Legend has it that you cannot con a dead man or go contrary to his will. This is the case of the late Zimbabwean rich kid Ginimbi real name Genius Kadungure.
Word on the street is that part of his priced belongings had been confiscated by authorities after he was linked to fraud.
On December 2, Ginimbi’s death certificate was presented at a hearing before magistrate Trynos Utahwashe after prosecutor Teddy Kamuriwo made an application for the withdrawal of charges that were pending in court.
The year-long charges brought by Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) were cut short by the socialite’s tragic death on November 8 in the outskirts of Harare.
The charges were over claims the socialite undervalued a Bentley Continental and forged documents to import a Rolls Royce.
“WE HAD TO GO TO COURT BECAUSE GENIUS’ BENTLEY CONTINENTAL AND THE ROLLS ROYCE ARE STILL BEING HELD BY THE POLICE. FOR US TO HAVE THOSE CARS RELEASED, WE NEEDED TO FIRST HAVE THE CASES CLOSED AT COURT. WHAT WE WERE DOING AS HIS LAWYERS, WAS TO ENSURE THAT THE PROPERTY IS RELEASED, AND THEN, OBVIOUSLY, THE STATE ESTATE WILL THEN BE ABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR THOSE TWO VEHICLES AND ONCE THOSE PROCESSES WILL BE DONE, THE CARS WILL BE HANDED OVER TO THE EXECUTOR WHO WAS DULY APPOINTED BY THE MASTER OF THE HIGH COURT,” GINIMBI’S LAWYER BRIGHTON PABWE TOLD H-METRO.
Ginimbi’s wife, Zodwa Mkandla a.k.a Zozo and his family stand to inherit his vast wealth.
