ZNA recruits

Herald Reporter
The Zimbabwe National Army is on a recruitment drive and is inviting prospective soldiers to report at designated military camps in their respective provinces of origin throughout the country. In a Press statement yesterday, ZNA public relations officer Lieutenant Colonel Alphios Makotore said prospective candidates should be between 18 and 22 years.

“The potential candidates will be required to report between March  17 and May 31, 2014 at designated military camps in their respective provinces of origin throughout the country.

“The candidates must have “A” Level passes with a minimum of six points (6), plus five (5) “O” level passes at grade C or better including English Language and Mathematics. They must also be aged between 18 and 22 years for “A” level holders and 18 and 24 years for those with diplomas, or any other higher qualifications,” he said.

    Sometimes one is really left dumbfounded by the priorities attributed to the military by this Government.
    Knowing the current overstaffed and bloated situation of the armed forces, and the State’s inability to pay decent wages on time or correctly feed or even supply uniforms to present levels of recruits, we can question the wisdom or utility of such initiatives.
    With increasing cooperation between neighbouring forces within the SADC and beyond, and predominantly friendly relations between governments, current trends are for much smaller units, highly trained, professional, and more efficient effectives within the armies. A recruitment drive given the parlous state of the economy, can only be viewed with suspicion and considered as highly irresponsible action by the powers that be.
