THE Air Force of Zimbabwe has dismissed a recruitment message circulating on social media as a hoax, saying it does not have such plans at the moment. In a statement yesterday, Director General Operations Air Commodore Innocent Chiganze said the message was meant to fleece desperate job seekers. Some crooks are taking advantage of current economic challenges characterised by high unemployment to fleece desperate job seekers.

“The Air Force of Zimbabwe has been inundated with calls being made by people inquiring on a recruitment exercise message which is circulating on social media. “The message indicates that ‘the AFZ is recruiting Aircraft Technicians, Regiment, Fire Fighters, Nurses, Drivers, Plumbers, Intelligence and Pilots’.

“The message goes on to give academic qualifications required and reveals that more information will be published in The Sunday Mail on February 7, 2016. “The AFZ would like to advise the general public that there is no such recruitment on its plans,” said Air Commodore Chiganze.

“People should ignore this message and report anyone purporting to represent the AFZ in any recruitment exercise,” he said. Air Commodore Chiganze said the AFZ does not advertise through social media platforms.
