Rwanda National Police (RNP), on Monday, rotated its Formed Police Unit (FPU) contingent of 240 officers serving under the United Nations Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS).
The newly deployed Rwanda FPU1-V hybrid, commanded by Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Fabien Musinguzi, replaced Rwanda FPU1-IV, which returned home safely later in the afternoon having completed its one-year peacekeeping tour of duty.
Commissioner of Police Bruce Munyambo saluted the rotated contingents at Kigali International Airport.
Rwanda FPU1-V took over the stands in Malakal, Upper Nile State where they will be largely charged with the protection of civilians in internally displaced camps, UN personnel, security of key installations and humanitarian assistance, among others.
Munyambo, while speaking to the replaced contingent on arrival at KIA, thanked them for the “good work” and “representing the country ably.”
