Zimbabwean Vice President Accused Wife of Torments Says ‘I’m scared of my life’

Zimbabwean Vice President, Kembo Campbell Mohadi, has claimed that he now feared for his life as a result of torture he receives from his wife, Tambudzani Bhugadi Mohadi, whom he also accused of sending threatening messages on his mobile phone after he instituted divorce proceedings last year.

Mohadi approached the Civil Court in Harare seeking a protection order against his wife who is and an order barring from selling the couple’s matrimonial property before finalisation of their divorce matter.

He also claimed that his wife who is a senator from Beitbridge has gone to the extent of turning their four children against him.

He told the court, “I am a law-abiding citizen and given the increasing incidences of people who are killing their spouses for passion, I pray that this honourable court protects me against the threatened violence,” he said.

“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 leaving in fear of my life.”

The couple got married in 1981 under Marriage Act, (Chapter 5:11) before separating in 1999, and Mohadi claims that since then, his life has been a “living hell”.

Sometime in September last year, Mohadi, who then was State Security minister, approached the High Court in Bulawayo seeking nullification of the couple’s marriage, claiming it had irretrievably broken down and the matter is still pending.

The VP claims that his estranged wife started behaving violently towards him after she was served a copy of the divorce summons.

“The plaintiff made some developments at the farm, namely 450 herd of cattle, fishing compound, safari camp, manager’s house, main house and farm workers’ compound. The plaintiff is also leasing a farm at Delma Lupepe Farm, Insiza District and has a herd of 460 cattle,” Mohadi said.

“It is just and equitable that the 450 herd of cattle be awarded to defendant (Tambudzani) and the 460 herd at Delma Lupepe Farm be awarded to plaintiff. The parties also acquired a homestead in Dipeni, Beitbridge, under Chief Staunze and there are a few goats and some sheep. It is just and equitable that the same be awarded to the plaintiff.”
