Internal documents from U.S. Africa Command have revealed a plan to extend and implement more military bases throughout Africa. Over $330 million was prioritized as spending to solidify locations and generate new bases from 2021 to 2025. Long term planning notes also mention extending this idea for the next 20 years. The countries of Djibouti, Kenya and Niger were mentioned in the documents and depict twelve new bases planned between the three countries. The mission of these new locations will be to continue the fight against terrorism and counter-violent extremist missions throughout the continent.
