The sprinter thanked the NPS and the government for their support of talent. He also promised to reciprocate their gratitude by performing well in the track competitions. "It is an honor to serve the National Police Service, and as an athlete, I pledge to do my best," he said.

IG Mutyambai urged Omanyala to retain his sporting discipline in order for him to reach his full potential and fulfill his new job as a police athlete. "I wish you luck in your service to your country," the Inspector General said.
