Ginimbi’s Estate bristle with complications.
The winding-up of the estate of the late socialite and businessman Genius Kadungure AKA Ginimbi may be delayed due to some complications surrounding the case.
Ginimbi left an unsigned will and the Master’s of High Court is now calling a meeting of family members and beneficiaries to find a way forward in dealing with the case.
According to a local publication the Herald, the bulk of Ginimbi’s estate, including the businesses and Domboshava mansion are to be assigned to a trust under the unsigned will. There are individual beneficiaries and among them is someone called “Kit Kat” who is listed to take Kadungure’s Lamborghini vehicle.
Other possible beneficiaries of the estate were Genius’s father Anderson Kadungure and his sister Juliet and Neria.
Mr Nomatter Zinyengere who claims to be Ginimbi’s best friend had been leading the whole legal process. He is reported to have tried this week to register the deceased’s estate but was unsuccessful. He tried to make the Master of high court into accepting the unsigned will but failed.
The Herald reports that an online check was made on who Mr Zinyengere and he was identified as the director of a South African registered company called “Kat group” which was incorporated in August 2019. Hence making suspicions that he is the “Kit Kat”.
The custodians of the unsigned will, Ranros Estate Administrators, wrote to the Master’s Office at the high court seeking the court’s acceptance of the unsigned will.
The deceased died before signing his last will. We are therefore kindly asking your office to urgently convene a meeting with all beneficiaries so that you can accept the will and issue the court sealed letters of administration.
The deceased had a running business in Botswana and it stopped operations on November 9, 2020. The laws of that country require the estate to be reported to the Master of High Court within 14 days so that operations will resume.
The major fear of the beneficiaries is that the business partners of the deceased in Botswana might take advantage and vandalise the assets of the deceased,” reads part of the letter.
However, the request was not granted, the office of the master through a letter signed by KF Chigomararwa, who said the matter was not urgent and called for family members and potential beneficiaries to attend a meeting on Monday.
