Zimbabwe

58 members of the Zimbabwe National Army were commissioned on Saturday following the successful completion of their basic officers military training at the Zimbabwe Military Academy in Gweru. These officers, having endured a rigorous 18-week training course, are now equipped to assume their roles within the military.

They have been urged to uphold professionalism in their duties, adhering closely to the principles outlined in the country’s constitution. Addressing the graduates, ZNA Commander Lieutenant General Ansleme Sanyatwe emphasized the importance of their skills in fulfilling the ZNA’s constitutional obligations and contributing to the nation’s vision. He underscored the ethos of service and sacrifice, reminding them, “National interests come first before self-interests.”

Parents and guardians of the graduating officers expressed their pride and relief at their loved ones’ achievements, acknowledging the challenges and risks associated with military training.

“This is a significant day for us as we celebrate our child’s remarkable accomplishment. Enrolling in the army is a serious decision with its inherent dangers during training. We are immensely relieved and proud,” said one parent.

Another added, “Today marks a major milestone for our family. We have invested in our child’s education all along, and now we celebrate as we await the fruits of our investment.”

The 31st basic officer’s military graduation ceremony saw 48 male and 10 female graduates, with two recruits unable to complete the course due to various reasons.
