PRESIDENT Emmerson Mnangagwa has promoted six senior Zimbabwe Defence Force officers to various ranks, with the newly elevated senior military officers being implored to serve the nation with integrity.

Speaking at the investiture ceremony in Harare this Friday, Commander Zimbabwe Defence Forces, General Phillip Valerio Sibanda implored the promoted army senior officers to serve the nation with integrity and a positive mindset.

“I would like to start by congratulating you all for the promotion. I would also want you to continue serving the nation in that positive mindset even after retirement. Now that you are in another set-up, let this leverage you during your duties. Continue to work hard and motivate junior ranks as well,” he said.

Speaking on behalf of the newly promoted officers, Air Chief Marshal Elson Moyo expressed gratitude for the recognition, pledging continued loyalty to the nation.

“For all of us, that was not possible without your presence. We are filled with gratefulness, gratitude, and honour. We are geared to continue to save our country diligently. We promise the Commander-in-Chief, His Excellence President Emmerson Mnangagwa, and the nation at large that we shall deliver,” he said.

President Mnangagwa promoted the senior army officers in terms of the Defence Act, which empowers him, in consultation with the Minister of Defence and Commander Zimbabwe Defence Forces, to reward any member for distinguished service or gallant conduct
