South African opposition leader and founding leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) party Julius Malema has called on President Emmerson Mnangagwa to serve only one term as president saying that he is too old. Malema who was one of the first people to sent a congratulatory message to Mnangagwa after he was declared the winner of the presidential election by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (Zec) said,
We call upon President Mnangagwa to serve one term, he’s too old. We hope President Mnangagwa will not want to go for the second term. Let Zanu PF begin a process of producing younger people who will compete with Chamisa. President Mnangagwa this is a brotherly advice, a son’s call that says one term is enough, you are too old, let the younger generation take over.
