AMISOM Police trains Somali government officials on biometric registration

Mogadishu, 27 April 2018 - AMISOM Police is conducting training on biometric


registration for federal government of Somalia staff to help spearhead the
integration of pro-government militias into the Somali national security forces.
Officials from the Ministry of Internal Security are attending the two-day course, in
Mogadishu, to acquire the necessary skills needed to register members of armed
pro-government groups operating in Galmudug state. A team of officers have
already been trained in Jubbaland and South West states to perform the same
function.
“This particular exercise is being done to capacitate the officers to go to Galmudug
state to also register the regional forces there,” Paul Kissi Frimpong, AMISOM Police
Deputy Coordinator in charge of Reform, Restructuring and Development said.
Mr. Frimpong explained that AMISOM Police decided to train Somali officers to be
part of the exercise after the Federal Government requested the AU Mission’s aid in
registering the pro-government armed groups.
“Apart from the SNA (Somali National Army), some of these states have some
security forces that have been supporting them to fight the Al-Shabaab. These forces
are outside the SNA and (those are the ones) we are going to register,” he added.
Last month AMISOM and Somali security officers commenced the registration of
Darwish militia in Jubbaland to pave way for their integration into the Somali
national security forces. The Darwish militia group has been helping the Jubbaland
administration fight Al-Shabaab militants and restore law and order.
Mr. Frimpong said the exercise was part of AMISOM’s plans to develop capacity of
the Somali national security forces to enable it take over security responsibilities
once AMISOM exits.

“We want to capacitate them (Somali officers), give them the skills to be able to
assist in the ongoing exercise of registering the regional forces. As you are aware
AMISOM is transitioning which means that the Somali security forces must take over
all security responsibilities,” said Mr. Frimpong.
The AMISOM officer noted that it is important for the Federal Government of
Somalia to have comprehensive information of its officers to help in the planning
and execution of security matters.
Last year, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution authorizing the gradual
reduction of AMISOM troops and transfer of security responsibilities to the Somali
national security forces.
