General Officer Commanding (GOC) the SA Army Infantry Formation, Major General Patrick Njabulo Dube, is doing the rounds with his most recent stop being Limpopo to call on units deployed at the provincial joint tactical headquarters.
Apart from intelligence gathering on the border protection tasking Operation Corona, the two-star and his formation staff followed up on issues raised last year when CArmy Lieutenant General Lawrence Mbatha visited.
During his call on Reserve Force unit Mapungubwe Regiment, the part-time soldiers expressed concern at the limited number of slots available to them on courses and the lack of promotion. Dube told the troops the Infantry Formation was “doing its best to ensure career management becomes a priority”.
“These challenges are being addressed at headquarters and the results will be members on course and promoted.”
Other stops on his tour were Musina base (9 SA Infantry Battalion), Thohoyandou (15 SA Infantry Battalion) and Phalaborwa (7 SA Infantry Battalion). Speaking after the visit Dube said it was “constructive with objectives reached”.
