SLWAAM COURSE CLOSING CEREMONY

The Senior Leader's Weapons and Ammunition Accountability and Management course was officially closed on 26th March by Lt Gen (Rtd) Badreldin. Participants included representatives from 12 African countries drawn from Kenya, Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, Ghana, Rwanda, Nigeria, South Sudan, Tanzania among others.

Through partnership with Regional Centre on Small Arms (RECSA) and British Peace Support Team Africa (BPST-A), the training sought to respond to the greater need for weapons and ammunition management activities in the face of emerging threats like small arms proliferation which continue to sustain armed conflict, cattle rustling, acts of terrorism and other crimes.

During the course, participants learnt about weapons and ammunition management in a mix of theoretical, interactive and practical sessions. This included an introduction to normative frameworks as well as hands-on exercises in planning, monitoring and evaluation. Participants also had the opportunity to share their experiences and present transitional weapons and ammunition management approaches. As part of the course, participants visited Karen warehouse which provided a practical illustration on safe handling and storage of weapons.

The course is highly recommended as it seeks to develop resources and expertise to enable senior leaders to design effective weapons and ammunition management activities to counter the proliferation of small arms and lights weapons.

Participants finally, took part in the Covid-19 test exercise to ensure clearance and safety as they head back to their countries of origin.
