The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) said Thursday it has completed training 22 police officers on gender and human rights protection.
The AU mission said the three-day program was an integral part of the AMISOM Police mandate.
“Gender is everybody’s business. You cannot teach others when you are not grounded. Some people may think gender is only about women; it’s not. It’s about everybody. Women, men, children, everybody,” AMISOM police commissioner Augustine Magnus Kailie said in a statement issued in Mogadishu.
The trainees included trainers and mentors serving under the police component of the AMISOM.
They were introduced to both local and international frameworks governing gender and human rights protection. Enditem
