AMISOM officers will hand in hand with Somali police to make sure Somali populous as well as visitors go about their businesses without disruptions.
AMISOM police officers from Formed Police Units (FPUs) of Uganda and Nigeria, and Individual Police Officers (IPOs) were dispatched after a briefing by the Acting AMISOM Police Commissioner, Francis Ayitey Aryee, and AMISOM Police Acting Operations Coordinator, Emmanuel Mukama.
The officers have been deployed to key and strategic locations as part of new measures to help beef-up security and maintain peace during Ramadan period.
