Major General Mahamoud Mohamed (Somali: Maxamuud Maxamed, Arabic: محمود محمد‎) was a Somali military commander. A citizen of Kenya, he was the former Chief of General Staff of the Kenyan military.[1]

Career[edit]
Mohamed was born to an ethnic Somali family from the Abudwak sub-clan of the Ogaden Darod.[2][3] His younger brother Hussein Maalim Mohamed was Kenya's Minister of State in the office of the presidency, the first Somali to be appointed to the cabinet.[4]

On 1 August 1982, Mohamed commanded Kenyan military and polices forces in a successful suppression of a coup d'état attempt against then President of Kenya Daniel arap Moi.[5] The putsch had been staged by a group of low-ranking military officers led by Senior Private Hezekiah Ochuka, who was later found guilty of five overt acts and sentenced to death by hanging.[6]

Mohamed would remain the Chief of General Staff of the Kenya Defence Forces for the next ten years
