This paper attempts to identify the key issues that made the Movement for Democratic Change led by the late Morgan Tsvangirai (MDC-T) a weak political party. Although the time period under discussion largely deals with the GNU years (2009-2013), the lessons are not only relevant to the MDC-T now led by Nelson Chamisa, but also to its countless splinter parties. This analysis identifies twenty-one lessons that have to be addressed in order to revive the opposition and to develop it into a unified front that will be able to effectively compete against Zimbabwe African National Union – Patriotic Front (ZANU-PF).
