Politics is not for the faint-hearted as it needs someone who has the requisite stamina to captivate the electorate without insulting anyone. It is a game for the politically-astute and shrewd strategists. If MDC Alliance presidential candidate, Nelson Chamisa, was to be put to the political litmus test, he would obviously fail. For some people, whatever they touch turns to gold, but for Chamisa, he is starring at an electoral defeat. An analysis of the way he has handled politics since his days as the MDC-T organising secretary, gives an indication of his deficient political mettle and, by extension, how he is likely to fare on 30 July.
