Former cabinet minister and Zanu PF spokesperson Simon Khaya Moyo has died. He died at the age of 76.

Moyo had been battling a long illness and died at a hospital in Bulawayo.

“I got a call from our (ZANU PF) head office informing me that we have lost SK. I do not have full details, like what time it happened, but yes, it is true that it has happened,” ZANU PF Acting spokesperson Dr. Mike Bimha told our sister station, ZIFM Stereo News.

Moyo served as Zimbabwe’s ambassador to South Africa from 2007 to 2011 and was later in 2015 appointed Minister of Economic Planning and Investment Promotion.

In October 2017, Moyo took over from Christopher Mushowhe as Information, Media and Broadcasting Services minister.

He has also served in various capacities, including being an assistant secretary in the Ministry of Home Affairs and undersecretary in the Justice ministry in 1989.

He also previously served as Energy minister.

After the 2018 elections, Moyo was re-assigned to work full-time at the Zanu PF party headquarters in Harare.  Since 2018, he had been serving as the party spokesperson and as Matabeleland South senator.

He was in September replaced with Dr. Mike Bimha as ZANU PF acting Secretary for Information and Publicity.

Moyo joined the then Zimbabwe African People’s Union in 1968 and received military training in Russia and Cuba.
