The exercise said to be on this week.

Gwanda resident Association official Bekezela Fuzwayo said recruitment spree was ‘funny' but warned people to be prepared.

 He wrote "Very funny but scary our government is recruiting more soldiers into the army and air force plus more police but retrenching teachers, nurses and doctors!
