Preparations for the 2018 Air Force of Zimbabwe (AFZ) Commander Horse Race and Air Day set for this Saturday at the Borrowdale race course are at an advanced stage with all the necessary logistics now in place.

The AFZ said it is in full throttle preparing and holding rehearsals for the 2018 Horse Race and Air Day.

AFZ public relations officer squadron leader Special Matarirano said the programme is meant to raise funds for the AFZ Commander’s charity work towards assisting vulnerable communities across the country.

“We encourage people to come out in their numbers and have fun with their families and friends,” he said.

The event is going to witness live horse racing, helicopter drills, and parachute jumps while a rich line up of musicians are billed to perform.

These include Sulumani Chimbetu, Killer T, Freeman and Fungisai Zvakavapano Mashavave among others.
