  • Tsvangirai cannot have it both ways; he must either admit that the elections were free and fair and he lost to President Mugabe because the opposition was divided. Or maintain what he said after the election that Zanu PF rigged the vote.

    If the 2013 elections were free and fair then his MDC Alliance would not change anything since Mugabe won 62% of the vote. Zanu PF is set to repeat the same thing next year.

    If the 2013 elections were rigged, which is supported by the evidence on the ground, then a united opposition is not going to change much because it is stopping the vote rigging that is the main task here.

    MDC have accepted that Zanu PF will rig the elections and they are quite happy getting the few seats the regime gives away to entice the opposition to contest the elections regardless how flawed the process.

    Tsvangirai and company had the best chance ever to implement the democratic reforms during the GNU and they have given up bring about any democratic change.
