Zimbabwe’s 71-year-old Vice President Kembo Mohadi has resigned.

Mohadi has been facing accusations of sexually abusing his subordinates in a plethora of phone calls that were leaked to the public via local news media.

However, Mohadi had last week dismissed allegations of sexual misconduct levelled by an online news outlet and dubbed himself as the victim of “political machinations”.

ZimLive, the local news media made five audio recordings of Mohadi’s phone conversations public.

The online publication claimed that in the audios, Mohadi is apparently soliciting sex from a number of women, including a married Central Intelligence Officer working in his office. In one of the telephone conversations, a man can be heard scheduling to have sex at his office.

In his defence, Mohadi “categorically” distanced himself from the “imagined immoral behaviour” and called himself “innocent” in a statement he wrote to the media.

He further blamed unnamed political foes for undertaking a voice morphing campaign to damage his reputation.” I am innocent and a victim of political machinations being peddled through hacking and voice cloning,” said the ex-intelligence minister.

“Despite growing impatient because of days of weird character assassinations, I wish to categorically state that the allegations being levelled against me are not only false but also well-choreographed to demean, condescend and spoil my image as a national leader and patriot,” reads the other part of the statement.

Meanwhile, women’s groups and social media have been calling the police to investigate the sexual harassment matter against the Vice President.
