Vice President Kembo Mohadi’s estranged wife Tambudzani has taken the magistrate who dealt with her husband’s application for a protection order to the High Court, accusing the court official of mishandling legal procedures.
In the latest application filed at the High Court on Monday, Tambudzani is now seeking an order reviewing the magistrate’s decision in a contempt of court case. According to the application, the respondents are the magistrate only identified as Gwatidzo, the vice president, Irene Mohadi, Abigail Mohadi and Malcom Ambrose.Tambudzani applied for a review of the court’s decision to grant her husband a protection order, after which Mohadi filed another application for contempt of court against his wife. But Tambudzani, claims the contempt case was improperly handled.
She said the application for contempt of court had been set down for hearing on September 29, 2018, before being postponed to October 2, 2018 by consent of the parties. Tambudzani said on the hearing date, Mohadi was in default, leading to the dismissal of his application. She says the Vice President later discovered the development and filed a fresh application of contempt of court. She said the vice president later caused the application to be set down for hearing without seeking a rescission of judgment.
