These KDF salary above are exclusive of allowances. The allowance for a new recruit is Ksh7,172.

A cadet receives allowances amounting to Sh11, 852 while an Officer Cadet who has served three years earns Sh24, 520.

One of the things that army officers enjoy most is the fact that in the barracks, the prices of all commodities are half priced. If, for instance, the normal price of sugar is Ksh 120, then expect to buy the same at Ksh70 or less in the barracks.

KDF soldiers also receive hefty allowances when deployed outside the country for a peace mission. Their daily allowances range between Ksh 5,000-Ksh 10,000. These are really mouth watering KDF soldiers salary allowances.
