MDC Is Gone For Good - Prof Jonathan Moyo
Political Professor, Jonathan Moyo, has said numerous splits over the years weakened the opposition MDC to the extent that it cannot unseat the ruling ZANU PF on its own.
Posting on microblogging site, Twitter, this on Christmas Eve, the exiled former Information minister was discussing the possibility of government change in Zimbabwe.
He said the security sector can effect a change adding that it was impossible for an opposition political party to effect a “transformational change of government.” Moyo said:
Although a TRANSITIONAL change of government in Zimbabwe led by the deep state (key serving & retired securocrats ans bureaucrats) can and might indeed occur at anytime, a TRANSFORMATIONAL change of government by an opposition political party cannot occur without a ZANU PF role.
Others disagreed with the former Tsholotsho legislator saying while it is difficult, an organised MDC Alliance can definitely win and govern without ZANU PF. Moyo responded:

Ok, it’s your right to disagree and I respect that. But there are too many lessons in history which show that when a major political party has three major splits within 15 years; in 2005, 2014 and 2020; it is gone for good. No amount of wishful or cultic thinking can save it!
Moyo who recently withdrew his offer to train MDC Alliance polling agents is at crossroads with MDC supporters and sympathisers after he ‘advised’ MDC Alliance leader Nelson Chamisa on how to use the US$120 000 donated by supporters for buying an armoured vehicle.
Moyo suggested that the former ICT Minister must use the money to capacitate polling agents and buy an office.
