By Staff Reporter| The Zimbabwe Electoral Commission says 60% of total voters are 40 years and below.

MDC leader Nelson Chamisa is 40 years old while his opponent, Emmerson Mnangagwa is 75 years old. Analysts say age and an outcry for generational renewal could be the deciding factor in elections than anything else this year.

Justice Priscilla Chigumba said, “about 60 percent of our people who registered to vote are aged between 18 and 40. It means this is a vote of young people.”

Her statement comes as Zimbabwe prepares for the upcoming 2018 elections which is Emmerson Mnangagwa’s first ever election as outgoing head of state.

The former ZANU PF Chairman Temba Mliswa said Mnangagwa’s must party must wake up and appoint their own youth to leadership so to upstage Chamisa.

Another analyst, the former ZANU PF core strategist, Prof Jonathan Moyo wrote saying, “#GENERATION40 is a #demographic & not a #political group. A demographic group is a section of the population. As such, #G40 permeates the full spectrum of the political divide. So, 2018 is UNDOUBTEDLY a huge #G40 election!”
