EASF Oversees Staff Rotation at the Secretariat

In accordance with EASF's Rotation Matrix, the Secretariat in Karen, Nairobi, bid farewell to Officers from the Planning Element (PlanElm) and welcomed their replacements as well as a new Technical Advisor on Friday 11th May 2018.

On behalf of the entire EASF fraternity, the Director, Dr. Abdillahi Omar Bouh expressed his gratitude to the respective Member States for availing dedicated Officers to serve at the Secretariat. Among other contributions, the Officers have played key roles in organizing and coordinating Planning Element's (PlanElms) activities including Peace Support Operations' trainings. Among the most memorable trainings was the multinational and multidimensional Field Training Exercise (FTX), successfully conducted in November/December 2017 in the Republic of the Sudan.

Dr. Bouh also thanked the Republic of Finland and the Kingdom of Norway for the unwavering support they have been according the Standby Force over the years. This includes provision of highly qualified Technical Advisors who have been contributing to the capacity development of the organization.

Staff rotations are usually rolled out alphabetically among the ten EASF Member States in order to ensure an equitable approach in representation within the Standby Force. A single position will thus rotate through Burundi, Comoros, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, Somalia, Sudan and Uganda for a specified period of time.

Other speakers during the ceremony included the Head of Peace Operations' Department, Brigadier Albert Kendagor and the Human Resource Officer, Colonel Viator Niyonyabo.
