| The Malawi Defence Forces (MDF) Commander Mark Chiziko on Friday assured the nation that his team will remain a professional defence force that serves the government of the day with honesty and dedication.|
Chiziko was speaking during the annual end-of-the-year party at Kamuzu Barracks Officers’ Mess in Lilongwe which normally takes place on December 31.
“We will continue to serve the government of the day with honesty and total dedication. We shall do so mindful of the fact that we are custodians of peace on whom the public look up to for assistance when things go wrong.
“We shall do everything possible to serve and enhance the confidence that the citizens of this country have in us,” said Chiziko.
He also commended his officers “for the diligent manner in which they conducted themselves throughout the year be it in Malawi or outside”.
“Your professional attitude and discipline continue to be the envy of many people. If the soldiers outside there are disciplined, it is because the Officer Corps has continued to remain professional by being apolitical, loyal and hardworking,” said Chiziko.
Among other things, the annual event which started with prayers run from 6 pm on Friday to 6 am on Saturday included a dinner and dance, braii and traditional dances by the National Dance Troupe and other groups. There was also a disco.
"It's shameful that the UDF party wants to take us back to the dark days,"
Mr Gwanda Chakuamba (2003)
