Rwanda: 120 Police Officers Leave for Haiti-Added COMMENTARY By Haitian-Truth

The New Times (Kigali)

Kigali — A contingent of 120 Police officers, Monday morning, left for a peace keeping mission to Haiti. The officers are joining an advance party of 40 who left last month.

This is the first time Rwanda has sent a Formed Police Unit (FPU) to any peace keeping mission. They will be serving under the mandate of United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH).

According to the Police spokesperson, Superintendent Theos Badege, the Formed Police Unit will perform various peace keeping duties.

“They will maintain order, conduct patrols, guard VIP and key installations, provide humanitarian assistance and security of Internally Displaced Persons among other duties,” Badege said.

The FPU equipped with light weapons and armored vehicles will be deployed in Jérémie Town, south of Haiti. The contingent is led by Chief Superintendent, Egide Ruzigamanzi.

Emmanuel Gasana, the Inspector General of Police, reminded the contingent that they are the ambassadors and pride of their country.

“You are renowned for your professionalism. I urge you to maintain an exemplary level of discipline and commitment throughout the twelve months of your stay in Haiti,” Gasana told the officers before they departed.

In addition to the FPU, there are 34 Police advisors currently serving in Haiti.

Rwanda National Police currently has 374 peacekeeping officers serving in UN missions in Liberia, Ivory Coast, Sudan, Chad and Haiti.

“Rwanda is one of the Police contributing countries selected by United Nations to bring peace to the world. This is due to its professional and disciplined security organs and willingness to contribute to stability,” Gasana said.

The Rwandan National Police is committed to ensuring the safety of its citizens and contribute to peace around the World.



It inspires a feeling of confidence to have members of the Rwandan police in our midst. I hope that they don’t try and cleanse our society of opposition tribal elements.

Their nation’s firm foundation of human rights respect should engender a feeling of confidence as other units bring cholera to our water supply, deal in cocaine, child prostitution and kidnapping.

Very kind of the UN to train the Haitian population in these Democracy Based societal traits.

  1. wow. This commentary is very sarcastic. I can see that frustration is as common as the need for housing in Haiti. Democracy works in other countries- why not Haiti

  2. because it is not the democracy in the USA CANADA UK and all the G20 members they want to install in the poor countries. it is a fake democracy.a dictatorship painted as to be in favor of the poor nations when they certianly know that they are not looking to change the statuquo.our needs make big oportunities for many others.Dminican republic for example,is making big money with the fact that we do not produce anymore,do you think that they would like us to stop their 50 fully loaded containers from crossing our border daily and invade our market,when those containers return back u really think that it will be good for their militaries to return to their original task which was cutting the suggar can. think twice mon ami,if this is a democracy to u then u need to wake up.
    Wanda is a country victim of segregation installed by belgium. they hate eachother they value people there based on how light in your skin, i do not see what peace can they bring to Haiti when they constantly have war themselves in their homeland.
    those 40 men, who are probably criminals, are not going to bring any better change for my country,the UN should have trained haitian police forces to transit power soon, not bringing more disease and all kind of trashes to haitian soil.i see no sarcasme here, but i can understan a no patriot who have probably sold his soul to the devil for money how much less would he care for his country
