He called for collaboration within the armed forces to achieve optimal results for the country and its citizens.

President Hichilema expressed satisfaction with the progress made, noting the graduation of Police Officers during the intake.

He stated the need for inclusive utilization of government facilities across security wings, ensuring that taxpayer funds were maximized for the benefit of all.

“Government has invested in facilities which are not exclusive to one security wing but for all unless in terms of technical aspect. When one security wing is not utilizing such, let them allow others to use them as it is tax payers money used to procure such,” Hichilema stated.
