The two Police institutions, therefore, intends to exchange, among others, training programmes, trainees and trainers.
IGP Munyuza commended the Kanfinsa College administration for the offered professional courses, emphasizing that “training is the backbone of Police efficiency.”
Prior to visiting the School, IGP Munyuza paid a courtesy call to the Copperbelt Provincial Police Commissioner, Charity Katanga as well as the Copperbelt Province Permanent Secretary.
Both the Permanent Secretary and the Police Commissioner appreciated the security cooperation between Rwanda and Zambia Police institutions, which will promote exchange of best practices, further building the capacity of the two forces to collectively respond to modern cross-border security threats.
