DRC to join East African Police Chiefs Cooperation

By Samuel Ssebuliba

East African police chiefs have embarked on a move to add the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) as a member of East African Police Chiefs Cooperation.

The move follows increased lawlessness in the DRC, with criminals from across the region using it as a destination for stolen goods especially vehicles and motorcycles.

According to Asan Kasingye the police spokesperson, having the DRC as a member of a regional security body will ensure that security measures are harmonized and uniformly implemented.
