2018 election: Zimbabwe’s ruling party endorses 92-year-old Mugabe

The leader was endorsed by all party structures at the meeting held in Masvingo. The congress voiced “its support to the president and first secretary comrade Robert Mugabe as the sole candidate for the forthcoming 2018 elections,” said deputy secretary Eunice Sandi Moyo.

The endorsement was met with resounding applause from thousands of supporters attending the annual conference, chanting in Shona language “tongai, tongai baba” meaning “rule, rule father.”

Mugabe, 92, has been in power since independence from British colonial rule in 1980 has avoided naming a successor or laying out plans to retire. He once joked that he would rule until he turned 100.
