Our goal and primary success factor is to enable the campusM mobile application to become an effective information and transactional hub for all of our 160,000 students, said Frederik Creugers, Associate Vice Provost of Enterprise Business Solutions at MDC
. We decided early on that we expected the mobile app project to be multiphased, where we would roll out new and improved functionality on a continual basis.
The MDC, in contrast, enjoys backing from many foreign actors in the region and from overseas.
First, its reputation has suffered critical blows from a range of personal lapses by its leader--the numerous sexual adventures of Tsvangirai, including the pregnancy of a 23-year-old woman and his denial of paternity; reports of growing corruption and financial mismanagement within the MDC headquarters; and Tsvangirai's refusal to accept criticism of his leadership style.
Evidence that MDC youth groups have engaged in violent campaigns has further undermined the party's credibility.
The MDC may yet regain control by forming a coatition with a third party.
Citing international sympathy for the MDC, for example, Mugabe has accused Tsvangirai of adopting foreign-imposed policies and of undermining the popular "black empowerment" agenda.
