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.
