IED THREAT MITIGATION SENIOR LEADERSHIP SEMINAR
The IED Threat Mitigation Senior Leadership Seminar was officially opened on Monday, 29th Nov 2021 by Col I K Guleid, Col Plans & Progs IPSTC, at the Peace and Conflict Studies School Karen.
The 4-day seminar has 18 participants from Kenya, Malawi, Burundi, Uganda, and Zambia. The aim of the course is to enhance senior leaders, staff officers, and planners' knowledge on fundamentals of IED threat mitigation who are currently earmarked on UN/AU mission.
"Currently, AMISOM is facing threats of VE which can only be mitigated through training on CIED. The course will familiarise officers on CIED and constraints led by IEDs," stated Col Guleid.
The course arose owing to the negative impact caused by explosive hazards resulting in the loss of lives, livelihoods, and limiting mission effectiveness.
