zdf parade.jpgThe Zimbabwe Defence Forces (ZDF) have been called upon to jealously guard the country against detractors bent on attacking the country’s territorial integrity and sovereignty.

The call was made by the Air Force of Zimbabwe Chief of Staff Operations, Air Vice Marshall Elson Moyo whilst addressing over three hundred troops at a pass out parade held at Field Air Force Base in Chegutu last Friday.

Air Vice Marshall Moyo said it is important for the soldiers to educate the generality of the populace on the machinations of western imperialist bent on disrupting the gains of the hard won independence.

He added that the defence forces had a duty to put into practice the lessons they learnt during their period of instruction.

The military graduates were drawn from the Zimbabwe National Army and the Air force of Zimbabwe.
