A Zimbabwean constitutional court has ruled that President Robert Mugabe is fit to rule the country at 93 after an activist with the Takamuka social movement, Promise Mkwananzi, went to court to seek to prove that Mugabe was unfit to hold office given his advanced age.
The court dismissed the case, stating that court processes were not followed.
However, it said the plaintiff could appeal the decision within 30 days.
Mugabe has been ruling Zimbabwe since its independence.
After the verdict, Promise said;‘‘This is just a convenient excuse for the Constitutional Court to bite the bullet, so we are saying that we are going to reapply within 30 days as prescribed by the rule of the constitutional court and relaunch this issue,’‘
He noted that there was enough evidence to prove that the President lacked the capacity to occupy the office.
