Kenyan military secrets revealed

A Kenyan blogger's reaction to a new published biography of General Lazarus Sumbeiywo, who was the chief negotiator of the Sudan peace process, “It is rapidly emerging that the new biography released by General Lazarus Sumbeiywo last week (written by East African Standard journalist Waithaka Waihenya) has many inconsistencies that contradict earlier reports on some very important events in Kenya’s history. Secondly a lot of the information that is accurate in the book is a threat to the country’s national security.”

    In the Kenyan Military who cares; of late women service has been the target in the barracks once they get married leave alone after giving giving birth. Other ranks, particularly, are kicked out their houses (old British type) once they have seen them publish their husbands for service men occupies.

    This is an abuse that has really degrade them of being in the service. There are many many problems associated to this in the camps ‘owned’ by commandants. Who can help them sort out all this messes? Kenya Govn’t? I doubt!!
