Military of KenyaKenya Defence Forces — Under article 241 of the new Constitution of Kenya (see text) adopted last year, Kenya's military has been named the Kenya Defence Forces. Compare with British Armed Forces, Israel Defense Forces, Australian Defence Force etc. Note that "defence" is used (not "defense") as Kenya traditionally bases its spellings on British English. --The Celestial City (talk) 00:07, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Support- Seems reasonable. Oldag07 (talk) 01:27, 12 February 2011 (UTC)
  • I'm going to go ahead and move - should not be controversial. Neutralitytalk 21:26, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Notes at T-72 ?[edit]

Why is there a note on the T-72 section, which is reserved for special information about modified weapons I guess? "125mm gun" is the note, and the 125mm gun is the standard gun of the T-72? More modern western tanks use the Rheinmetall 120mm gun, but this gun is superior to the T-72 gun because of many factors and thats why the USA use the Rheinmetall 120mm gun, built under license in the USA, in their MBT, the M1 Abrams. Is it a special gun that Kenya use? I'm looking right now for information about the forces of Kenya and I thought I would find more about one of the larger african states.

Linda Nchi[edit]

The joint Operation Linda Nchi was launched after an official weekend meeting in Dhobley between Kenyan and Somali military officials [1]. The incursion itself, though, was planned as far back as 2010, years before any abductions [2]. Also, Kenya had no role in the Jubaland region of Somalia's formation, nor in the establishment of any other region in Somalia. Only Somali political stakeholders did; those were the parties that actually signed the Addis Ababa formation agreement [3]. Middayexpress (talk) 16:39, 2 May 2015 (UTC)

For clarity, and avoiding issues spread between multiple talk pages, all interested in this discussion should probably consider actively engaging at Talk:Somali Civil War. Buckshot06 (talk) 21:52, 4 May 2015 (UTC)

"Led"[edit]

In response to this edit the article cited doesn't say that Kenya "led" the drive. [4] AcidSnow (talk) 16:55, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Indeed, it doesn't AcidSnow; even if it had, that would be false. The operation was at first jointly led per the weekend meeting just prior to the incursion [5], as well as the 18 October joint communique in Mogadishu just after it [6]. It was then officially led by the Somali government per the 31 October joint communique signed in Nairobi [7]. Middayexpress (talk) 19:51, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
Understood. I also fixed my link. AcidSnow (talk) 20:10, 11 May 2015 (UTC)

Budget[edit]

Clarification of millitary budget. The article says Defense spending is 843 million $ and is given as 5.3% of GDP. But 5.3% of the kenyan 65 billion $ economy is much more than that
