Another Batch of Sierra Leone Troops Arrive in Somalia

Last Wednesday April 2, Sierra Leones peacekeeping troops arrived in Somalia to join the African Union peacekeeping Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).

 

An advance team from the Sierra Leonean contingent arrived today in Somalia. They will operate alongside the Kenyan contingent, AMISOM said in a statement released over the weekend.

 

The battalion-strong Sierra Leone contingent would be deployed shortly to southern Somalia where Kenyan forces were deployed; the release went further to state.

 

AMISOM said the deployment of the Sierra Leonean troops would enable the Kenyans to withdraw one battalion from the region in accordance with a UN Security Council resolution.

 

The Special Representative welcomed the deployment of the contingent and said that their integration into AMISOM signifies the commitment across Africa to stabilizing Somalia.

 

Sierra Leone was the fifth African country to have contributed troops to the 18,000-strong peacekeeping mission in Somalia alongside troops from Uganda, Djibouti, Burundi and Kenya.

 

The Sierra Leonean Army (SLA) before, had fought an 11 year civil war on its own from 1991 to 2002. Now known as The Republic of Sierra Leone Armed Forces (RSLAF) it is a battle-hardened and transformed force with expert international training and high discipline capable of engaging the enemy in every part of the globe.
