Lance Corporal Kennedy Mutonga Muia, aged 28, from Stoke-on-Trent, has received a Commander’s Coin from the Commander of Task Force Helmand, Brigadier Bob Bruce, for his work as a chef while deployed in support of the Scots Guards in Afghanistan.

Lance Corporal Muia, originally from Kenya, was awarded the commendation for his ‘selfless dedication to duty, always putting others before himself’, as his citation reads.

He received the award alongside 7 other Royal Logistic Corps chefs who were also completing their tours of the province.

Lance Corporal Muia’s citation goes on to say:

“His achievements cut across professional, sporting, spiritual and social lines, and have touched soldiers’ lives at both the collective and individual levels.”
