Attaining the status of a general in the Kenya Defense Forces is not an easy task. It involves many years of hard work, rigorous training, and focus. Only a handful of people who have proven to be highly excellent in their work are appointed by the president of Kenya to this position.

Since independence, Kenya has only had 10 generals with the current one, General Kibochi, being the 10th. The general is the chief of defense forces in Kenya and commands all the three sister services (army, airforce, and navy) of the KDF.

A surprising trend has been seen in Kenya where retired generals of the KDF are appointed to certain positions to lead. The recent appointment has seen Retired General Samson Mwathethe appointed as the chairman of the board of directors of KenGen.

Perhaps you may be wondering, why do generals get appointed after retirement? Well, the answer is simple. Generals hold very crucial secrets about the country and its security. They are aware of how the government operates both in public and in secret.

Therefore, the government always wants to keep them closer; watching each and every foot steps they make to ensure that the country's secrets are kept safe. It is no surprise that after the retirement of General Kibochi, he too will get appointed to a governmental position.
