The Air Force of Zimbabwe (AFZ) has noted with great concern a wave of misinformation through social media, with the latest claim purporting that there will be a massive recruitment by the force from the 13th to the 16th of this month.

In a statement to the ZBC News, AFZ Public Relations Officer, Squadron Leader Special Matarirano said the social media advert is not only misleading but a malicious lie.

“The AFZ does not convey official messages through the social media and undesignated platforms. Any advert on AFZ recruitment will be disseminated and broadcast through mainstream media such as newspapers like the Herald, the Sunday Mail and the ZBC,” Squadron Leader Matarirano said.

He added that the public is therefore being advised to disregard information that is published, disseminated and propagated through unofficial social media sites or immediately verify the authenticity of such information from the AFZ Public Relations Department  or Recruitment Office on the following telephone numbers: 04-799529 or cell number 0712 831 408.
