Khaya Moyo to present Byo crisis report


ZANU PF national chairman Simon Khaya Moyo will soon table a report in the politburo on problems affecting Bulawayo’s provincial structures, among other provinces, following a series of crisis meetings last week.


Khaya Moyo, Zanu PF national commissar Webster Shamu and secretary for administration Didymus Mutasa visited Bulawayo last week and held marathon meetings with party members in a bid to quell infighting in the province.

The clashes, which turned violent last month, led to the arrest of five party members.

Last week’s meeting on Wednesday lasted 10 hours before a provincial co-ordinating committee meeting held the next morning.

Zanu PF spokesperson Rugare Gumbo yesterday said there was likelihood Khaya Moyo would present his report before the party’s highest decision-making body outside congress.

“I am busy now. Of course he will (table the report). I do not know, but I imagine he will,” Gumbo said.

During last week’s meetings in Bulawayo, some senior party members reportedly wanted the provincial executive to be dissolved and proposed an interim structure led by politburo member Calistus Ndlovu.

Insiders said during the three meetings with central committee and politburo members, there were suggestions the entire province be dissolved.

Some politburo members, according to insiders, had drawn up a list of an interim provincial structure after an anticipated dissolution of the province.

This, however, did not happen and Khaya Moyo’s team is said to have told the meetings that they were on a fact-finding mission.

Speaking to journalists last Thursday, Khaya Moyo said they were happy with the feedback they had received from the meetings and would compile a report to be presented before President Robert Mugabe and the politburo.

Chaos rocked Bulawayo early March following the suspension of provincial secretary of transport and welfare Langelihle Mathe and finance secretary Simon Khabo.

They were suspended for alleged insubordination and fraud respectively.
