PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe says he is still seeking answers as to how his Zanu PF party lost ground in Manicaland - but he is sure age and looks had nothing to do with it.

Mugabe is certain that if facial looks - even at his advanced age - had anything to do with it, he would have beaten the MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai hands down.

Tsvangirai, 61, would be embarrassed if the two went on a night out trying their luck with the ladies, he joked on Friday while speaking to traditional leaders and other local government officials in Mutare on Friday.

The Zanu PF leader said he had wondered whether at 84, his necessarily wrinkled appearance put-off voters in the 2008 elections after the party was battered in Manicaland, winning just six out of 26 seats.

But after taking a look at his rival’s face he was convinced the election rout had nothing to do with his own appearance.

“Zvino ndikati chitadzo chingava kupi? Tikamira papapa ndiri 84 ndinotariswa nemvana dzakati kuti,” Mugabe joked, drawing howls of laughter from the delegates.

Tsvangirai and the Zanu PF leader will go head-to-head again later this year in a vote which will end their fractious coalition government.

Despite deep divisions and policy differences the unity administration is however, credited with helping ease political tensions in the country and putting the economy on a path to recovery.
