The Vice President of Zimbabwe has approached the Civil Court in Harare seeking a protection order against his wife who he says has left him in fear for his life.
Kembo Mohadi initiated divorce proceedings against his wife Tambudzani Bhugadi Mohadi. But after she got served with a copy of the divorce summons, Kembo claims his already violent wife became even more violent and began sending threatening messages on his mobile phone.
On August 10, Kembo Mohadi approached the Civil Court in Harare seeking a protection order against his wife 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 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.
