The US has raised the alarm over alleged plans by China to establish a military base in Kenya and extend its grip beyond economic and investment ties. By setting up a base in Kenya, Washington warned that Beijing wants to boost its military and economic influence over Kenya and other countries in Africa.

Nairobi and Washington have strong military engagements.
