The training, sponsored by the UK, is one of the four training events arranged by British Peace Support Team
(BPST) East Africa in the lead up to the Field Training Exercise being held in Sudan in November.
Mr Penning also visited the Humanitarian Peace Support School and British Peace Support Team
Eastern Africa, which deliver AMISOM pre-deployment and other training to international military personnel, before meeting Kenyan Defence Minister Raychelle Omamo.
Training will be delivered under the guidance of charity the Tusk Trust, and alongside the British Peace Support Team
(South Africa) and DEFRA.
