Changes  in  the  structure  of  FARM  PROTECTION  Units / HQs  begin  of  1979.

Area  HQ  A-3  MTOKO  and  Area  HQ  A-4  Marandellas  became independent structures during begin of 1979 and acted as Regional HQs, reporting direct to Guard Force HQ but remaining under the operational Control of their respective Sub-JOCs . Area HQ A-3 Mtoko became RHQ  “ F “ MTOKO  and Area HQ “ A-4 “ Marandellas became  RHQ  “ M “ MARANDELLAS .  AHQs A-3 and A-4 were controlled by the RHQ A in Bindura which was too far away and created problems iro Command and Control.
