Southern Africa: Angola Takes Up SADC Police Chair

Gaborone — Angola assumed since Thursday a three-year rotating chairmanship of the Southern Africa Development Community Police (SADCPOL) after the presentation of the super-intendant chief of the National Police (PN), David Cabaça, as director of the area.

A note from the Angolan Embassy in Botswana that reached ANGOP indicates that the new director of SADCPOL was presented to the Secretary General of the SADC, Tomaz Augusto Salomão, by the inspector general of the National Police (PN) of Angola, Chief Commissioner Salvador Rodrigues, who left for Gaborone for the purpose.

As part of the turnover of the occupation of the post of Director of SADCPOL, it's time for Angola to appoint a senior officer of his police force to represent the country in the police component of the SADC Standby Forces, which is responsible for peacekeeping missions in the region.

The super-intendant chief David Cabaça, who ended in 2012 his mission as official of logistics of SADC police, replaces the sub-commissioner Daniel Mayambe, from the United Republic of Tanzania.
