Zimbabwean Vice President, drags wife to court over Domestic Violence
Vice President Kembo Mohadi claims he now fears for his life after he initiated divorce proceedings against his official wife Tambudzani Bhugadi Mohadi, whom he accused of sending threatening messages on his mobile phone.
On August 10 this year, Mohadi approached the Civil Court in Harare seeking a protection order against her and an order barring the Beitbridge Senator from selling property they bought as a couple before finalisation of their divorce matter.
Part of Mohadi’s founding affidavit filed under case number DV1797/18 reads: “I have approached this honourable court seeking an order for protection order against the respondent in terms of the Domestic Violence Act.
More particularly, in that the respondent is a very abusive person and/or a person of a violent disposition such that I am now living in fear of my life.
After the respondent [Tambudzani] got served with copy of the divorce summons, the respondent has escalated her violent tendencies against my person [Mohadi] and even calling me on my mobile phone while insulting me and threatening to tarnish my image, which has the potential to damage my political endeavours in view of my political office and as a member of the government.”
Mohadi claims Tambudzani is now influencing the children to insult and turn against him and they are also selling some matrimonial property with her blessing.
