Commander Kenya Army Lieutenant General (Lt Gen) Walter Koipaton visited Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) troops deployed in close operations and those serving under the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM). This was under his routine visits that the commander makes to monitor and motivate troops in the field.

As the troops continue to defend the territorial integrity of the Republic of Kenya, such visits accord the commander an opportunity to interact and share experiences with the soldiers at their areas of operation.

The Commander was accompanied by several senior officers including Chief of Operations and Training Brigadier William Shume, Artillery Commander Brigadier David Tarus and Engineers Brigade Commander Brigadier Stephen Radina among others.
