I Will Retire In 2023, At 99 Years Old – Mugabe

By Bright Bassey

Zimbabwean President, Robert Mugabe, says he considers retiring in 2023, but only if he wins the next presidential vote in 2018.

“As long as the party says continue, I continue…If I still have the energy, I still have the life, the blessings of God, I will continue,” said Mugabe in an address.

“We are in a critical time… for regime change.”

92-year-old Mugabe made the statement while speaking to a group of war veterans recently. He admitted the country’s currency is in a poor shape, its banks running out of cash and the country crippled by drought.

Moreover, the ruling party ZanuPF has backed Mugade, saying he would contest in 2018.
