THE Zimbabwe National Army says it is not recruiting new soldiers on Monday.
ZNA Public Relations Director, Lieutenant Colonel Alphios Makotore said the recruitment messages on social media were false.
“As from Friday 10 March 2017, there were false social media notices to the effect that there will be a mass recruitment of the Zimbabwe National Army recruits throughout the country. The army wishes to categorically emphasise that there is no such recruitment taking place. The ZNA would like to advise the public that it does not have recruitment agents and does not recruit through the social media,” said Lt Colonel Makotore.
“All ZNA recruitment programmes are advertised in the mainstream print and electronic media. Prospective applicants then respond through written applications after which selections are then carried out at the different military cantonments throughout all the country’s provinces.”
Lt Col Makotore said the criminal elements masquerading as recruitment agents are in no way representing the ZNA or any of its members.
“The ZNA would like to warn members of the public that these notices are fake and false, hence, they must be dismissed with the contempt they deserve,” he said.
