Zanu-PF secretary for youth affairs Kudzanayi Chipanga gave the biggest hint that the party’s youth league is ready to support Grace Mugabe to be Vice President.
The Zanu-PF youth league endorsed the proposal to hold an extraordinary congress to re-affirm that the First Secretary, President Mugabe is the ruling party’s candidate in next year’s presidential elections, as well as calling for a female Vice President. Chipanga dismissed reports by NewsDay that the youth league is divided on pushing for Grace Mugabe to the post of Vice President at the party’s extraordinary congress. Chipanga said that the youth league is for President Robert Mugabe and the first lady. Said Chipanga:
We also like to appeal to the private media, we have realised that the private media is now working 24 hours in trying to destabilise the Youth League of the party. They are writing a lot of nonsense and negative things about the Youth League. We know that they are being paid for that. They are not happy with the unity which is prevailing in the Youth League. We would like to tell the private media that hands off the Youth League. The Youth League of Zanu-PF, unlike other youth leagues, is revolutionary. It is driven by the people and party constitution. It is the Youth League for President Mugabe and Amai Mugabe and no one else.
