Alibuzwi to be honoured by US Army


The Zambia Army Commander, Sitali Alibuzwi, will be inducted into the International Fellows Hall of Fame today, March 2, 2023 at Carlisle Barracks in Pennsylvania, United States of America.

Zambia Army Spokesperson Martin Liyungu said the International Fellows Hall of Fame ceremony is a prestigious event that is held every three years.

Col. Liyungu said the ceremony seeks to honour the United States of America Army War College graduates who have attained the highest positions in the country’s Defence Forces through military merit.

In a press statement issued to ZANIS in Lusaka today, Col. Liyungu noted that the Army Commander will be inducted together with Botswana Defence Force, Ground Force Commander Major General Joseph Seelo.

Col. Liyungu added that the Army Commander is also attending a one-week African Alumni Symposium at the US Army Heritage and Education Centre, where he is joined by former African War College graduates from 20 African nations and US military schools.

He said the symposium is a platform to discuss the development of the next generation of African leadership addressing violent extremism across the continent and building partner capacity to improve security and civilian protection.

And Commanding General of the United States Army’s Southern European Task Force Africa, Major General Todd Wasmund, officially opened the symposium and urged the attendants to take advantage of the opportunity to learn from one another’s approaches to similar challenges.

The United States Army War College prepares Senior Military Officers from all corners of the world for senior leadership assignments and responsibilities by providing graduate-level education.

Former Zambia Army Commander General Isaac Chisuzi (Rtd), Deputy Zambia Army Commander Major General Geoffrey Zyeele, Brigadier General James Mazimba (Rtd), Brigadier General Amos Zimba (Rtd), and Zambia’s Defence Adviser to Ethiopia, Brigadier General Musonda Nthenga, are also graduates of the war college.


  1. This is not good at all. Mr. President wake up and remember Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu wa Zabanga. The USA is turning Africa into Latin America.

  2. We need to be careful how we fit into the geopolitical game. Allowing ourselves to be a pawn in the fight between elephants is really ill advised.
    When crunch time comes, the US will not be there. Then China will remember all these silly ill-advised moves and put the pressure.
    Its always wise to appear neutral, when you are little country. Even if you are pro-west, try not to show it so overtly and brazenly.
