Zodwa Mkandla, a famous businesswoman and socialite, has disclosed that the late Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure left behind some big bills that must be paid.
Zodwa made the claims while describing why she wants a’missing’ Bentley Continental GT surrendered and registered as Ginimbi’s part of personal property.
This comes after Ginimbi’s lawyers sent a letter of demand to Nomatter Zinyengerere, Ginimbi’s long-time mate, requesting that the car be surrendered within five days. The Bentley Continental GT supercar is said to be in Kit Kat’s possession in South Africa, according to the lawyers.
In an interview with H-Metro, Zodwa claimed that all of Ginimbi’s properties must be included in his estate in order to ensure that all unpaid bills are paid first.
“People wrongly assume that the cars Genius left behind and everything else he owns reflect his net worth, not realising that he owes some big bills that must be paid first.
“That is why, before anybody can prosper, all Genius left must be included in the estate and all unpaid bills must be paid. People, including his relatives, should not rush to demand any of his assets before the proper procedures have been followed.
Few people have more power over Ginimbi’s affairs than Zodwa, who was a close confidante and business associate of the late socialite.
Zodwa was previously engaged to the late businessman, and the couple was dubbed “Ginizo” by the local press. The businesswoman, who was known in social circles as Mai Ginimbi, later announced that the two had called it quits. Despite the break-up, she maintained that there was no bad blood between them and that they stayed together.
In November, the flamboyant businessman died when his Rolls Royce Wraith was involved in a high-speed collision, causing the supercar to burst into flames. When the doors to the burning car failed to open due to the impact of the crash, socialite Michelle “Mimi Moana” Amuli and two other associates died.
