Am not Seeking Third Term – President Mnangagwa

President Emmerson Mnangagwa has stated that he will not seek re-election for a third term, emphasizing that there is no evidence to suggest that he or the ruling party, ZANU PF, have any intention of violating the country’s constitution. President Mnangagwa’s term is set to end in 2028, upon which his party will go to Congress and choose his successor as he takes a well-deserved rest. The President made the announcement yesterday during his address at the commissioning of the Mutare Fruit Juice and Water Processing Plant.

President Mnangagwa affirmed that both the Party and National Constitutions limit him to two terms, and there is no desire to amend these “sacred books” from either side, indicating his commitment to respecting the constitutional term limits.

President Mnangagwa’s statement is a gesture of statesmanship and a commitment to upholding the constitution. By publicly declaring that he will not seek a third term, he demonstrates respect for the rule of law and the democratic process.

#ED The Constitutionalist: He is adhering to the constitutional term limits, showcasing his dedication to the legal framework that governs Zimbabwe.

#ED The Statesman: By putting the country’s interests above personal ambition, he exhibits leadership maturity and a willingness to prioritize the nation’s well-being over personal gain.

#ED The Democrat: His statement promotes democratic principles, such as the peaceful transfer of power and the importance of leadership succession.

In summary, President Mnangagwa’s public announcement puts to rest speculations on the ZANU PF succession politics whose import is to destabilize the ruling party by detractors. ZANU PF’s focus is now on building the economy and uplifting the living standards of the general population.
