    Morgan Tsvangirai’s party has plummeted in popularity
    AFRICANGLOBE – A grand coalition to unseat President Robert Mugabe is failing to materialise because some political leaders are pushing for self-serving agendas rather than national interest, analysts have noted.
    They said if major political parties had united in the 2008 election, Mugabe would have been voted out of office to usher Zimbabwe into a new and progressive political dispensation.
    During the elections, MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai got 47% votes and Simba Makoni of Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn polled 8%.
    If Tsvangirai and Makoni had come together, they would have easily defeated Mugabe who got 43% and avoided a run-off.
    Analysts said Mugabe, who has been ruling the country for over three decades, could prevail in the July 31 harmonised elections if leaders of major political parties in the country remained divided and continued to pursue self-fulfilling agendas.
    Attempts by the MDC-T, MDC, Zapu, Zanu Ndonga and Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn to form a coalition against Zanu PF in the past few months have failed amid accusations and counter accusations.
    This has resulted in two coalitions being formed along ethnic and regional lines.
