Zimbabwe Vice President Kembo Mohadi resigns amid s*x scandal

Vice President Kembo Mohadi of Zimbabwe on Monday, March 1 2021, has resigned after being accused of sexual misconduct.

This comes after audio recordings of phone conversations in which Mohadi was allegedly soliciting sex from married women, including a subordinate in his office was leaked online in February.

The lurid clips included one where a man can be heard scheduling to meet for sex at his office.

In a rare move by a public official in Zimbabwe, Mohadi said he had taken the decision to step down “not as a matter of cowardice but as a sign of demonstrating great respect to the office of the President.”

In a statement released by the Ministry of Information, the Vice President said;

“I have been going through a soul-searching pilgrimage and realised that I need the space to deal with my problem outside the governance chair.”

The 70-year-old politician denied the accusations last week saying this was part of a political plot against him.

On Monday he continued to deny the accusations saying he would seek legal recourse.

Mohadi, a retired soldier and veteran of the country’s liberation war, was one of Zimbabwe’s two vice presidents alongside Constantino Chiwenga.
