Kembo Dugish Campbell Mohadi (born 15 November 1949) is one of two Vice-Presidents of Zimbabwe since 28 December 2017. He briefly served as the Minister of Defence, Security and War Veterans in 2017. Previously he was Minister of State for National Security in the President's Office from 2015 to 2017 and Minister of Home Affairs from 2002 to 2015.
Having previously served as Deputy Minister of Local Government, he was appointed as Minister of Home Affairs in August 2002.
Mohadi was nominated by ZANU-PF as its candidate for the House of Assembly seat from Beitbridge East constituency, in Matabeleland South, in the March 2008 parliamentary election. According to official results he won the seat by a large margin, receiving 4,741 votes against 2,194 for Muranwa Siphuma of the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) faction led by Morgan Tsvangirai and 1,101 votes for Ncube Lovemore of the MDC faction led by Arthur Mutambara.
Following the swearing in of the Morgan Tsvangirai-led unity government in February 2009, Mohadi shared the Home Affairs ministry with Giles Mutsekwa of the MDC-T, as stipulated by the SADC arbitration in late 2008. After Mugabe won re-election in July 2013, Mohadi was re-appointed as sole Minister of Home Affairs on 10 September 2013.
President Mugabe moved Mohadi to the post of Minister of National Security on 6 July 2015. On 30 November 2017 he was appointed Minister of Defence, Security and War Veterans by Mugabe's successor, Emmerson Mnangagwa.
He was appointed as the Vice-President of the ZANU-PF political party on 23 December 2017 and sworn in as Second Vice-President of Zimbabwe on 28 December, 2017. Acting chief secretary to the President and Cabinet Justin Mupamhanga issued a statement on the following day that Mohadi had been appointed in charge of the National Peace and Reconciliation portfolio.
State television immediately cut its broadcast. The broadcaster, ZBC, later reported that Vice President Kembo Mohadi was injured in the leg and taken to a local hospital.
"In news just received Vice President Kembo Mohadi, Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri the Zanu-PF chairperson and political commissar Engelbert Rugeje were injured in the explosion," Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation (ZBC) said.
