Buhera South legislator and Zanu-PF politician Joseph Chinotimba has said that he is going to introduce a motion in Parliament which will increase the age limits for presidential candidates. Chinamasa denied that he was doing this to prevent MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa, who turned 40 this year, from running for the next 15 year. Zanu-PF has a supermajority of more than two-thirds of the parliamentary seats, as a result, it can amend the Constitution which came into effect in 2013. Speaking to the Daily News, Chinotimba said,

I want the presidential age limit to change from 40 years to 55 or 60 years. I am going to introduce this motion in Parliament. This is because some of the presidential candidates are very young; they are not yet mature to lead this nation. We want people who know the history of this country, people who are responsible for their actions. I am not going to do this for Chamisa but I think it’s very important for our country.

    I agree with Cde Chinotimba.Maturity in such a high position as President is paramount. It should also be extended to all areas of political leadership.

Secondly we will call for retirement age to be the same for every civil servant. You know 80% of you will be jobless by end 2018.
