The just ended Zanu PF Politburo has relieved Cde Eunice Sandi Moyo and Cde Sarah Mahoka of their duties in the Women’s League.
Cde Sandi Moyo was the National Deputy Secretary of the wing, while Cde Mahoka was Secretary for Finance.
The Politburo’s decision follows last week’s countrywide demonstrations against the two by the Women’s League and Youth League members, who accused them of insubordination and misappropriation of funds.
Announcing the outcomes of the 308th session of the Zanu PF Politburo in Harare this Wednesday evening, the party’s Secretary for Information and Publicity, Cde Simon Khaya Moyo said the Politburo’s resolution to relieve the two comes hot on the heels of their letters of resignation.
Cde Khaya Moyo said the fact that they brought in their resignations is a confirmation that they are guilty of the misdemeanors.
Executive members of the Women’s League from all provinces staged countrywide demonstrations against the two executive members accusing them of a number of misconduct that included insubordination, misappropriation of funds, abusing the name of the First Lady, Dr Grace Mugabe and working to remove her from the post of Secretary for Women Affairs.
Cde Mahoka is also accused of insulting Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa.
Cde Khaya Moyo said the Politburo also spoke about the Command Agriculture Programme and the Brazil More Food for Africa Programme where it was revealed that the South American country is happy with Command Agriculture Programme and is willing to give Zimbabwe further assistance.
He also announced that Spain has also expressed interest in getting on board in the sector.
The Minister of Finance, Cde Patrick Chinamasa, who is also the Secretary for Legal Affairs in the party, also briefed the Politburo on the Presidential Inputs Scheme for the 2017-18 agricultural season, which will cover 1,8 million households for maize and small grains.
The politburo was also briefed on the citrus, sugar beans, tomatoes and groundnuts project where 2500 hectares have been identified for cultivation under irrigation, making it the first time horticulture project under irrigation for small holder farmers.
Cde Chinamasa went on to explain that the refurbishment of infrastructure damaged by Cyclone Dineo is underway at a cost of US$105 million.
According to Cde Khaya Moyo, the Politburo also discussed energy projects, investment promotion, external relations and the forthcoming Zimbabwe International Trade Fair, among other issues.
