The Headquarters 4 Infantry Brigade will this year host all formations of the ZNA and units in the Inaugural pace-stick drill Competitions scheduled for 09-21 October 2016.
Preparations for this event are at an advanced stage. The major objective of the Competitions is to assess the standards of drill, turnout and discipline across all the formations and units of the Zimbabwe National Army.
In an interview with the ZNA magazine reporter the discipline Manager at HQ 4 Infantry Brigade, Brigade Sergeant Major (BSM) Warrant Officer Class One (WOI) Joel Mugore said, "Discipline is the foundation upon which all armies thrive. The benefits of drill are quite numerous to both the organisation and the individual soldier. To the organisation drill enhances team work, unit and uniformity thereby ensuring a disciplined, efficient and effective organisation. To an individual, it stimulates mental alertness in as much as it builds physical fitness".
The participants shall as usual compete in foot drill and arms drill. The Brigade Sergeant Major Warrant Officer Class one (WOI) Joel Mugore has since declared fireworks to the coming participants that, 4 Brigade will definitely win the trophy, no doubt.news
