“In fact the Expressions of Interest (EOI) were sent out in December last year. The promoted officers will enable the RSIPF to effectively carry out its leadership roles to new heights, at the same time motivate other officers to work hard to get promotions.”

“The promotions came about due to hard work, displaying sound leadership by officers, role models to others, sound communications skills, displaying very high management skills, having the highest integrity and shown accountability for their actions,” says Acting Commissioner Mangau
