Opposition parties need to unite

EDITOR — With the 2018 elections gathering momentum, Zimbabweans can only win against Zanu PF if the opposition parties unite and work together for the betterment of our country.

Leaders of the opposition parties should put their differences aside and work together for a better Zimbabwe.

From media reports, there seems to be some issues regarding leadership of this grand coalition.

I have noted that since the talk about a grand coalition was mooted, there have been some opposition leaders who are saying that they cannot be led by so and so or will stand it alone.

I think the only hope for the oppositions is for all parties to come  together and make sure that they win the elections so that Zimbabwe is restored back to its glory.

As Zimbabweans, we do not care who leads the grand coalition but all we want is for things to improve in our country.

I know that within these opposition parties there are many leaders who are capable of taking this country to new heights such as the MDC led by Morgan Tsvangirai, MDC faction leader Welshman Ncube, Zimbabwe People First Joice Mujuru, Dumiso Dabengwa of Zapu,  Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn’s Simba Makoni to mention a few.

Looking at the way our economy of this country is going, I believe it will be better for these parties to come together and then form a coalition government instead of fighting and splitting votes.

As long as the opposition parties focus on their differences they will never win any election in this country.

They should instead focus on their strengths and take advantage of the frustrated Zimbabweans who are suffering just because there are no jobs and most of them are even failing to put three meals on the table.

The opposition parties should also take advantage of the disgruntled young people who are educated and unemployed to make their case strong to the electorate.

My plea is just that opposition leaders must put their differences and pride aside and concentrate on bringing Zimbabwe back to those good old days when jobs were plenty, farms were productive and people did not have to leave this country to seek greener pastures elsewhere.

United, the opposition can stand but divided they will definitely fall.

Leadership change is now not the theme but sound economic, social and political reforms in the hands of responsible, accountable and respectable people not person.
