UK donates RHIB to Kenya

23 June 2013

The Kenyan Navy has been donated a rigid-hulled inflatable boat (RHIB) from the UK as part of a wider effort to improve the African country's maritime security.

"The boat is an interceptor, capable of quick reaction and rapid interdiction of suspect vessels," the British High Commission said in a 21 June statement. "It will bolster the Kenya Navy's ability to tackle piracy threats and other illegal activity in the area. It carries a fully armed four-man boarding party who can carry out search and detain tasks. It will be used for patrolling tasks, but with its powerful sea-search radar it can detect, deter and interdict."
