PRESIDENT Mnangagwa has implored the Zimbabwe Defence Forces to maintain the legacy of professionalism and excellency that are products of high quality personal training and development programmes.
Speaking at the 34th graduation ceremony of the Joint Command and Staff Course at the Josiah Magama Tongogara Barracks, the President, who is also the Commander In Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, said the graduates should put into practice what they were taught during their 46 week course, shun corruption, and embrace the ongoing technological revolution.
“As Commander-In-Chief, I recognise the indelible mark of professionalism which the Defence Forces is renowned for on the international scene. I congratulate you for the continued excellent and deserved recognition as reliable, and principled guarantors of stability, peace and security of our jurisdiction and beyond.
“You have done exceptionally well at regional and international levels. This legacy should be jealously protected and continue to be enriched. These achievements are indeed attributed to the high levels of professionalism, discipline and diligence that characterise the Zimbabwe Defence Forces. This is courtesy of the high quality personnel training and development programmes within our various institutions,” the President said.
