ZANU-PF has triggered discussions around extending the presidential term for President Emmerson Mnangagwa beyond 2023.

The party youth league led by its acting secretary, Tendai Chirau said it wants to push for constitutional amendments that will  allow President  Mnangagwa to stay in office longer,

“We agreed that it is important that if the constitution of the country can be amended so that he (Mnangagwa) can have more than two terms,” said Chirau.

The constitution allows for two terms in office (10 years) per President and if President Mnangagwa is re-elected in the upcoming 2023 polls, he will not be eligible to contest in the 2028 elections.
Chirau also said that the ZANU-PF youth league is endorsing President Mnangagwa as their 2023 presidential candidate.

“The first thing we discussed and agreed as the executive national youth league is that His Excellency President Emerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa is our sole candidate for the party in 2023 elections because in less than three years he has shown good leadership so we do believe that he should continue,” Chirau said.
