The ruling party ZANU-PF has lost its spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo this afternoon at the age of 76

The sad news about the former Minister of Information was confirmed by a family member this afternoon

Khaya Moyo, an ultimate political survivor who treaded a fine political line in the latter years of his political life, succumbed to an undisclosed long-term illness Sunday, according to a close family member.

“He has breathed his last following a long illness. The man has rested,” the family source said.

Khaya Moyo, a former Zipra cadre, played a key role in the liberation struggle and is previously Zimbabwe’s ambassador to South Africa.

He quit his ambassadorial post in 2009 to take up to become a Zanu PF national chairman and also held several cabinet posts until he was retired by President Emmerson Mnangagwa in 2018.
