Kenya toughens sea warfare team with more marine commandos

Members of the Marine Commandos during a training by the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) as part of reinforcement for the Kenya Navy Special Forces.

What you need to know:

  • The commandos undertook a first-of-its-kind course which covered operational aspects including amphibious operations, land warfare, close quarter combat as well as combat search and rescue.
  • They will help create a serene environment in the blue economy, which is part of the national government’s big four agenda.
  • The Navy and the Kenya Coast Guard Service (KCGS) have increased patrols in the Indian Ocean to tame crimes including illegal fishing, drug trafficking and sea pollution.

The Kenya Navy Special Operations Squadron has received a major boost to its sea and land warfare operations after more marine commandos joined the team last week.
