Moyo is vying for the Nkulumane constituency in his bid to become a Member of the House of Assembly.

In an interview with B-Metro, he spoke like a politician promising delivery of services and transparency.

a�?I know the struggle and pain people from my community go through. We have given many people a chance to represent us but in vain, I therefore pledge to represent people from Nkulumane because their struggle is also my struggle,a�? said Moyo.

Affectionately known as Moyoxide in the arts industry, he has been involved in community based projects to do with HIV/Aids and drug abuse.

He also runs Eziko Theatre Laboratory, a monthly workshop where local artistes are given a platform to express themselves.

What will he do for the arts industry if he wins the parliamentary seat?

a�?My first target are the youths because they are the future. I will make sure we build more youth centres so that the youth can realise their full potential and be coached about life skills so that they can be responsible citizens,a�? he said. brand cialis pills from canada.
