Kuala Lumpur – After 42 years of service, the Army’s Inspector-General Major-Gen Datuk Zulkiflee Mazlan bade farewell to life in the uniform.
Zulkiflee, who turned 60 on Dec 9, was given a rousing send-off during a parade in his honour as the Royal Signals Corps chairman at Dataran Perdana of the Sungai Besi camp, today.
Present were Army chief Gen Tan Sri Raja Mohamed Affandi Raja Mohamed Noor and the Army’s Chief Signals Officer Brig Gen Datuk Ahmad Hadiatullah Maknun.
Zulkiflee, who had previously served as the Armed Forces Veterans Affairs Department director-general for nearly a decade, scored a rare distinction with his late father Brig Gen Mazlan Yunus as the only father-and-son to have graduated from Britain’s prestigious Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
Prior to that, Zulkiflee, who hails from Muar, Johor attended the Royal Military College before being commissioned in 1974 as a second-lieutenant.
Zulkiflee is a law graduate from Universiti Teknologi Mara and holds a Masters degree in National Security Strategy from the National Defence University, Fort J. McNair in Washington D.C. the United States. – New Straits Times
