CARE- TAKER PM ACKNOWLEDGED FIJI MILITARY’S COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENTS
The care- taker Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare has acknowledged the Fiji Military contingent serving under Solomon International Assistance Force (SIAF) for their active community engagements.
PM Sogavare made the acknowledgement to the Republic of Fiji Military Force contingent commander Colonel Sake Baka in a courtesy call initiated by the latter.
PM Sogavare encouraged the Fiji military to continue with the fine job of working with communities.
The care- taker Prime Minister also acknowledged the positive changes in communities such as Burnscreek where criminal activities have been somewhat absent since RFMF has taken an active role in engaging with the community there.
The Prime Minister stressed that these positive changes displayed that community relations and engagements are effective tools in bringing about aspired changes.
The Republic of Fiji Military Force (RFMF) is a component of the Solomon International Assistance Force (SIAF) who are here to continue with security assistance ahead of the national general election in April of this year.
Colonel Baka is the contingent commander of the RFMF and he made the courtesy call purposely to inform the care- taker Prime Minister on a number of activities the Fiji military force have engaged in during the festive season.
The colonel highlighted the sporting activities at Gilbert Camp and a general cleaning up service at Burnscreek at the New Year.
Colonel Baka emphasized that RFMF employed a non- combative approach to community policing and placed high emphasis on building community relationships and unity.
