DECEASED businessman and socialite Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure’s sister has responded to reports that the deceased instructed that his designer clothes and other personal items such as jewelry be burnt upon his death.
According to an unsigned will which a Harare resident claiming to be Ginimbi’s friend tried to push at the Master of the High Court, Ginimbi is also said to have demanded that his family sell his expensive luxury cars and the proceeds be sent to charity homes.
His car collection, which consists of Rolls-Royce Ghost, Bently, Bentley Continental GT, Range Rover, Lamborghini, Ferrari is said to be valued at US$5 million.
Ginimbi also asked that, his plush mansion be used as hotel or a museum, according to the unsigned document.
However, Ginimbi’s sister Juliet has said there is no way the family would burn all such valuable property and personal effects of the deceased.
“It’s surprising that people are saying his things are supposed to be burnt and at the same time saying we should meet the Master of the High Court. For what if the things are to be burnt?” said Juliet in am interview with the Daily News.
“Nothing is going to be burnt. Do you know the cost of his clothes alone before we go into jewellery and his bedroom?
“The clothes he was wearing on the fateful day alone cost thousands, and you think we will go on to burn such. The Gucci shirts?”
Her sentiments come as Ginimbi’s lawyers said he did not leave any will.
This week, the Master of the High Court will sit down with the Kadungure family and creditors and debtors to determine how his estate can be handled. – Zimbabwe Voice ■
