UNSOA and AMISOM hold logistics workshop to enhance service delivery
A two-day logistics workshop bringing together top officials of the United Nations Support Office for AMISOM (UNSOA) and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has ended in Mogadishu.
The workshop mapped out ideas on how to enhance logistical efficiency and improve operations for the mission.
“We are coming together to see what the logistics and support gaps are to develop a working plan on how to fix the gaps in order to ensure efficiency and effectiveness in service delivery,” Ernie Manzano, the UNSOA Officer In Charge Operations said on Thursday.
Speaking at the start of the workshop AMISOM’s Deputy Force Commander Maj. Gen. Nakibus Lakara called for frank and open discussions. “I hope at the end of the day everybody will speak on what must be done to create an efficient system. This mission must succeed and there is no question about that,” he emphasized.
AMISOM’s Acting Chief of Integrated Support Services (CISS) Brian Boucher said: “We want to get a better understanding of how UNSOA and various sectors operate so that we can plan better.”
The workshop was also attended by AMISOM’s Chief Of Logistics Col. Gerbi Kebede, among others.
