The Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) has promoted 21 army field officers from the ranks of majors to the substantive ranks of lieutenant colonels.

In an interview with the ZBC News on the sidelines of the investiture ceremony at Josiah Magama Tongogara Barracks today, Brigadier General Administration Staff ZNA Brigadier General Shailet Moyo said the newly promoted senior army officers should remain loyal and dedicate themselves to duty.

“You are expected to lead forces during moments of extreme peril, where life, limps, property and the normal function of vital body organs can be lost,” she said.

The promotions are with effect from 10 March 2018.
