Blow for Tsvangirai as Gorden Moyo steps down


Movement for Democratic Change leader Morgan Tsvangirai today received a terrible blow when Bulawayo provincial chairman Gorden Moyo said he was stepping down because he could not work under a fragmented leadership. Moyo, the founder of Bulawayo Agenda was brought into politics by Tsvangirai who appointed him a special adviser in the Prime Minister Office hoping he would lobby donors to give more aid to the inclusive government and this prop the MDC. “I am stepping down from the office of the chairman of the province of Bulawayo MDC with immediate effect. I continue being available to work towards the emancipation of the people of Zimbabwe, in particular my constituency in Makokoba. Once the time is right, once the conditions are right for people to work in a unified fashion; when all people, progressive forces, every political party in the country combine to work to install democracy … to push for the democracy project in Zimbabwe, I am available. But under the current circumstances, in the current contexts where there are fragments in the MDC, I can’t be a member and be part of any of those fragments at leadership level. I remain an ordinary member … working as a Member of Parliament,” Moto said according to Business Day.
