I have no appetite for a third term in office- Mnangagwa

By Staff Writer

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has said he will not be running for a third term in office against the dictates of the Zimbabwean Constitution.

Mnangagwa who is currently serving his second and final term was offered another term by the ruling Zanu PF with the slogan “2030 VaMnangagwa vanenge vachipo” becoming popular at party events.

In an interview with local magazine “Brick by Brick”, Mnangagwa said he will not be contesting in the next election.

“There is not an iota of evidence where Zanu PF or I, as President, has ever expressed the violation of our Constitution,” said Mnangagwa.

“But we allow people to dream properly or widely.

“They will still wake up and find things are working and the Constitution hasn’t changed.”

He said Zimbabweans talking about his third term were imaginative “Which shows there is democracy in the country, you see… in Zanu PF are very democratic and we obey the constitution.”

Mnangagwa took over from the late longtime ruler, Robert Mugabe in a military coup.

He won the previous two elections which the opposition claims were rigged and unfair.
