Eleven Zimbabweans who are above 120 years of age are set to vote in the country’s upcoming elections and would be joined in the mass process by 130 more centenarians aged between 111 and 120 years of age.
The startling statistics were released Thursday by the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) which added that 3 112 more people who are between 101 and 110 are among those registered to vote.
“Data analysis done for registrants aged over 100years as shown below: 101-110 years – 3112 people, 111-120 years – 130 people, over 120 years – 11 people,” ZEC said.
According to ZEC, of the 11 above 120s registered to vote, 7 are female while 4 are male.
Also, among the 130 who fall within the age range of 101 and 110, a total 87 of them are female while 43 are male.
Of those who fall within the 101 and 110 age bracket, 2 093 are female while 1 019 are male.
The country is set to hold by-elections March 26 to fill up dozens of parliamentary and council seats which were rendered vacant following several recalls by the opposition MDC-T and death.
The by-elections are expected to set the tone for the 2023 harmonised elections.
