After joining the military in 2012, Muwamba was selected to be part of a Zambian Air Forces program to train female pilots to bridge the gender gap in the field.

“Men are not a competition but counterparts that one should work with, and hence women should begin to participate and realize their abilities,” Muwamba told the Times of Zambia last week. “Because of this understanding, I am ready to undertake this task ahead of me.
