The Thokozani Khupe-led MDC-T has castigated the call made the War Veteran secretary general Victor Matemadanda that the Presidential age limit should be raised from 40 years to 52 years.
It is generally believed that all war veterans are now at least 52 years old. MDC-T spokesperson Linda Masarira said the war veterans are being unreasonable and motivated by greed and selfishness. In an interview with Newsday, she said
Youth constitute 64% of the population and have every right to participate in governance issues for their posterity. War vets went to the liberation struggle to fight for majority rule, land and freedom from the colonisers for all Zimbabweans and not themselves. As such, we implore them to stop being unreasonable, greedy and selfish. No one is more Zimbabwean than the other.
