ZAMBIA AIR FORCE
The Commander -In- Chief
ONE ZAMBIA, ONE NATION.
Fellow Citizens, Country Men and Women, it is my humble gratitude to remind you about the significance of Peace. The Zambia Air Force's Strategic objective is to Defend and Support our Nation as mandated through the Constitution of the Republic of Zambia. Zambia Cherishes Peace, therefore, the projection of 'Military Might' as an instrument of policy is conducted in order to sustain and maintain peace, which is very vital for Political Stability and Sovereignty for the Emancipation of the much needed Economic and Social development of our Country. As a Nation at peace, we have the power to act in our own interest/values which includes the pursuit of political, economic, ideological or cultural objectives. To the Officers, Airmen and Airwomen of the Zambia Air Force, your role remains to ensure that our Country is in a continous state of peace. As your Commander-in-Chief, i urge all citizens to remain united and patriotic as we endeaver to uplift the living standards through economic recovery, sustainable debt management and investment strategies which bring meaningful value to our people. May God bless Zambia.
