ZNA numbers to be slashed(01-02-07)

HARARE - The Zimbabwe government, currently reeling under financial problems, has decided to reduce the size of the army by about 40 percent.
Reliable sources within the army have said the army, which currently stands at 35,000 members, will be reduced to 25 000 soldiers as the government tries

to win back the sympathy of the donor community which has abandoned it mainly as a result of its financial indiscipline.
Targeted for retirement are those above the age of 45, the disabled, those with a history of ill health and those who have been with the army for more than 20 years.
Meanwhile the ZNA has deployed in Zimbabwe’s second largest game park, Gonarezhou, to fight armed poachers who have intensified their poaching activities there, endangering the Great Limpopo Transfrontier Park.
Most of the poachers, believed to be from neighbouring Mozambique, are mostly after elephant and rhino whose horns have a lucrative market in Asia.
