THE Zanu PF Youth League has said President Robert Mugabe is still 'physically and mentally fit' that he can still go on as Zimbabwe's leader until 2023.

According to, the ruling party's youth wing's secretary Kudzanayi Chipanga said this while addressing journalists in Harare Thursday.

"He (Mugabe) can even go up to 2023, but when he then feels that he needs to step down due to various reasons, yes we have given him that leverage as the party to guide the party when it comes to choosing his own successor..," said Chipanga.

He claimed that there were no signs that Mugabe was already incapacitated.

"Our president is still strong as you can see him addressing his party supporters for more than an hour when a need arises. He is still fit to execute his duties. Mentally and physically he is switched on," said Chipanga.

He went on, "Come 2018 elections we have a candidate and he is President Robert Mugabe."
