ACP Kayijuka, while speaking to the media upon arrival at Kigali International Airport, commended the resilience and professionalism exhibited by the officers under his command during their tour of duty.

“We are grateful to be back home. We are all safe, physically and mentally, ready to continue serving our country in other capacities that we will be assigned,” he noted.

“Any successful tour of duty depends upon the pre-deployment preparation, readiness and understanding the mission architecture and support from the sending country; we are, therefore, thankful for the support from RNP and the Government of Rwanda prior and during the mission, which helped us to serve successfully as required,” he added.
