Rwandan and Ugandan Police have started a joint disaster preparedness and management exercise.

The exercise was officially launched by Seraphine Mukantabana, the Minister for Disaster Management and Refugee Affairs, at Gishari Police Training School in Rwamagana District, yesterday.

The three-day exercise code-named CPX-SAVE LIFE, attracted at least 32 police officers from both countries.

Addressing government officials and the officers from both countries, IGP Emmanuel Gasana, said the exercise would enhance police capabilities to deal with asymmetrical threats like refugees influx.

“We are living in a rapid changing world, where according to Red Cross statistics 50 million people have been killed since 1900. Today, human security is under threat, which is why we are concerned as Police. Influx of refugees and terrorism pose great danger to our region,” he said.
