In April 2014, the Ugandan police requested the country's parliament to allocate them more funds in the next financial year (2015/2016) to acquire equipment for quelling protests around the country.

With these new armoured vehicles, the Kenyan National Police Service will no longer have to depend on other agencies such as the Kenya Defence Forces to perform their duties in dealing with terrorism and relate crimes.

In Kenya, the armoured vehicles are to be used by police in securing the frontier areas in the country.

More than 35 armoured vehicles were unloaded at the port of Mombasa in Kenya, ahead of the country's presidential and parliamentary elections set for February 18.
