Kembo Dugish Campbell Mohadi

Minister of Home Affairs (with Theresa Makone)

Date of Birth: 15/11/1949
Place of Birth: Beitbridge

Education: Primary School, Beitbridge; Goromonzi High School, 1965; Commercial Careers College, 1972

Biography: Left for Zambia, 1972; Military training, Moscow; Imprisoned, Khami Prison, 1976-80; Education Officer, Beitbridge District, 1981-85; Central Committee, ZANU-PF, 1984; MP for Beitbridge, 1985-08; National Secretary for Finance, Youth League, ZANU-PF Central Committee, 1989; Deputy Minister of Sport, Recreation and Culture, 1995; Minister of Home Affairs, 2000 to date 

Commentary: Some surprise was felt when Kembo Mohadi retained his portfolio as co-Home Affairs Minister in 2009. His health is known to be poor and he made no impact in the last cabinet. He is a Mugabe stalwart and his main qualification for the job is through his connections in Matabeleland, where none of the three national leaders carries much clout. His position is ZANU-PF is stronger, his name has been mentioned among the contenders for Party Chairman. 

He headed the Ministry of Home Affairs with Giles Mutsekwa, an MDC man and one of three MDC ministers under an internal party investigation for corruption earlier this year until Tsvangirai's 24 June 2010 cabinet re-shuffle when Mutsekwa was replaced by Theresa Makone, formerly Minister of Public Works.
