    The African Union Mission (AMISOM) has awarded medals to a contingent of Uganda Formed Police Unit (FPU) personnel to recognise their contribution to peace and security in Somalia.


    The 160 police personnel from the Uganda FPU 9th contingent are set to return home after completing one year and three months of service with AMISOM.

    The AMISOM personnel supported their Somali Police Force (SPF) counterparts to secure the elections. They also performed duties such as guarding government installations, conducting patrols, ensuring public order, guarding VIPs and high-level events.

    A ceremony to award the medals took place in Mogadishu on Sunday, witnessed by AMISOM Police leadership.

    The AMISOM Police Commissioner, Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIGP) Augustine Magnus Kailie, hailed the outgoing contingent for their professionalism and contribution to the Somalia peace process.

    Thank you very much for your commitment, hard work and teamwork and your contribution towards making peace happen

    AIGP Kailie added, “I want to commend you for your courage. Now it is time for you to go home. It is not easy to be on a mission like this.”

    AIGP Kailie also hailed the contingent for the cordial working relationship with their counterparts from the Nigeria Police Force during the performance of the mandated tasks.
