Over the past few years there has been much hype over the “Grand Coalition” of opposition parties in Zimbabwe.

This idea has raised the political libido of those in the opposition but will the coalition yield any threat to a seasoned political outfit like Zanu PF, arguably one of the strongest political parties in the world?

Given that in 2013 elections, the opposition garnered a total of 45 percent of the vote, what then changes their matrix? Is this not a sign of desperation, given that the opposition has nothing to offer except that Mugabe must go?  Would the people of Zimbabwe overwhelmingly vote for an opposition coalition, simply on the basis that Mugabe must go? Is this not a fallacy?
