The Republic of Kenya will spend 229 billion shillings on defense, intelligence, and internal security, the country Ministry of Finance has reported during the fiscal year 2015-2016 budget speech.
Kenya hopes to modernize its military while increasing the Intelligence Service capability to detect and preempt threats to the national security effectively.
Currently, the National Intelligence Service and the Military (Kenya Defense Forces) have forged very close relations aimed at scaling up operations against external aggression.
NIS and the KDF are working very closely to destroy the Somali based Islamist terror group Al Shabaab.
The terror group poses a major security and economic challenge to the East African military and economic powerhouse.
