Zimbabwe’s Vice President Kembo Mohadi Resigns After Sexual Misconduct Accusation
The vice President of Zimbabwe, Kembo Mohadi, has resigned, following an accusation of sexual misconduct.

According to Mohadi, he decided to resign, “not as a matter of cowardice but as a sign of demonstrating great respect to the office of the President”.
In a statement, Mohadi said he wanted to deal with his issues outside government office.
“I have been going through a soul-searching pilgrimage and realised that I need the space to deal with my problem outside the governance chair.”
He has however, denied the accusations, saying it is part of a political plot against him.
