Background: At the Kenya Airforce Headquarters here in Nairobi, recruiting has started for the newly formed Kenya Navy.This morning many young aspiring African navymen turned up for the preliminary interviews - many of them sporting their school certificates which were framed - whilst many more were telling the interviewing officers that they were still awaiting theirs form the education authorities.The Navy spokesman said that he was unable to disclose the number of applications that they had received to date, or the number of recruits that were required.So far the navy consists of one small ship which is laying at Mombasa, but the government have hopes that this will be increased in the not too distant future.The interviewing officers were members of the Royal Navy who are at present on secondment to the Kenya Navy.
