ZANU PF Mash Central Province Says NO To Presidential Age Limit Proposal

ZANU PF Mashonaland Central province has broken ranks with other party organs that have called for the raising of the presidential age limit. A Newsday Source said

We rejected that proposal. It does not help our situation that we want to show the world we want to open up the democratic space, yet the party turns around and seeks legal instruments to shut a section of the populace out of the same.

ZANU PF youth league leader Godfrey Tsenengamu wrote on Facebook

Political maturity has nothing to do with age. Personally, am against the amendment. I oppose it. It is not necessary.

However, provincial Chairperson Kazembe Kazembe said

The issue was brought up for discussion, but no resolution was made, because some were against the proposal, while others supported it. It came from our districts.

According to the Constitution of Zimbabwe, Section 91, a person qualifies for election as President or Vice-President if he or she is a Zimbabwean citizen by birth or descent, has attained the age of 40, is ordinarily resident in Zimbabwe, and is registered as a voter.

The ZANU PF Women’s League, Youth League and War Veterans have all supported the controversial move though Deputy Minister for Information and Broadcasting Services Energy Mutodi said that President Emmerson Mnangagwa does not support the position.

  1. There is no true war veteran who will support such stupid. These warvets needs to be vetted. If you’re 65 and below are you say you’re a warvets right questions must be asked. When did you join the CDE? When were you trained? ZANU PF is full of criminals and they cannot be trusted. How will someone below the age of 50 support such thinking? Only shameless gutless cowards bootlickers support such stupidity. Is it jealous or its just an African default setting of believing in ancestors. What can ED offer?
