The vice president of Zimbabwe, Kembo Mohadi has resigned over allegations that he sleeps with married women and his staff.
Mohadi told Al Jazeera that he took the decision to step down to show his respect for the office of president.
The 70 had denied that allegations last week citing rumours as a political plot against him. He continued to deny the allegations and has promised to take legal action.
He called evidence against him pseudo-paparazzi and flawed espionage.
