In the March 2008 parliamentary election, Nyoni was elected to the House of Assembly as the ZANU-PF candidate in Nkayi North. She received 4,634 votes against 4,234 for Moyo Talent of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC)-Mutambara faction and 1,075 for Mlilo Thembinkosi of the MDC-Tsvangirai faction.
The Herald reported on January 3, 2009, that Nyoni had been dismissed from the Cabinet earlier in the week, along with 11 other ministers, because she no longer held any seat in Parliament.
