Sandi-Moyo says too old to want Grace’s post, unmoved by demonstrations

EMBATTLED Bulawayo provincial affairs minister and Zanu PF Women’s league deputy secretary, Eunice Sandi-Moyo, says she is ‘too old’ to harbour ambitions to take over from her boss, Grace Mugabe.

Moyo accused unnamed male party officials of working in cahoots with also unnamed senior officials from the Women’s League to orchestrate the current demonstrations against her and Sarah Mahoka.

Bussed women from across the country’s 10 provinces on Friday demonstrated at Davis Hall, Zanu PF’s Bulawayo provincial headquarters, demanding the ouster of Moyo and Mahoka who is the league’s secretary for finance.

The two are accused of undermining and insulting the First Lady, corruption and theft.

Friday’s demonstrations also followed similar nationwide protests on Wednesday where the wing was also calling for the ouster of the two party cadres from the party.

Addressing journalists at her Mhlahlandlela government offices, Moyo said the allegations being levelled against her and Mahoka were being fabricated by her enemies in the party who are bent on creating a rift between the minister and the First family.

“There is somebody, somewhere who is trying to create a rift between me and the First Family. I would like to tell those people who are behind this project that I am not moved at all. By the way, some powerful men are also involved in this project,” said a distressed Moyo.

She added, “I am now old and I do not have any ambitions to take over the leadership of the league. If the women are no longer interested in me, they have got the power to remove me but I remain a Zanu PF member. I am above all what has happened to me because I know my leader, I know my party.”

The minister said despite the demonstrations she will continue to work for the “development of Bulawayo”.

“While these people are busy looking for funds to fund demonstrations against me, I am busy initiating development projects in Bulawayo. Those periphery issues will not keep me out of my focus,” she added.
