STORYLINE:

Senegalese police and gendarmes deployed in the Central African Republic under the United Nations banner received medals during a ceremony held on Wednesday (04 Apr) in capital Bangui.

Senegalese peacekeepers play a vital role in the UN mission in CAR (MINUSCA) and were previously deployed in Bangassou, a city in the country’s south-east which was battered by inter-communal violence.

Speaking at MINUSCA the medal ceremony, Police Commander General Roland Zamora said the mission was not in the Central African Republic "to submit to cowardly individuals who are attacking us, but to protect civilian populations who are suffering and to arrest individuals who do not want to hear about peace and who make war an economic activity.”

Senegal is a major troop contributor to UN peacekeeping missions. More than 290 police and Senegalese gendarmes are currently serving in MINUSCA.

The medal ceremony coincided with the celebration of the 58th anniversary of Senegal’s independence day.
