African Union Transition Mission in Somalia (ATMIS), on Saturday honoured outgoing top officers from the military and police components who played an important role in the transitioning of the mission from the former African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM).
The 74 officers, included Sector Commanders, Staff Officers attached to the ATMIS Force headquarters and Individual Police Officers (IPOs), who have successfully completed their tour of duty, were honoured at a medal and farewell ceremony in Mogadishu, presided over by the Deputy Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union Commission (DSRCC) for Somalia, Fiona Lortan.
Lortan commended the officers for their invaluable contribution to peace and stability in Somalia, particularly during the transition phase from AMISOM to ATMIS.
“Your contributions have been invaluable and your wealth and depth of knowledge will be missed” said Lortan.
