By James Gwati-President Emmerson Mnangagwa and former Vice President Kembo Mohadi clashed over a gold mine, resulting in Mohadi losing his job, it has emerged.

Mohadi resigned on the 1stof March after pressure from the media for him to leave the second-highest offices following allegations of sexual scandals with several married women.

Government sources close to the two said Mnangagwa plotted for the downfall of Mohadi after they had clashed over Redwing Mine in Penhalonga, Manicaland province.

The country’s then-largest gold mining group Metallon Gold, owned by South African tycoon Mzi Khumalo, suspended operations at its Redwing Mine in 2014 due to flooding.

Metallon owned five gold mines in Zimbabwe, namely How Mine, the most productive, Shamva Mine, Arcturas Mine, Mazowe Mine and Redwing Mine.

The problem in Penhalonga started with the placement of Redwing Mine under judicial management in 2018, due to viability challenges owing to foreign currency shortages.
