Vice President Kembo Mohadi has resigned after an embarrassing sex scandal that exposed how he lured married young women and sometimes subordinates to sleep with him in his office.
The Ministry of Information confirmed that his resignation was with immediate effect.
Mohadi, however maintains that his private communications were intercepted/hacked leading to embarrassing leaks of his private communications.
On Monday, he chose to relinquish his office arguing he needed time to investigate and “seek clarity and justice on the matter in which my legal team will pursue and deconstruct this pseudo-paparazzi and flawed espionage to achieve cheap political points”.
“Dear citizens, it is my pleasure and privilege to leave the trust that you have bestowed upon me. I thank you for the tasks that I accomplished effectively and I ask for forgiveness for those tasks I failed to do well. I pray for humility, dynamism and the great principle to which the feathers of your trust give utterance.
“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. 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.”
Mohadi added: “The interconnectivity with social media ecologies have been relaying viral moral panics, peddling flames of lies, creating myths, and muddling the reality of my life as a family man.
“I am a victim of information distortion, voice cloning, and sponsored spooking and political sabotage. Digital media, in their hybridity, have been abused by my enemies to blackmail me, but my spirit will never die.
“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) Act, 2013 with immediate effect.
“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 the 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 Party Comrades, some of whom would have been affected by the falsehoods and character assassination in the digital ecosystems.
“My resignation is also necessitated by my desire to seek clarity and justice on the matter in which my legal team will pursue and deconstruct this pseudo-paparazzi and flawed espionage to achieve cheap political points. I promise to poke holes on this grand strategy from political foes”.
Seemingly, the recordings so far have already ruined two marriages including one of two Central Intelligence (CIO) officers. In one of the recordings an alleged voice of Mohadi is heard luring a woman who works in his office for sex. Nehanda Radio
