Rwanda Police receive instruction.

KIGALI, Rwanda – A contingent of 160 police officers left Rwanda for Haiti on Monday to serve under the United Nations Mission for Stabilization in Haiti (MINUSTAH).

The officers left Kanombe International Airport at about 10:00 pm aboard RwandAir, the national carrier.

They will replace the first contingent of another 160 officers deployed in Haiti nine months ago, whose mission has ended.

The mission in Haiti serves as a protection force for the UN staffs, crowd control and help in aid distribution in internally displaced camps.

The officers who will be deployed in Jérémie Town, South of Haiti, and will be under the command of Chief Superintendent, Toussaint Muzezayo. Those to be replaced are scheduled to arrive on December 31.

UPDATE: On September 19, 2012, Rwandan “peacekeeper” Bisangwa Hassan, age 34, died of a bullet wound to the head; he is married and a father of two. On Monday, Aloys Nsengiyumva, belonging to the same contingent was also found dead. Both had joined the Rwandan police in 2001 and transferred to MINUSTAH on December 27, 2011.
