Opposition MPs are warming up to possible unity with disgruntled Zanu PF MPs in a move aimed at impeaching President Robert Mugabe who they argue is now incapacitated and unable to continue at the helm given his advanced age and ill-health.

The move, according to MPs interviewed yesterday, was now necessary particularly coming after Mugabe fell at Harare International Airport upon arrival from Addis Ababa where he was made Africa Union chairman, News Day reported on Saturday.

“I do believe we have maintained that State House is not an old people’s home and we should find other places to accommodate him and if Parliament is toothless in that regard, someone can approach the High Court to seek that Mugabe be checked medically if he is still fit to be on the job,” said MDC Renewal Team spokesperson Jacob Mafume.

“We see now there has been lapse in concentration on his part and we should understand that old age is illness humanity can’t cure.”
