 In CentOS yum requires yum-fastestmirror ... so you can't remove the
plugin without breaking the dependencies (or removing yum
itself). Obviously you can _disable_ the plugin without removing it.

 This means python can't find the yum module anymore, which probably
means that parts of yum have been removed ... or something that yum
relies on. If rpm still works, you can try installing all the packages
you removed ... and then see if yum works again.
