Security chiefs from Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya met on May 29, 2014 in Kigali to deliberate on a framework of the mutual defence, peace and security pacts developed by experts from security agencies in the three East African community member states.
Military, Police prisons, intelligence and immigration experts from the three countries have been meeting in Kigali since May 26 to developed a framework that will facilitate the implementation of the pacts signed in February this year by the three Head of States.
The experts’ working group developed policies, organs and structures that were presented and approved by heads of the five security institutions in the three states, during their session on Thursday.
Burundi and South Sudan are attending as observers.
The Inspector General of Rwanda National Police, Emmanuel K. Gasana said these pacts will fast-track the Northern corridor integration projects.
He thanked the experts working group for the good work done and their commitment that resulted into formulating the security document.
“We all look forward to successful deliberation guided by the spirit of fast tracking the Northern corridor integration projects under the guidance of our respective Commanders in Chief,” IGP Gasana said.
The Security chiefs are scheduled to present the framework to their line ministers for amendment and approval on Friday.
