Regular Officer and Cadets Medical Cadets are being sought. It is not clear how many people are to be recruited countrywide.

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!

"The army, air force and police are always first to get paid their salaries and bonuses, got the best equipment and vehicles compared to schools and hospitals.
