Military Cooperation - French frigate « La Fayette » makes a port call in Mombasa [fr]
The stealth frigate « La Fayette » was in Mombasa from 7th to 11th October 2016.
The Commanding Officer, Captain Stanislas Delatte, together with the Chargée d’Affaires of the French Embassy, Mme Ramoneda and the Defence Officer, LCL Dumarché carried out formal visits. They paid a courtesy call to the Navy Chief of staff, General Mghalu and to the deputy Governor of Mombasa Mrs. Katana.
Later on, an official lunch gathered Mombasa’s civil and military authorities aboard the frigate.
The fruitful discussions allowed the reassertion of France’s action in the fight against piracy in the Indian Ocean. They also helped strenghtening cooperation between the French and Kenya navy.
