ZANU PF Youth League elections aborted as all candidates were over age

ZANU PF Youth League elections aborted 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.
