President Ruto leads moment of silence in honour of late General Ogolla

President William Ruto led a gathering of KDF officers in observing a one-minute moment of silence in memory of the late Chief of Defence Forces General Francis Ogolla and the officers who died with him in a military helicopter crash last month.

This happened during the pass-out parade for Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) officers at the Defence Forces Recruit Training School in Eldoret, Uasin Gishu County on Wednesday, May 15.

President Ruto noted that General Ogolla’s wise leadership, magnificent example, integrity and dedication was the best example of Kenyan professionalism, showcasing the KDF at its finest and serving as a beacon for all Kenyans.

The President said General Ogolla’s legacy will continue to inspire many in the military and public service.

The late General Ogolla died alongside 9 other KDF officers when their chopper crashed at Sindar area, Kaben location, Tot division, in Elgeyo Marakwet County.

The President assured KDF officers the government’s unwavering support and commitment of the people of Kenya and to the continuous enhancement of their capabilities and the promotion of their welfare to ensure that they are well-equipped to meet current and emerging challenges.

He also commended the Defence Forces Recruit Training School community, from the commandant to all members of staff, for their dedication in educating and training soldiers and equipping them with the necessary knowledge and skills.

“Your collective efforts have enabled this school to continue producing service members who meet the highest standards of professionalism,” he said.
