THE Coalition of Democrats (CODE) is on the verge of collapse as more founder members pull out of because of what they called the "directionless" and "selfishness" of the alliance's leadership, reported.

Led by former energy minister, Elton Mangoma, CODE is one of the three opposition coalitions contesting elections due between July and August this year.

However, at the weekend leader of one of the seven alliance member, Maxwell Shumba of ZimFirst said he was pulling out because of Mangoma.

On Tuesday Barbara Nyagomo of the Progressive Democrats of Zimbabwe (PDZ) also wrote to CODE informing the group of her decision to quit.

In her letter to Mangoma, Nyagomo said the CODE leader was selfish.

CODE is made up of ZAPU of Dumiso Dabengwa, Mangoma's Renewal Democrats of Zimbabwe, the Progressive Democrats of Zimbabwe (PDZ) led by Barbara Nyagomo, Simba Makoni's Mavambo Kusile Dawn.

Also part of the group are the Marceline Chikasha-fronted African Democratic Party (ADP), Gilbert Dzikiti of the Democratic Assembly for Restoration and Empowerment (Dare) and Maxwell Shumba's ZimFirst.
