Addressing journalists in Harare yesterday, Zanu-PF Youth Secretary Kudzai Chipanga said that as the youth league they supported the call by Women League Secretary Grace Mugabe for President Robert Mugabe to name his successor.
We support more than 100 percent the call by the First Lady for the President to appoint or to even give guidance as far as the processes are concerned to choose his possible successor when the time comes, but we are not stampeding His Excellency to choose a successor. He can even go up to 2023, but when he then feels that he needs to step down due to various reasons, yes we have given him that leverage to guide the party when it comes to choosing his own successor. We as the Youth League we are close to our Women’s League. We move in tandem, both of us are party wings. You have even heard a slogan where we say “pane mwana ndopana amai” meaning we are one.”
He however said as the Youth League they do not have a preferred candidate.
