HARARE – Former Vice President Kembo Mohadi has been given a ‘soft landing’ after ZANU-PF announced that he will remain the party’s vice president despite resigning from the government post.
Mohadi resigned from being the country’s Vice President following weeks of alleged scandals linked to sex escapades with multiple women including a subordinate.
He, however, still maintained his innocence even during the statement on his stepping down, instead, claiming he was a victim of falsehoods by political foes.
Announcing the retention of Mohadi as ZANU-PF Vice President, the party’s spokesman Simon Khaya Moyo said his (Mohadi) resignation will not affect his position in the party.
“The resignation by the former vice president from the government will not affect Cde Mohadi’s position in the party. He will remain the second secretary and vice president of the party,” Moyo said.
President Mnangagwa also thanked his former deputy, saying the resignation was unexpected.
“We convene today following the resignation of Col (Rtd) Cde KCD Mohadi from the post of vice president of the Republic of Zimbabwe. His resignation from the governance architecture of the Republic was unexpected,” Mnangagwa said.
This has left many questions as to what will happen when the next Vice President is appointed.
