1] Im seriously wondering what could be the KEY lessons learnt from the coalition agreement reached between MT & other fringe parties.

So far it has been political headaches

more so because Morgan himself is nolonger around, leaving his former lieutenants in perpetual fights Image
2] A bit of context

The MDC itself, from its inception, was never meant to be a conventional political party, in the modern sense

Rather, a coalition MOVEMENT, bringing different constituencies

These were labour, farmers, lawyers, religion, warverts, women, youth etc
3] However, with time, some coalition partners started experiencing internal fractures

Some simply become disillusioned

Some sought new allegiance elsewhere

ZanuPF itself began infiltrating the movement

Eventually, the core leadership of this movement itself began splitting Image

1] As the MDC circus continues...

....Our politics has too many lawyers, such that some basic political conversations & developments become difficult to comprehend & discern, respectively, for the random layman, as politicians hide behind Latin legal jargons.

2] In simpler terms...

@DMwonzora, who lost a chance to contest @nelsonchamisa for the @mdczimbabwe Presidency, convinced #DrKhupe that she was actually the Acting President of her own #MDC_T party which elected her uncontested in Bulawayo.

And she fell for it

3] What Dougie did, is actually akin to convincing someone that he actually is just his own wife's boyfriend, because of some love letter from the 80s.

This is besides the fact that the two are married.

Dougie even had Khupe making some hilarious DA comparisons

1] As citizens wait patiently for the #HighCourt ruling on the matter regarding #MDC_T's parenthood of the #MDC_A, i fail to see how the judgement changes anything really.

This is because the #MDC_A is now a political party.
Something which a court can neither confirm nor deny.
2] The crux of this matter is more #political than it is #legal.

Though #Mwonzora & team were arguing today that the #MDC_A was an #electoral pact which merely now exists as some faction of the #MDC, only a week ago, he had people recalled for joining a party called "#MDC_A".
3] Although #Mwonzora was argues the MDC-A is a 2018 coalition, which ceased to exist post elections, nothing suggest the "individual parties" continued existing as such.

For post 2018 bi-elections,what strategy was used to choose candidates if the parties remained autonomous?
