THE Burundi Police chief, Maj. Gen. Fabien Ndayishimiye, has vowed to work with Uganda to eliminate cattle rustling during his tenure as chairman of the East African Police Chiefs Committee.

Last month, he took over from Uganda’s Inspector General of Police, Maj. Gen. Kale Kayihura.

Meeting Uganda’s senior Police officers in Kampala yesterday, Ndayishimiye stressed the need to jointly deal with trans-national crimes.

He cited human trafficking, illicit arms trade, car theft, drug trafficking and money laundering.

“He also vowed to ensure cooperation to eliminate cattle rustling not only in Uganda, but also in Kenya, Ethiopia and Sudan,” the deputy Inspector General of Police, Julius Odwe, commented on the visit.

Other areas of focus, he added, were equipping officers with skills and maintaining a data bank from which the Police in the region could jointly store and access information.

Visiting the Kabalye Police training school in Masindi, which is two years old, Ndayishimiye said he was impressed by its facilities.

He proposed that it be used for member for training. The facility, he was told, was training 11 students from South Sudan and 10 others from Somalia.

The school was relocated from the Masindi army barracks in 2006.
Odwe said the role of Police chiefs committee was to enhance cooperation in the 11 states.
