German Navy blog Marine Forum reports,
“The government has announced plans to establish a coast guard to supplement the Kenya Navy … will patrol Kenya’s territorial waters and safeguard marine interests in its exclusive economic zone … money set aside for an offshore patrol vessel (no details) already under construction in India.”
I have to think most smaller countries don’t really need a Navy–they do need a Coast Guard.
Kenya is in East Africa. They have been helpful in countering piracy primarily based in Somalia.
