IN response to People First disown Mliswa: With due respect to all opposition parties in Zimbabwe, everybody is entitled to an opinion, but not to hold it as the truth or the only truth.

At the same time, suggesting that for a grand coalition to succeed, it has to be led by a certain individual is both myopic and misplaced to say the least.
At this incubation stage, such a remark is disheartening.
Let all the willing competitors be subjected to a free and fair nomination exercise.
Whoever carries the day should be cleared.
The principle idea is not to oust the government of the day, but to serve the people better.
If one fails to succeed, let him/her respect the will of the majority.
Forming a functional coalition requires people with the ability to formulate and act from a philosophical perspective, not mere self-seekers.
Former Vice-President Joice Mujuru has the support of securocrats, war veterans, rural folk especially from Mashonaland provinces, while MDC-T leader Morgan Tsvangirai has his traditional grassroots mainly in towns, Matabeleland, Manicaland and Masvingo.
Both Mujuru and Tsvangirai should start now to rigorously campaign together in their areas of strength and set structures.
Mujuru should lead the change campaigns with the previous set up of Prime Minister and President.
However, we have to tread very carefully because vultures are on the loose.
The matter of the truth is that the grand coalition needs everyone, Kisinoti Mukwazhi, Egypt Dzinemunhenzva, Welshaman Ncube, Tendai Biti and Elton Mangoma, in fact any democratic force who shares the idea that its high time Zimbabwe be set free from the Zanu PF bondage.
