The outgoing Chief of Infrastructure at Defence Headquarters, Major General Dennis Kamuri, has today handed over the office to his successor Brigadier Titus Sokobe.

Maj Gen Kamuri who was promoted from the rank of a Brigadier last week by President William Ruto was appointed the Managing Director at the Kenya Ordinance Factories Corporation (KOFC) based in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu to succeed Major General Solomon Manambo.

KOFC is a State Corporation domiciled in the Ministry of Defence whose mandate is to manufacture hardware, machinery, equipment, small arms, and ammunition and fabricate high precision tools among others

While presenting handover notes to his successor, Maj Gen Kamuri congratulated Brig Sokobe on his promotion and urged him to take the branch to higher levels. He thanked the various officers and service members for their support in ensuring that the branch achieved various milestones and infrastructural projects across military installations in the country.

The Infrastructure Branch is responsible for undertaking infrastructural projects for both the military and national government whenever called upon. Some of the notable projects include the construction of schools, roads, hospitals, sinking boreholes, and water pans, among others. One of his last projects is the construction of the Embu Stadium, where the 60th Madaraka Day  celebrations will be held.

Maj Gen Kamuri is the pioneer Chief of Infrastructure. During his three-years stint, the branch initiated critical projects ranging from bespoke health facilities, ultra-modern sports complex, schools, and boreholes, among other facilities.

Prior to his last week promotion and appointment by the Commander-in-Chief of the Defence Forces, Brigadier Sokobe was Colonel in charge of Projects at the branch.
