By A Correspondent- Kembo Mohadi’s wife, greeted ZimEye with a loud chuckle Tuesday morning after receiving the news that the man who once nearly axed her to death, has been forced to resign.
The Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) allegedly refused to open a criminal case against Vice President Kembo Mohadi after Mohadi allegedly went berserk and attacked his estranged ex-wife Tambudzani Mohadi using an axe.
In March 2020, the former VP broke down doors and threatened to shoot Tambudzani in a dispute over property.
However, more than 6 months later the police refused to open a docket against Mohadi despite Tambudzani’s efforts.
After futile efforts to have the VP brought to book, Tambudzani finally approached lawyers Scanlen and Holderness.
Below is a letter from the lawyers,
Zimbabwe Republic Police
Attention: Officer Commanding Beitbridge Police District Chief Superintendent T. Nyongo
RE: CRIMINAL COMPLAINT OF ASSAULT BY SENATOR TAMBUDZANI MOHADI AGAINST VICE PRESIDENT KEMBO MOHADI
We act on behalf of Senator Tambudza, Bhudagi Mohadi. Kindly note our Interest.
Our instructions are that on the 7th of April 2019, the Senator made a statement to inspector Chirimumimba, Zimbabwe Republic Police, Beitbridge Urban, with regards an attack and assault by her estranged husband, the Vice President Kembo Campbell Dugishi Mohadi, on the 30th of March 2019, at her residence in Beitbridge. We have attached hereto a copy of her statement for ease of reference.
The Senator advises that she has faced serious challenges in reporting the matter and obtaining the status of the police investigations. Since April 2019, the Senator has requested for updates on the police investigations to no avail.
We now seek your assistance in establishing whether a docket was opened regards the complaint made by our client. As the responsible authority, we seek confirmation on whether and criminal investigations into the Vice President’s behaviour have been conducted and whether any appropriate criminal charges have been or will be levelled against him. We request the said information to enable our client to consider her legal options.
We await your urgent response.

Speaking to ZimEye, Tambudzani said:
“Alright. Thank you. I am in a meeting.”
Senator Tambudzani said this soon after a loud, long chuckle.
Senator Tambudzani endured one of the worst treatments against women in Zimbabwe, when her husband in front of police officers held an axe against her body as he openly defied a High Court order.
The violence was reported by the police officers the then Vice President had taken to his wife’s house, to abuse her and seize property items she was awarded in a divorce settlement.
Mohadi was one of the country’s most powerful men who not only serviced in the Presidium, but was at one time the state security minister, heading the nation’s entire security apparatus.
Mohadi finally stepped down after an undercover meeting of spouses of Vice Presidents was staged for State House on Monday morning leading to the Vice President being fired.
He was forced to resign following his string of affairs with several women, who include teenage school kids, and last Thursday, ZimEye’s Simba Chikanza organised for one of his lovers, taken when she was an A Level student, to get ready to travel over to State House for the meeting.
She was directed to contact the President’s office for all her needs. The victim was also told to contact lawyers who can assist her. The highly charged telephonic conversations are replayed below.
