ZANU PF Youth League Elections Stopped As All Candidates Were Over Age

ZANU PF Youth League Elections Stopped As All Candidates Were Over Age

ZANU PF was last week forced to stop its youth league elections in Matabeleland North province after it emerged all the candidates vying for seats were over 35 years of age.

According to party rules, no candidate over the age of 35 can contest for a youth league post at any level.

Zanu PF held its provincial elections across the country last week.

It has emerged some ZANU PF members in Matabeleland North defied the party’s rules and submitted their CVs to contest for several posts in the youth league hoping the anomaly would not be noticed.

However, they were blocked from contesting at the last minute after it turned out all potential candidates were over the age of 35.

The provincial youth league elections have since been deferred to a later date.

Meanwhile, the ZANU PF Politburo is expected to meet in Harare this week to confirm winners and resolve any complaints filed by disgruntled losing candidates.

Among candidates who have filed complaints are Godfrey Gomwe who was defeated by Goodwills Masimirembwa for the Harare provincial chairperson post, and Tafadzwa Musarara who lost to Home Affairs Minister Kazembe Kazembe in Mashonaland Central province.

In Bulawayo province, former war veterans leader Jabulani Sibanda bounced back as Zanu PF provincial chairperson.

It seems like the tradition of cheating in ZANU PF has conquered even the small boys to an extent of cheating themselves of their age. If someone relies on cheating always, it's not surprising that one day when one can't find someone to cheat, one cheat oneself.

They were disqualified for using authentic dates of birth instead of the usual fake ones. Remember in Zanu pf you can remain a youth forever as long as you follow protocol.
