Derived from the name of a then popular British vehicle, the Land Rover. This vehicle saw prominent use among the Kenyan security forces namely the police and military. This was heavily so because of the historical ties the two countries had. Its use is now much diminished as its original intention was to be used in the rough (and often not paved/tarmacked) roads of Kenya.
Land Rover is however now owned by Tata Motors, a subsidiary of Tata group of companies from India
