The Zimbabwe National Army (ZNA) has reaffirmed its commitment to continue safeguarding the gains of the liberation struggle through effective training of officers to ensure peace and stability is upheld in the country.

Zimbabwe celebrates forty years of independence this year, commemorated under notable strides recorded across many sectors, with one of the major achievements being the peace and stability prevailing in the country.

Speaking at the handover and takeover ceremony of commanding officers of Mounted Regiment in Mashonaland West this Friday, Brigadier General, General Staff, Brigadier General Steven Gwekwerere said the Zimbabwe National Army has committed to maintaining peace and stability in the country through training of a highly mobile and hard-hitting force that is capable of safeguarding the nation’s sovereignty.

Outgoing Commanding Officer Mounted Regiment, Lieutenant Colonel Christopher Mugwagwa expressed gratitude to the support he was rendered by various staff branches during his tenure, while his incoming colleague Lieutenant Colonel Dierich Chikwature pledged to uphold the standards of the Unit which he is taking over.

The Zimbabwe National Army stands tall forty years after the country attained its independence as it has been an important pillar in maintaining national and regional political stability.
