RNP committed to enhancing peacekeeping knowledge

Rwanda National Police (RNP) remains committed to developing and enhancing knowledge and training skills of trainers to achieve its peacekeeping mandate.

While officially closing a two-week UN Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) course at the Police Training School (PTS) Gishari in Rwamagana District, on Friday, May 26, Commissioner of Police (CP) Bruce Munyambo said that the training is a valuable addition to the force's peacekeeping constitutional mandate.

"This training is a product of the existing partnership between UNITAR and Rwanda National Police.

In contributing personnel to peacekeeping missions, Rwanda National Police aims at delivering peace to the region and beyond, and it is within its constitutional mandate," CP Munyambo, who represented the RNP leadership, said.

To fulfill this commitment, he added, there is need to have competent, disciplined, skilled and professional Police, which is achieved through regular training.

"This is in line with the desire to achieve full operational capacity in mission areas," CP Munyambo said.

He reminded the trainees that the course has improved their capacity in peacekeeping operations training, and urged them to put the skills to effective use.

"It has given you the necessary skills and expertise that enables you to produce trainees capable of copying up with international standards in multinational peacekeeping operations."

Eliane Maisonneuve, one of the UNITAR trainers, thanked the trainees for their active participation during the past two weeks, and thanked the RNP leadership for the support.

"As trainers, we can always be better, and we never stop learning. As facilitators, we have to learn from each other," Maisonneuve said.

One of the trainees, Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP) Eugine Mushayija, said that course was characterized by different methodologies and modules that shaped them to be good trainers.

"We are now well equipped with the required skills, which we will apply in our training schools and programmes," ACP Mushayija said.
