In the process of seeking peace in the Darfur region, Rwanda in collaboration with the UN has started sending Aerial peacekeeping forces to Darfur.
Today’s phase was to send materials including Helicopters that will help Rwandan troops in their mission of peace.
By Friday, 85 Commandos will head to peacekeeping mission in Darfur and will use those materials.
According to the Spokesperson of Rwanda Defense forces Brig. Gen. Nzabamwita Joseph, sending Rwandan troops in Darfur marks the commitment that Rwanda has in finding long lasting solution to the instabilities in South Soudan.
Maj. Gen Frank Mushyo Kamanzi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Rwanda Defence Forces (RDF), has asked the sent delegation to be ambassadors of peace and show discipline in the mission that they are to accomplish.
To date, Rwanda has about 800 peacekeepers in South Sudan.
