Zambia Air Force -ZAF- Commander Colin Barry says his command will continue setting up provincial Air Defence Centers to enhance monitoring of the country’s airspace.
Lieutenant General Barry says the Air Force wants to establish its presence in all the 10 provinces not only to receive feedback on air aspects but also enhance the welfare of the regions.
He says the Air Force will continue to uphold the territorial integrity of the country’s airspace to keep the Zambian people safe.
The ZAF Commander was speaking in Solwezi today when he called on acting Northwestern province Permanent Secretary Beatrice Muyambango.
Lieutenant General Barry, who is on his first familiarization tour of the province following his appointment as ZAF commander, said the Air Force will continue offering Air services in times of emergencies whenever called upon.
And Ms. Muyambango commended the ZAF commander for inspiring young people in the province to be disciplined and aim high in life.
She said young people lack role models to help shape their behavior hence the high rate of juvenile delinquencies in society today.
