THE Zanu-PF Bulawayo provincial women's league on Wednesday passed a resolution to recall Bulawayo Minister of State for Provincial Affairs Nomthandazo Eunice Sandi Moyo from Parliament.

Moyo, recently stepped down as the league's deputy Secretary.

 As such, the Bulawayo members said since she resigned from the women's league which was the basis of her appointment to Parliament under the women's quota, she can no longer continue as MP.

The provincial women's league chairperson Eva Bitu told a meeting that by resigning from the women's league, Moyo had admitted to the allegations levelled against her.

"She (Cde Moyo) resigned from the politburo which means she is no longer a Politburo and Central Committee member but an ordinary member. When you resign from a position because you have been accused of committing crime, in our culture it means you are admitting to those charges,' she said as reported by the Chronicle.

She said Moyo's Parliamentary seat should be declared vacant.
"We declare today that we are behind President Mugabe and we don't want to hear about the so-called Lacoste or G40 factions, we say down with them and as the women's league we are fully behind President Mugabe," said Bitu.

According to  Bitu,  Central Committee member and Zanu-PF national executive member Judith Ncube was now the most senior in the women structures of the province.
