Kenya’s soldiers have been trained for various missions however the different missions are all geared towards protecting the country, having its best interest first.
The military engineering training and department is meant for the soldiers who receive instructions to assemble and demolish at the battle field.
In some cases, while combating terror attack or responding to a security call, soldiers have often been required to skillfully demolish in order to rescue the situation.
Buildings may be required to be taken down during the rescue operation thus soldiers who have gone through this training come in handy.
The practice, which is often risky for civilians who have not undergone military training, also equips the soldiers who will be responsible for maintaining lines of military transport and communications.
Military communication is vital for the troop’s success. Soldiers need to effectively communicate while receiving instructions and immediately after executing these instructions.
They are also responsible for logistics behind military strategies. This shapes the soldiers’ physical operating environment.
This department has also been well trained in forceful protection and how to counter-improvised explosive devices (IED), environmental protection, engineer intelligence and military search.
In the absence of war, the team participates in activities such as flood control, river navigation as called upon from time to time.
