This year’s 12th East African Community (EAC) Military Games and Cultural Event 2019 Final Planning Conference (FPC) took place at the Safari Park Hotel on Wednesday, 10 July 19.

Among issues discussed include logistics touching on transport, accommodation for participating contingents, training areas, security and the game fixtures.

Speaking at the conference, Assistant Chief of the Defence Forces Personnel and logistics (ACDF P&L) Major General Fatuma Ahmed emphasized on the importance of such a forum indicating that the organizing committee and sub committees are geared towards ensuring the games run smoothly.

Colonel James Ruzibiza from Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF) was impressed by the facilities designated to host the games as well as accommodate the participants and expressed his confidence in Kenya’s preparedness to host the games.

The EAC Military Games and Cultural event is an annual event aimed at promoting the espirit de corps among the EAC member countries.

This year’s games, scheduled for 11 – 24 August, will have South Sudan as the new kid on the block and this will significantly enrich the East Africa Community culture through the games.

The conference brought together delegates from Kenya, Rwanda, Burundi, Uganda, Tanzania and South Sudan to tie loose ends and ensure the upcoming EAC Military Games and Cultural events commence and run smoothly.
