Members of the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK) supported one of their colleagues along with members of the Kenya Defence Force (KDF) to help make this year’s Madaraka Day one to remember.
Mr Dan Ochola, one of the members of the BATUK Project Continuity Office threw a surprise homecoming party for his wife, Mrs Christine Ochola, a serving KDF soldier in 10 Engineers, to celebrate her safe return from operations in South Sudan.
Christine’s Commanding Officer Major Andy Kipkemoi was the guest of honour alongside the Community Engagement Team. The party wasn’t the only surprise for Christine who was given a car as a gift at the culmination of the party.
As well as welcoming Christine home, BATUK reported that the day was a huge success “and afforded the opportunity for the soldiers and civilians work force of BATUK to socialise together along with the Kenyan Defence Force.”
