Commissioner of Police (CP) Denis Basabose received the contingent at Kigali International Airport.
Rwanda FPU2-7, which returned home safely under the command of Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) John Niyibizi, was earlier in the morning replaced by Rwanda FPU2-8 commanded by CSP Jean Bosco Rudasingwa.
It operates in Kaga-Bandoro, about 300km from the capital Bangui. CP Basabose thanked the contingent for withstanding the mission challenges to represent their country ably.
"Welcome back home! Your commitment, resilience, discipline and professionalism has left a legacy back... those who have replaced you will build on.
Maintain that spirit even back home when you resume your policing duties," CP Basabose told the officers.
SSP Niyibizi said that over the year, they worked with other peacekeepers, local authorities and the local people, who were under their protection.
Besides their formal peacekeeping mandate especially protection of civilians, he added, the contingent also engaged in different activities aimed at uplifting the wellbeing of the people.
"We engaged in environmental protection activities, provided free medical consultations, donated medical supplies as well as voluntary blood donation to save those in need," SSP Niyibizi said.
