Kenya gets some U.S. boats to help maritime patrols


As set out in U.S. Donates Boats to Secure Kenya's Coastline :
The Kenya Navy has stepped up patrols on the Kenyan coastline to stave off maritime threats including terrorism, arms and drugs trafficking.

It is buoyed by a donation of six powerful armoured speedboats worth Sh216 million from the United States to enhance its efforts to police the country's territorial waters.

The vessels - five 25-foot (eight-metre) "Defender" class boats and one 42-foot (13-metre) "Archangel" class boat - along with equipment, supplies and training were turned over to the Kenya Navy on Friday at their headquarters in Mombasa.
