Kembo Mohadi hospitalised

HARARE - Kembo Mohadi, the Zimbabwean co-Home Affairs minister, was on Tuesday detained at a private Harare hospital with an unknown ailment.

Although his wife Tambudzai, a Zanu PF Beitbridge senator, disputed the claims yesterday, St Anne’s Hospital chief operations officer Sehlule Nkomo could neither deny nor confirm whether the Matabeleland South supremo had been admitted at the facility.

“I am not sure because I am not at the hospital,” she said, referring further questions to one Mrs E C Mapepa, a matron at the hospital, who in turn said she could not comment on patients’ issues.

While the minister’s wife insisted that Mohadi had not been hospitalised, at least four independent sources told the Daily News the Zanu PF politburo member was taken in for observation earlier this week.

State Security minister Sydney Sekeramayi — who reportedly visited the Beitbridge East Member of Parliament yesterday evening — said he does not give interviews over the phone.

A former Zapu supremo, Mohadi is seen as a top contender for one of the Zanu PF presidium jobs or posts left vacant by Vice President John Nkomo’s death in January. - Staff Writer
