Robert Mugabe, 93, will stand for election in Zimbabwe AGAIN in 2018

Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe was confirmed as his party's sole candidate for the next presidential election in 2018, when he will be 94.

Mugabe, the only ruler that the southern African nation has known since independence from Britain in 1980, has come under pressure from a deteriorating economy, corruption and cash shortages that have seen the central bank introducing a new 'bond note' currency in November.

There are two camps vying to succeed Mugabe, with one with faction supporting Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa while another backs first lady Grace Mugabe.

In one of its resolutions, the ZANU-PF Youth League said presidential term limits should be abolished and Mugabe should be declared life president.

Under the constitution adopted in 2013, Mugabe can only serve one final term.
