Zimbabwe: Army Gets Business Support

The Zimbabwe National Army has hailed the corporate world for supporting its initiatives to promote peace and development. ZNA commander Lieutenant General Philip Sibanda said no business could thrive in an environment of wars and turmoil. He was speaking at the Belated Executive Interaction Initiative Thanks Giving Dinner held last Friday in Harare. The initiative was aimed at improving interactions between the ZNA and corporate entities.

Lt Gen Sibanda said it was good to see business and the military working together for the betterment of the economy.

"This is where our roles complement each other and although our services are mostly intangible they are crucial for the creation and maintenance of conditions which are conducive for business to thrive," he said.

"This gathering here tonight speaks well of the good work that has gone into fulfilling the initiative's objective of getting the military and business to work closely together for the benefit of our country."

A national organising committee made up of senior military and civilian personnel manages the initiative.
