POLITICAL CAREER

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.
