Zimbabwean Vice President Kembo Mohadi has resigned from his post in the midst of embarassing immoral allegations that have dogged him recently. While tendering his resignation today, Monday 1 March 2021, Mr Mohadi maintained his innocence, adding that he was ‘a victim of information distortion and that his voice was cloned to produce a damning voice message purported to be from him to one of his alleged secret lovers. Mohadi also accuses what he called ‘Political Sabboteurs’ of authoring his demise through fabrications.
‘Following the recurring dis-information and virilisation of my alleged immoral unions, dispensed through awkward slacktivism, I am stepping down as the Vice President of The Republic of Zimbabwe in terms of Section 96(2) of the Constitution of Zimbabwe (No 20), 2013 with immediate effect.” He said in his letter of resignation.
“I have been going through a soul searching pilgrimage and realised that I need the space to deal with my problems outside the governance chair. I have arrived at this decision not as a matter of cowardice but as a sign of demonstrating great respect to the office of the President so that it is not compromised or caricatured by actions that are linked to my challenges as an individual. Hard as it may be to my family, friends, comrades and cadres of my Party Zanu PF, I am taking the decision to step down as Vice President of Zimbabwe, to save the image of my government. My decision to relinquish the Vice President post is also a way of respecting the citizens of this Great Nation, and my Part Comrades, some of whom have been affected by the falsehoods and character assassination in the digital ecosystems.”
Reliable sources are not ruling out the notion that the beleagured former Vice-President may have been pushed out. It is widely expected that his senior President Emmerson Mnangagwa will accept his resignation.
