Zimbabwe’s Mnangagwa Says He Will Not Seek a 3rd Term

President Emmerson Mnangagwa, who many believe to be planning an unconstitutional third term in office – has once more clarified the issue.

His spokesperson George Charamba, using one of his many X handles, Dhonzamisoro007, wrote: “THE PRESIDENT CLARIFIES THE ISSUE OF TERM LIMITS: Speaking in Shona, the President, Dr ED Mnangagwa, indicated that both the Party and National Constitutions provide for two-term limits.

“In his case, he added, he is now working on his second and last term, and was on his way to taking a deserved rest. When the time comes, added the President, ZANU PF will congregate to elect a new leader. This is what provides for national stability. He also stressed the need for adherence to Party line and Party discipline.”

However, a number of his followers on X called his post “b*llsh*t” saying, why was every party bigwig sloganeering that “2030 VaMnangagwa Vanenge vachitonga”.

It remains to be seen if the 81-year-old Mnangagwa, who will be 85 at the end of his second term in 2025 will stay true to his word. Mnangagwa is a cunning and shrewd politician who knows how to work the system and manipulate the people.
