Zimbabwe’s second Vice-President Kembo Mohadi on Monday, March 1, signed from office two weeks after he was accussed of engaging in improper sexual liaisons with married women, including one of his subordinates.
Mohadi,71, denied the allegations saying he was a victim of hacking and “voice cloning” after an online publication published lurid phone call recordings with multiple women.
Last week Mohadi claimed that the recordings were part of a political plot against him. He later threatened to take legal action against the publication.
“I’m a victim of information distortion, voice cloning, and sponsored spooking and political sabotage,” Mohadi said in a letter shared by the information ministry.

“I have been going through a soul searching pilgrimage and realized that I need the space to deal with my problems outside the governance chair,” he continued.
He further noted that his resignation was “not as a matter of cowardice but as a sign of demonstrating great respect to the office of the President.”
Mohadi, along with Constantino Chiwego, deputized President Emmerson Mnangagwa since 2018, but since he lacked a political power base, he was not seen as a potential successor to the President.
