militarytimes | US and Kenya sign defense agreement ahead of planned Haiti deployment, 26 Sep
The U.S. and Kenya signed a defense agreement Monday [25 Sep] that will see the East African nation get resources and support for security deployments as it is poised to lead a multi-national peacekeeping mission to Haiti to combat gang violence.

U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and Kenya's Defense Minister Aden Duale signed the accord at a meeting in the Kenyan capital, Nairobi. The agreement guides the countries' defense relations for the next five years as the war in East Africa against the al-Qaeda linked al-Shabab extremist group intensifies.

Austin thanked Kenya for volunteering to take the leadership of the Haiti multi-national force and reiterated that the U.S government would work with Congress to secure the $100 million in funding that it pledged on the sidelines of the U.N General Assembly.

In my early youth, boy's books and strips about exploring Africa and missionary work was in ... of course the journey into "Dark Africa" by Dr. Livingstone was well known.

My first encounter with politics was likely reading small newspaper article about the Mau Mau rebellion ... the name of course stuck in memory ... ugly terrorists.
