Nothing Wrong With War Veterans’ Call To Raise Presidential Age Limit- Zanu-PF Youth League Boss

Speaking on Twitter, Zanu-PF Gutu South legislator. Pupurai Togarepi said there is nothing wrong with the motion moved by war veterans to have the ruling party use its majority in Parliament to raise the minimum age for presidential aspirants from the current 40 years to 52.

Togarepi who is also the leader of the Zanu-PF Youth League said the Zimbabwe Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) is entitled to freedom of speech. He said the Youth League is guided by Zimbabwe’s Constitution regarding the age limit of presidential aspirants. He said if there is need for the age limit to be changed the issue will be decided in Parliament. Said Togarepi:

Freedom of speech is a right to every Zimbabwean and that include individuals or groups. As regards to the view of the Youth League to the proposed age limit for Presidential hopefuls the Constitution of Zimbabwe guides us.

I am sure you know who talked about age, upper and lower limits but these are reactions in politics. The Constitution has already provided for this issue. Should there be a real need for either of the views again political parties will decide in Parliament. So bhora pasi!!

I don’t see anything wrong in proposing a position regarding age limits unless war veterans are not entitled to their opinion. When some in the opposition suggested an upper limit it was accepted by some on this platform who are crying the loudest today. Hypocrisy isn’t it
