1/ So I hear that VP Mohadi’s lawyers have written a letter requesting that I retract yesterday’s tweet. I say hear as I’m yet to receive correspondence to that effect.
2/ Ok how about this? For ease of reference, my lawyer is Marufu Mandevere at The Firm, Kadzere, Hungwe & Mandevere Legal Practitioners, 9th Floor Takura House, Kwame Nkrumah Ave (between 1st&2nd Streets)
3/ May the lawyers do away with the formalities of the letter&be instructed by their client to have the weekend to prepare papers to sue me as it’ll be a pleasure to expose the evidence gathered. It’s time we dealt with corruption from a top 2 bottom approach; the gloves are off!
4/ Word has it that VP Mohadi is the Godfather of smuggling in Beitbridge&has abused his power for too long. There are even allegations of rape&murder against him, dossier of which I’ll be compiling for submission to
@edmnangagwa & I look forward to H.E. acting upon the info
5/ He’s alleged to have always acted in the interests of white people like Goddard&attempted to protect the interests of the Chinese at Sunny Yi Feng from where his tiff with me appears to emanate when I intervened to halt construction pending EMA & working conditions compliance
6/ At least the impending law suit will give me the opportunity to expose all the corruption without fear or favour. In my quest to tackle corruption if I can’t expose the sharks at the top then it’s a waste of time
7/ I can’t truly say that we have a VP of substance in Mohadi who would appear to have a litany of corruption allegations trailing him. RGM wasn’t wrong in not appointing him. I’ve been through persecution in RGM’s era&enlisting Goddard with flimsy charges against me won’t stick
8/ There’s been over 70 cases against me&I’ve suffered the mental trauma of being in&out of jail over the same number of times during the RGM era with the then CG Chihuri&Mohadi as Home Affairs for nothing but persecution. I was acquitted in all instances;those tactics don’t work
9/ The new dispensation isn’t about being evil to settle personal scores! I’ll stand for justice to protect the next person.
10/ My worry isn’t it being detained for nothing but in the scourge of corruption from those who think they’re untouchable&neglect to improve prison conditions to cushion their inevitable visit
11/ We’ve been skirting around corruption&this time I’m going for the sharks. I invite anyone with any info to add to my growing pile of evidence against VP Mohadi to come forth on Twitter or WhatsApp me on +263732300148 or email email@example.com enough is enough!
12/ I’m tired of useless politicians who get into power only to abuse it. As a Minister of State Security it’s alleged that Mohadi applied for USD allowances meant for external trips to travel locally to Beitbridge instead of bonds/RTGSs
@edmnangagwa that can be easily verified
13/ I’ve received more information from those in ZANUPF of shenanigans in Beitbridge amongst them Hon Ngulube, an alleged victim of Mohadi’s abuse who was eventually allowed to stand in Beitbridge against Mohadi’s wishes
14/ It’s also time the ZRP CG was honest with
@edmnangagwa about the criminals surrounding him & at this level I’ll copy my correspondence about Mohadi to the ICC
15/ What has Mohadi done in his role of reconciliation? No-one respects him even in his own area & RGM was correct in his wisdom & not wrong about not choosing him. There’s nothing tribalistic about it, just plain fact as there are many from the region who are honest & deserving
16/ I’ve heard of JR Goddard who has corruptly benefitted & is used without a grain of evidence to press charges & will be caught in the net when it closes. How is it that he has benefitted over more capable indigenous persons? I’ll leave no stone unturned
17/ In fact I’m looking forward to my day in court as my evidence may get lost in the system if I submit it to law enforcement agents or ZACC, it’s safer before the courts. One mustn’t forget that disgruntled runners know a lot! I’m ready to appear in court at any time
18/ The ZIPRA War Vets have been neglected & Mohadi has done nothing to represent them. There are more influential & deserving ZIPRA Commanders than Mohadi that have better capacity & people at heart
19/ The sooner I can defend any fictitious allegations by those you’re in cahoots with the better, let’s see who comes out clean! I’ve stood the test of time because of my stance against corruption, can you?
