President Emmerson Mnangagwa has revealed that Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s resignation came as a shock to him, as he least expected it.
Mnangagwa expressed this while addressing Zanu-PF’s 349th ordinary session of the Politburo at the party headquarters in Harare this morning.
“I welcome you all to this 349th Ordinary Session of the Politburo. We convene today following the resignation of Col (Rtd) Cde K.C.D Mohadi from the post of Vice President of the Republic of Zimbabwe. His resignation from the governance architecture of the 2nd Republic was unexpected but accepted.”
Mnangagwa thanked the former VP for his service towards the development of the nation under his administration.
“I commend him for the role he played under the Second Republic in advancing our government’s national development agenda as enunciated in Vision 2030 and National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1),” he said.
Mohadi called it quits on Monday this week following an expose of his alleged sexual connection with married subordinates and other women went viral as phone call audios circulated on social media last week.
In his resignation letter, the former VP claimed that he was a victim of “sponsored spooking and political sabotage” and asked the nation to forgive him for the tasks he failed to do well as he was on a “soul searching pilgrimage”.
“Following the recurring disinformation 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) 0f the Constitution of Zimbabwe (No.20) Act, 2013 with immediate effect,” he said.
