Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe has vowed to stand for election again after the country’s ruling party confirmed they will endorse the 92-year- old leader.
The secretary for administration of the ZANU-PF party, Ignatius Chombo said Wednesday that Mugabe will get the endorsement at the party’s annual conference this week.
Chombo says Mugabe brings ‘wisdom and unity’ to his leadership of Zimbabwe, which is struggling with a dire economic situation that has prompted periodic protests against the government, Daily Mail reports.
Mugabe has previously said he will rule until he dies, but said he is open to retirement if asked by his party.
He has ruled Zimbabwe since independence in the 1980.
