MDC Women Tell Off ZANU PF War Veterans On Chamisa’s Age

This Tuesday afternoon, the Zimbabwe National Liberation War Veterans Association (ZNLWVA) held a press conference and announced that they seek to raise the Presidential age limit from 40 to 52 years.

As MDC Alliance Assembly of Women Chairperson, I view the above statement as an attack on democracy which the war veterans claim they fought for.

The plan is very clear: they want to stifle democracy. Age should never be a factor when it comes to Presidency and any attempt to try and subvert the will of the people must be resisted at all cost.

Choice of who to vote for is a Human Right enshrined in our Constitution, thus we will defend and protect it.

No one has the right whatsoever to change the Presidential age limit.

I do not only condemn the press statement and the utterances by the war veterans. The idea must be condemned and dismissed with the contempt it derserves

Women in the MDC ALLIANCE stand by Advocate Nelson Chamisa as leader of the MDC ALLIANCE and any attempt to change that through undemocratic means is a slap in the face of democracy.
