Minister of Defence, Davies Chama, has commended the Zambia Air Force – ZAF – for their contributions towards the transformation of Zambia into a prosperous middle-income country in line with the Vision 2030.
Mr. Chama has also commended ZAF for complimenting government’s efforts in creating resilient and diversified economy based on inclusive multi-sector planning.
The Minister says government takes recognisance of the contribution that ZAF has made in maintaining peace and stability in the country, which he says has created an enabling environment for social and economic development.
And Mr. Chama has urged the newly commissioned Zambia Air Force officers to uphold and protect the law.
He says military personnel should always conduct themselves as beacons of uprightness in the community they are called to serve.
The Minister said this in Livingstone during a ZAF ball for officers, who were commissioned on Friday by President Edgar Lungu.
