"For instance, we have seen something like the 'Army week'... , building relations between the Army and the Nation. We are all African Defence Forces and it is better and advisable to learn from a brother so that we can see our continent developing together," Gen. Kennedy Tlali Kamoli revealed to the media, shortly after the meetings.
