KEMBO LEAVES LONG HELD BEITBRIDGE SEAT VACANT
The parliamentary seat for Beitbridge which has been held by Kembo Mohadi for years today fell vacant after he was sworn in as Vice President.
MDC- Alliance official Descent Collins Bajila said today Beitbridge East House of Assembly seat fell vacant and by law, if a Member of Parliament becomes Vice President their membership of parliament automatically lapses.
“When Emmerson Mnangagwa became VP in 2014, his Chirumanzi Zibagwe seat fell vacant. A by election was called and his wife Auxillia succeeded him. Kembo Mohadi has been Beitbridge MP since 1985. In 2005 when Senate was introduced, Mrs Tambudzani Mohadi became a senator. In 2008 when Beitbridge was split into Beitbridge East and West, Kembo took East while West went to Metrin Mudau,” Bajila said.
Now that Kembo leaves Beitbridge East after filling divorce papers against Tambudzani, it would be interesting to note whether sister Portia Mohadi or son Campbell Junior Mohadi or estranged wife will be deployed by the dynasties association.
Remember Andrew Langa and wife Clara run Insiza as their dynasty.
Clara has GMB and Rural District Council on remote. Their son Moses runs Agribank Filabusi.”
He also said Obert Mpofu and wife Sikhanyisiwe run Umguza.
“Mrs Mpofu is former Rural District Council boss. Now she is Proportional Representation MP for the Province,” he said.
“Just one dynasty fell. Many remain with us.”
