The Zambian government said on Wednesday that it is in the process of procuring modern equipment for its defense forces.

Davies Chama, Minister of Defense, said the move was being done in order to keep the country’s defense abreast with modern developing trends in ground and air warfare capabilities.

The Zambian minister was speaking upon arrival in South Africa for that country’s Armed Forces Day on invitation from his South African counterpart, according to a release from the Zambia embassy in South Africa.

He further said defense personnel were being trained in various operations depending on threat analysis, adding that Zambia was collaborating with other countries in the region to ensure peace in the region.

Meanwhile the Zambian minister said the country has deployed about 800 soldiers and military observers in different parts of Africa and beyond for peace missions.

He said the soldiers have been deployed on a rotational basis as requested by the United Nations. Enditem
