Sick Mohadi sneaks out of Zimbabwe

VICE-PRESIDENT Kembo Mohadi has reportedly been flown out of the country for medical attention after he fell sick recently, Parliament heard yesterday.

Mohadi was expected to appear before the Temba Mliswa-led Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines yesterday to speak on the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) operations in Chiadzwa during his tenure as State Security minister and how the spooks came into contact with shadowy Chinese businessman, Sam Pa.

“The VP Mohadi is not feeling well and he is outside the country right now, but he has said that when he feels better he will actually appear before the committee to speak on the diamond issue,” Mliswa said, adding that the committee wished him a speedy recovery.

Mliswa’s committee also ordered the Central Intelligence Organisation (CIO) to track down Sam Pa and bring him to Zimbabwe to explain his role in diamond mining activities in Chiadzwa.

This was after CIO director-general Isaac Moyo told the committee that he had not seen any documents regarding the organisation’s joint venture with Kusena Diamond Mining Company.

Last week, former CIO boss Happyton Bonyongwe told the same committee that operations in Kusena were transparent and that there was documentary evidence to prove all its transactions.

“I have been CIO director-general since January this year and may not be privy to some of the things that happened before, but I was briefed about the activities and I need to be frank and say that at this point and regarding the diamond joint venture with the CIO, I have not been able to see a copy of that agreement and I am unable to comment on the nature of that agreement,” Moyo said.

“This morning (yesterday) I was trying to get hold of my predecessor, but unfortunately he is out of the country and it seems the agreements might not be produced in writing.”

Another CIO director identified as Jimias Madzingira told the committee that although he knew about Sam Pa, it was difficult for him to comment about the Chinese businessman because he used to deal directly with Bonyongwe.

Madzingira disclosed that the CIO was in a joint venture partnership with China International Fund fronted by Sam Pa in Kusena, adding they were also shareholders in Sino Zim.

  1. I know nobody deliberately invites illness into their lives but frankly to have a President & his 2 vice presidents all taking turns to check into hospital on different days of the same month is quite something

    1. Marufu Chihwandire

      Haiwa tibvirwe. Tsvangirai haana kufira muhospital imi muchingoti Tsvangirai chete chete?

  2. Is Chiwenga going to fire this guy for seeking medical treatment abroad. The hypocrisy of zanu Pf, it is a well known fact that the health system is a catastrophe which the nurses are fighting to change. You never here such stories in South Africa or Botswana, it is only in Zimbabwe where politicians proudly flock to foreign hospitals leaving us poor Zimbos to attend poor hospitals and receive treatment from poor nurses and doctors. For Tsvangirai dying in SA is also a reflection that there is no “hospitals” in Zim. Parirenyatwa must be fired

  3. Comment…yeah parerinyatwa must be fired I think there must be a national protest against him

  4. ‘Apo hamuna manurse!!!!’

  5. Comment…@eagleseye, Augustine Chihuri is also in hospital outside the country. Seems all the bigwigs implicated in the Chiadzwa are outside the country except Dumbuguru who was defended by his lawyer Patrick Chinamasa. I am disappointed that Dexter Nduna and Blackman who are part of the mining committee have taken a politican stance to defend their lacoste cabal colleagues. The lacoste cabal leadership are implicated and yet they dare talk about corruption. How they wish if Mugabe could fall sick and fail to appear before the committee. Pasi nejunta.

    95% of government ministries are a mess. There is absolutely nothing coming out of them which is not debt. Imagine a situation where our rulers find both private and public hospitals not worth for their medical treatments but rather they use tax payers’ money to hire private jets and leave our hard earned money abroad where they get medical solutions. Army is getting new cars everytime, chiefs got brand new Isuzu Twin Cabs, ZANU PF recently bought brand new Ford Rangers for campaigning. Its simply a matter of priorities… #CARS FIRST, #HEALTH SYSTEM nowhere to be found no the priority list. Regai vadye nguva yavo yasara ishoma

  8. The net is closing in on the corrupt and the stress is making them sick. it’s just a matter of time for the truth to come out. You can run but you cannot hide.

  9. Government should address the health sector asap and medical staff working conditions kuti isu tisina mari tibatsirikane kana tichinge tarwara

  10. GOD KNOWS THE SHAPE OF EVERY COUNTRY FUTURE. WHO KNEW THAT MUGABE WOULD BE GONE BY NOW. THE TRANSFORMATION IS ONLY BEING DONE BY GOD ALONE. NOBODY KNOWS WHETHER THE TRANSFORMATION HAS BEEN COMPLETED OR NOT. HOWEVER GOD LOVES HIS PEOPLE AND IT WAS THROUGH PRAYERS THAT HUMAN REQUESTS ARE BEING ANSWERED. WE CONTINUE TO PRAY FOR THE JUDGEMENT TO BE PASSED ON TO THE EVIL PEOPLE FOR THE SAKE OF PEACE AND TRANQUILITY. CHIWENGA AND MUNANGAGWA MUST FACE JUSTICE FOR ABDUCTING DZAMARA AND KILLING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT CIVILIANS DURING GUKURAHUNDI. THE 2008 KILLINGS IS ALSO WHAT WE ARE DIRECTING OUR PRAYERS ON. WE WILL VOTE CHAMISA NOT THUGS.
