Zambia, AU sign MoU on deployment of Police Officers to African Union Mission in Somalia

General News Zambia, AU sign MoU on deployment of Police Officers to African Union...

Zambia and the African Union have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the deployment of police officers to the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

Zambia’s Ambassador to Ethiopia and Permanent Representative to the African Union, Emmanuel Mwamba signed the MoU on behalf of Zambia.

Mr. Mwamba said the signing of the memorandum of understanding would increase the number of police officers Zambia was allocated to send for the AMISOM from the current 38 to 160.

He said at the signing ceremony that Zambia’s police officers and soldiers who are deployed to various United Nations and African Union missions were known to be distinguished and very disciplined in the field.

Mr. Mwamba further said although Zambia had been deploying individual police officers to African Union missions since 2012, this was done without a memorandum of understanding.

He reiterated that it was important for member states to institutionalise the deployment of officers to the African Union mission by signing an MoU.

And signing on behalf of the African Union Commission, Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security, Bankole Adeoye, said Zambia was a model of democracy in Africa.

Ambassador Adeoye said Zambia had also helped many African countries through peace-keeping and peace building efforts across the continent.

This is contained in a statement issued to ZANIS by First Secretary for Press and Tourism at the Zambian Mission in Addis Ababa, Inutu Mwanza.


  1. As peaceable as Zambians are, they make peacekeeping ventures resoundingly blissful. Besides, when they return home, they look like they have just been given their retirement benefits.

  2. Mulongoti Machayi – Anyone can do an excellent job if their profession is respected with a competitive salary.

  3. “The main difference between Army and Police is that the Army is a military branch of service primarily focused on ground warfare and Police is a constituted body of persons empowered by the state to enforce the law. Police is a Law enforcing agency and Law and order is the State subject. Army is to protect the borders.”

    PF time out.

    “How do you study that in an objective way, since it seems to be happening in the background, not spread intentionally by people?
    We have wonderful new technologies for studying the evolution of culture, because so much of culture now is represented on the internet.”

  4. Great stuff. When you part of the firm you not only enjoy the benefits but you also have to contribute. We are Africans first. The u.p.n.d diasporans would never understand because they are brain washed by the whlte man who actually hates them

  5. I will
    Make a light comment here. Our police are very corrupt will just end up in trouble. They have cadre mentality and most of them these days can not even speak English. Not a good move, they will tarnish image of country!

  6. Nemwine and Mercury are both right.Besides we’re sending Zambians to al shabbaab terrorist country with regular suicide bombings…its a no no on many levels.

  7. Tjis man Emmanuel Mwamba seems to know how to spin certain things. For the first time I saw adverts for various positions at AU whilst in the past it was kept away from public eye. AS for deployment of police officers since 2012 without MOU and were being deployed in their individual capacities, how come. There must have been a cartel which was selecting individuals after being oiled. Well done job Ambassador Emmanuel Mwamba I wish you were 10 of you in our missions abroad.
