Moyo who joined the MDC-T party two months ago romped to victory against all odds after entering the race as an underdog as the old guard backed prominent businessman and senator Matson Hlalo for the post.The old guard regarded him as a nonentity after he was handpicked for ministerial post by Tsvangirai.
Moyo maintained close relations with the MDC-T party up to the elections in 2008 where he campaigned to ensure that the MDC led by Welshman Ncube did not win in Bulawayo and in some parts of Matabeleland.
After his victory in Bulawayo Moyo received a golden handshake from the Prime Minister when he appointed him a cabinet minister in his office and later to the post of State Enterprises and Parastatals minister.
The party’s provincial organising secretary Doubt Nyoni confirmed the development last night soon after the elections held at the Zimbabwe Congress of Trade Union offices in Bulawayo.Said Nyoni: “I can confirm that minister Moyo is the new Bulawayo province chairman after getting against Matson Hlalo’s 172 votes.
Bulawayo Central House of Assembly member Dorcas Sibanda is the new deputy after ganering 180 votes against the outgoing chairlady Agnes Mloyi’s 155 votes,” he said.
