His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Zimbabwe and Commander-In-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Cde Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa has commended efforts made by the uniformed forces of providing equal opportunities for women within their services.

President Mnangagwa made the commendation while he was addressing guests at the prize presentation during the 2018 President’s Medal Shoot at Cleveland Ranges in Harare recently.

The consistent increase in the number of female participants at this event, which is previously the domain of males, is commendable. This is a further reflection of the security forces’ positive response to calls for gender equity, sensitivity and representation in all activities in our nation.

“I urge women to take this sport seriously and challenge them to match their male counterparts in competitions as well as performing the requisite roles of defending our hard won independence and territorial integrity,” he said.

Cde Mnangagwa also commended the security forces for their professionalism in the discharge of international assignments during peacekeeping operations.

“I am proud of the professionalism and high standard of discipline displayed by our uniformed forces which has enabled them to acquit themselves well on international assignments. Your performance in the Southern African Development Community, African Union and United Nations Peacekeeping and Observer Missions has always been matching or surpassing set standards.

“I implore you to continue to improve the good standards that you set. What you have achieved so far should never be compromised or negated through moments of lapse or unpatriotic acts,” said President Mnangagwa.

Meanwhile Private Rangarirai Gotosa of the Zimbabwe National Army 4 Brigade Masvingo was crowned the 2018 President’s Medal shoot champion ahead of ninety two participants who took part from the uniformed forces and civilian clubs. For his effort he walked away with $3000.00 cash, gold medal, President’s Medal Shoot medal, food hamper from National foods and blazer for top shootist from Pacific cigarettes.

The best female shotist was won by the Senior Security Aide in the President’s Department Blessing Mukombwe who won the Mbuya Nehanda trophy.

The Zimbabwe National Sevens Rugby Team has opened doors for Innocent Tendai Nyatsanza (24), who has been part of the ensemble since last year.

Nyatsanza, stationed at Glen Norah Police in Harare is currently part of the camping team preparing for the Sevens Rugby World Cup to be held in San Francisco in the United States of America this July.

For Nyatsanza the dramatic rise has come barely three years after being introduced to the sport while in Depot during his training.

He has gone on to work on his game in a very short space of time to attract the interest of national team coaches something that has given him the urge to work harder.

The Outpost recently spoke to the police rugby talent on the sidelines of the recently ended Commissioner General of Police Sports Gala where he spoke on his journey to stardom.

“I wanted to pursue rugby while at school but our school did not have facilities then and because of my body, many people always encouraged me to take up the sport. I came face to face with the sport when I joined the police in July 2014.

My first week in Depot I met Valentine Nkiwane a renowned police rugby player and asked me if I had played rugby before. I told him I had never played it and he told me that he wanted me to play rugby. From that period he became my coach, mentor and inspiration,” said the former Mandedza High School student.

That was the beginning of his rugby journey which has seen him representing the country.

While in Depot for a year, Nyatsanza played at the Commissioner General’s Sports Gala representing Depot Province and won gold on two occasions. After graduation, he was posted to Harare province and joined the Police Defenders which is in the National Rugby League.

“At Police Defenders, I was introduced to the new concept of rugby, the fifteens rugby after having been introduced to the sevens rugby while in Depot. It took time for me to adjust and spent the better part of the year as a bench warmer.”

But 2017 brought new fortunes for the young man who

The member states which did not send troops are the four island countries; Madagascar, Mauritius, Comoros and Seychelles.

The CPX-Umodzi was based on a simulation of a real peacekeeping mission scenario. It was designed to test the planning, integration, coherence and adherence of SADC SF to the African Union’s Standard Operating Procedures. The three components of the SADC SF comprising of the military, police, and civilian component were put together and different scenarios created to test decision making in a multidimensional peacekeeping operation at a fictitious country, called Kunta in Tandadzi region.

The exercise tested the Operational Level structures of the Mission, validated the actions at Tactical level with the Strategic Framework in the (Exercise Mission) mandate. The exercise had specific structures like the Mission Headquarters, Rapid Deployment Centre serving as the start up force for the African Standby Force (ASF) and the Military, Police and Civilian Headquarters.
