One of Zimbabwe’s Vice Presidents, Kembo Campbell Mohadi has shockingly revealed that he is scared of his own wife.
Mohadi is reported by local media to have said that he fears for his life due to an acrimonious fallout with his wife Tambudzani Bhugadi Mohadi (nee Muleya).
The Vice President initiated divorce proceedings last year against his wife. Mohadi is now accusing his wife of sending him threatening messages on his mobile phone.
He said in an affidavit filed at the court that “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 endeavors in view of my political office and as a member of the government.”
Mohadi is said to be seeking protection from the court due to the alleged acts of his estranged wife. The Vice President also wants his wife stopped from selling the couple’s matrimonial property before the divorce process is finalized.
“I am a law-abiding citizen and given the increasing incidences of people who are killing their spouses for passion, I pray that this honorable court protects me against the threatened violence,” he said.
NewsDay reports that the couple got married in 1981 before separating in 1999. Mohadi claims that since then, his life has been a “living hell”.
He also laments how his wife has turned his children against him.
