First Lady Grace Mugabe has reportedly approved the decision to fire her deputy, Eunice Sandi Moyo, and finance secretary, Sarah Mahoka from Zanu PF women’s league after allegations of abuse of funds.
According to a source interviewed by NewsDay, the resolution came about after a motion by Zanu PF’s Goromonzi West MP, Beatrice Nyamupinga who moved a motion to have Sandi Moyo and Mahoka removed from their positions for alleged abuse of party funds. The source said that Mahoka is accused of abusing party funds for factional programmes, while Sandi Moyo is accused of protecting Mahoka. The source also alleges that some people want the two out after claims surfaced that Sandi Moyo was overheard arguing she would not attend Grace’s rallies because they are meant to destroy the party.
When interviewed by NewsDay, Nyamupinga could neither deny nor confirm that she moved a motion that led to action against the two. Meanwhile, Mahoka confirmed an executive meeting of the women’s league was held, but said the Grace-led organ had no powers to discipline Sandi Moyo as she is an appointee of the politburo. She also said she did not abuse party funds.The sources said Mugabe even though was against the decision to fire Sandi Moyo and Mahoka and will likely reverse it, the mere fact that she attempted it points to something brewing.
