Kenya: Military Personnel

Volume 701: debated on Thursday 8 May 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

How many military personnel are currently serving in Kenya; and whether there are any proposals to increase that number. [HL3346]

There are currently 62 permanent staff serving in Kenya. These are split between several roles including: the Defence Section in the High Commission; the British Peace Support Team—East Africa (BPST-EA); and the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK). BATUK includes 13 permanent staff and 28 augmentees on six-month postings; we are currently reviewing this, and no decisions have been made.
