THE commander of the Air Force of Zimbabwe, Air Marshal Elson Moyo, has said the country is ready to deal with those who are indisciplined and are bent on putting the name of the organisation into disrepute.
Speaking during a graduation ceremony of six Air Force of Zimbabwe officers who underwent Basic Officers’ Course in 2018, Air Marshal Moyo said the military had sufficient structures to deal with indiscipline and would not hesitate to take strict action against those who stray from the military rules and regulations.
“Discipline is the bedrock from which the Air Force of Zimbabwe has over the years scored numerous successes in military and humanitarian assistance and operations.
“As a result the Zimbabwe Defence Forces are known worldwide for our standards of military discipline as evidenced in operations that were carried out successfully in Mozambique, Angola, Somalia, DRC among other operations.
“We are aware of some cases of indiscipline that were reported during the course of the training programme.
“We have sufficient structures to deal with indiscipline in the Air Force of Zimbabwe.
“We will not hesitate to take strict action on those who stray from the military rules and regulations.
“My clarion call to the graduates is to maintain high standards of discipline as well as applying the knowledge acquired during the course for the benefit of the organisation and the country at large,” he said.
Air Marshal Moyo said it was incumbent upon the military to maintain world standard training courses.
