Juliet Mutavhatsindi who is being sued for $1,5 million in adultery damages by Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s wife Tambudzani Bhudagi Mohadi (nee Muleya), has admitted she dated the Zanu-PF leader before finalisation of his divorce, but denied breaking the couple’s marriage.
Through her lawyers, Mugiya and Macharaga Law Chambers, Mutavhatsindi said she started dating the Vice President when his marriage with Tambudzani had broken down and the two had not been staying together or sharing a bed for a long time. Said Mutavhatsindi:
The (Mutavhatsindi) is aware that the plaintiff (Tambudzani) and Kembo Mohadi are presently involved in litigation in the High Court for the termination of the marriage relationship between them. By the time the defendant (Mutavhatsindi) developed a love relationship with the said Mohadi, in March 2018, the marriage relationship between him (Mohadi) and the plaintiff had irretrievably broken down and the two had not been staying together and sharing bed for a long time. The defendant did not inflict any contumelia upon the person of the plaintiff as alleged. The defendant denies alienating Kembo Mohadi’s affection for the plaintiff in any way and puts the plaintiff to the strict proof thereof.
