President Mnangagwa has mourned the death of ZANU PF Spokesperson, Ambassador Simon Khaya Moyo who died yesterday.
Ambassador Moyo had been in a long battle with cancer.
In a statement, President Mnangagwa described Ambassador Moyo as a true patriot, freedom fighter, a resourceful and versatile cadre.
“Cde SK, as we all affectionately called him, was a stalwart of the Zimbabwe Liberation Struggle and a long time loyal personal aide to our late Vice President and father of Zimbabwe Cde Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo.
An alma mater of the famous Makerere University, Cde Moyo put all his skills, intellect and Pan African outlook to the national cause both before and after our Independence,” said President Mnangagwa.
Ambassador Moyo served as a Minister of Government in charge of key portfolios such as Transport and Information and as our Ambassador to the sister Republic of South Africa.
In nationalist politics and structures, he steadily rose through the ranks of the then ZAPU and later after the 1987 Unity Accord, of a United ZANU-PF until he was appointed as the Secretary for Information and Publicity in the Politburo.

“Even as his health failed, he always gave his outmost to his Party, Government and to our Nation. He stood for the unity of our people whom he served with complete devotion. Without doubt, our Nation will sorely miss his wise counsel, grounding with the grassroots and his characteristics energy and ebullience in all he did,” said President Mnangagwa.
Funeral arrangements are yet to be communicated to the public.
