Jakarta to train Mozambique officers

5 December, 2005

The Jakarta Post, Dec. 5, 20JAKARTA: Maputo city administration in the Republic of Mozambique has requested assistance from the Jakarta administration for training of public order officers, reported on Sunday.

“At first they wanted the police, but I told them that the police were under the state, and that the city only has public order officers. I told them about their job, and the Maputo administration considered it important enough to ask for training,” Governor Sutiyoso was quoted as saying.

He said that the Maputo administration requested him to send trainers to Mozambique, but that “for the technicalities we’ll have to wait for the Maputo delegation to return our courtesy call”.

Last week, Sutiyoso visited two African countries to sign a provincial city agreement with South Africa’s province of Kwazuku Natal and a sister city agreement with Mozambique’s capital of Maputo.
