It was one of the largest displays of military might since Kenya became a republic. The armed forces staged a show of strength as the country ushered in a new constitutional order. This was the first glimpse the world has seen of the results of an ongoing military modernisation programme. In 2008 alone, Kenya spent a massive 27 billion shillings to buy combat aircraft, helicopters, grenade launchers and other light arms. More has been spent in other years in programmes supported by China, the United States and other nations.
