FORMER Senator and Bulawayo Provincial Affairs Minister, Eunice Sandi Moyo, has died.

She was 77.

Cde Sandi Moyo died at Mater dei Hospital in Bulawayo this morning after a long battle with hypertension, her daughter, Phoebe, confirmed.

“We are devastated that mom is gone, but comforted by the fact that she was there for us all along as a mother, not for us alone but for the country,” she said.

“We are proud of her life and the service she rendered to her country. While on national service she did her duties with diligence and honour.
“Mom did a lot for the country and we are glad she was there to see our achievements. She did not sacrifice for us alone but for many others.”

Zanu-PF Politburo member and former Cabinet minister, Retired Col Tshinga Dube, expressed shock over Sandi Moyo’s death.

“It’s true that she has passed on and we are taken aback. We know Sandi Moyo from the days of the struggle in Zambia where she worked closely with the likes of the late Jane Ngwenya, Angeline Masuku and when she was one of the assistants to Joshua Nkomo in the offices,” he said.

“After independence we know she became a Governor for Bulawayo and worked for the party. Sandi Moyo worked hard for her country before and after independence. Despite what happened later what is crucial is that her contribution to her country will always be remembered,” he added.

The late former minister is survived by four daughters and a son. Mourners are gathered at House Number 17 Onslow Road, Sunninghill Suburb, Bulawayo.
