NEWS: British Army reaches deal with Kenya over training ground

The British and Kenyan governments have reached an agreement to allow the continued training of British troops in the African country. While the agreement has yet to be ratified by both governments this is considered merely a formality.

In recent years, Kenya has provided the British Army with it’s largest live firing range outside of the UK and has become integral in the training of troops before deployment to potential combat zones. On average 10,000 British troops pass through Kenya every year.

British ambassador to kenya, Nic Hailey said to the press;

The UK is Kenya’s longest-standing defence and security partner, and both our countries want to see the relationship continue and grow.
