Major General complains money allocated to army is not enough. Says they require $554,56 million

Giving oral evidence before the Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Defence and Security in Harare yesterday, Chief of Staff Administration, Major General Douglas Nyikayaramba, said the money allocated to the Zimbabwe National Army was not enough.

He said,

The Defence budget we were allocated is too paltry compared to what we need and this is mainly because as a nation, we continue to ignore critical issues that will bring stability and confidence to investors who would want to bring their business to this country.

Maj Gen Nyikayaramba said under normal circumstances, the Zimbabwe National Army required $554,56 million, enough to cater for all logistical, administrative and training needs of the army and ensuring that members were properly catered for. He said this helped to boost the troops’ morale, dedication and loyalty.
