The promoted Colonels are:

1). Banabas Simbarashe Tera,

3). James Dumezweni Moyo,

4). Passmore Taruodzera,

5). Jabulani Mulambo,

6). Edward Mataga, and

They were conferred with the new ranks by the Chief of Staff General Staff, Major General Kasirai Tazira at an investiture ceremony held at Josiah Magama Tongogara Barracks yesterday.

Standing in for Commander Zimbabwe National Army, Lieutenant General David Sigauke, Maj Gen Tazira commended the senior officers for diligently executing their duties, hence their promotion.

Maj Gen Tazira said the onus was upon the promoted Colonels to diligently and professionally discharge their duties in their new capacities and enhanced status.

On behalf of the promoted Colonels, Colonel Passmore Taruodzera thanked Lieutenant General David Sigauke for giving them “well-deserved recognition,” according to The Herald.

He promised that they were going to remain loyal to both the organisation and the country.

Asilif how are u ? Talking of military Junta like Rugeje when he was at 4 brigade he ruled with an iron fist .He actually managed to turn Masvingo province upside down during 2008.I wonder what happened to him .He seems to be in political wilderness .These ranks are a foundation for putting new horses to the game of political showdown .Nextyear they will perform beyond call if duty to pliz the paymaster.Watch out 2023🔥🔥🔥🔥🇿🇼
