at Moi Air Base, reiterated the importance of spiritual guidance in the young populace. He pointed that as a result of the programme, there has been significant improvement in the academic performance as well as discipline.
