THE Deputy Minister of Defence and War Veterans Victor Matemadanda has said that the Zimbabwe Defence Forces has no adequate accommodation in the barracks that is why some of its members are residing outside the camps.

Matemadanda made the remarks in parliament during senate debate.

"The initial question was that they see soldiers at roadblocks, not in town but I will answer both.  The other part of seeing soldiers in town; we do not have enough accommodation in camps to accommodate soldiers.  We have soldiers in Dzivarasekwa, Budiriro and everywhere and when they go home, they go through town," he said.

"Every country has got its security system and information on threats to the nation is divulged to the JOC and not anyone everywhere but because our Constitution provides that soldiers should help the police; it is actually the police that should complain if they did not invite the soldiers."
