Pretoria - The South African Police Service (SAPS) is readying a contingent of peacekeepers for service in Darfur, Sudan.
"Discussions are under way and arrangements are being made," national police spokesperson Director Sally de Beer told reporters on Saturday.
Cabinet on Friday announced that it had approved a request by the African Union for South Africa to contribute a contingent of 100 police officers to Darfur in Sudan, as part of the civilian police component of the AU Peace Mission.
"The advance guard of this police contingent is meant to establish the police headquarters in Darfur during January. The AU police mission will be under the command of SAPS," the Cabinet statement said. - Sapa
