Officers match past during the passout ceremony at Emali.
The forth group of 37 senior officers undergoing paramilitary training at the Administration Police Senior Staff Training College recently passed out at a colourful ceremony in Emali. The officers were all smiles as family and friends gathered to celebrate their big day which came after six weeks of grueling training.
Speaking the ceremony, the guest of honour who is the Director of the Kenya Forestry Research Institute (KEFRI) Dr. Ben Chikamai congratulated them and urged them to put to practice what they had learnt and in particular use their training to improve forest management in the country.
On his part, the KFS Director Mr. David Mbugua asked the graduating officers to wear their uniforms with pride and take their roles as forest managers seriously. He said that the training was meant to among other things bridge the divide between them and the Forest Rangers with whom they work together in the management forests.
