via Bulawayo24 NEWS | MDC-T bigwig ditches Tsvangirai over violence in the party. 13 June 2014 by Staff reporter
THE MDC-T Bulawayo provincial chairperson Gorden Moyo has stepped down as party chairperson citing violence in the party.
He said he will remain ordinary party member.
“Am stepping down from office of chairman of Bulawayo with immediate effect but I remain an ordinary member of the party and an MP for Makokoba”The leadership has failed to handle the outcome of the 2013 elections,” said Moyo.MDC-T factions were at the edge of their seats over Makokoba legislator and Bulawayo party provincial chairperson Gorden Moyo as he has not come out clean on which group he will join after the end of his sabbatical on June 1.
MDC-T president, Morgan Tsvangirai’s faithfuls in Bulawayo province have been pushing for the ouster of Moyo over suspicions that he is linked to the Tendai Biti-led faction.
“I don’t believe in fragments. Whether the fragment is led by Morgan Tsvangirai or Tenda Biti.
“I don’t want to implement decisions I don’t agree with.
“Some people might see this as cowardice I don’t care. I believe in principles. If we have a unified project for the people of Zimbabwe am available,” said Moyo.
Gorden Moyo has been taunted in some quarters as an emerging leader of the people of Matabeleland is no longer debatable as he has steadily gained stature against other political opponents from the region like Welshman Ncube, Dumiso Dabengwa, and Jonathan Moyo in the bid to fill the void left by Joshua Nkomo.
