Over the weekend a warm reception was held for the arrival of twenty South Sudanese police cadets at the Police University College at Sendafa.
The Ethiopian Police University College has offered two year scholarships for the training of South Sudanese cadets.
South Sudan’s Ambassador Paul, who attended the welcoming ceremony, said “Ethiopia’s contribution to the peace and stability of South Sudan is immense” and added “the training of the police officers is part of these efforts.”
All the expenses of training and accommodation for the two year training of the police officers will be covered by the Ethiopian government.
Students are trained in military engineering skills, armaments, civil and combat ethics and other police-related and military subjects.
