WINDHOEK - Last Friday the Inspector General of the Namibian Police, Lieutenant General Sebastian Ndeitunga officially welcomed the recently graduated reserves following their six-weeks course on Special Reserve Force basic training that started in July at Khan-Mine in the Erongo Region.
About 43 members reported for training but only 29 managed to complete the training and among the 29 were four females, while the group that didn’t make it had one female.
Ndeitunga described the Special Reserve Force division as one of the most specialized arms of the Namibian police with the primary purpose to handle high-risk operations that cannot be handled by the classic police.
He reiterated that their responsibilities are not limited to public order management, hostage situations, terrorism and dangerous suspects just to mention a few.
He stressed the issue of the upcoming elections and called for free and peaceful political campaigns, saying “failure to do so the Special Reserve Force will intervene to mitigate security challenges, that’s why they are being trained with special skills, tactics and advanced techniques.”
Ndeitunga applauded the trainees and the training management for their efforts stating that “training hard allows you to fight easy, now you have learned the true meaning of hard times never kill, but they only come and go.”
“You have earned yourself black berets and a reserve force unit badge therefore wear it with pride,” said Ndeitunga.
