Zodwa Mkandla: Ginimbi’s family and friends should be patient. Last week, Mkandla, through her lawyers Venturas and Samkange, wrote a letter to Ginimbi’s long-time friend, Nomatter Zinyengere to have a Bentley Continental GTunder his custody surrendered. Ginimbi’s former wife, Zodwa Mkandla said the late Genius Kadungure’s assets should all be accounted for first before anyone can benefit. Zodwa wants the car registered with the Master of High Court as required in terms of the Administration of Estates Act and surrendered to the Executor.
She said she does need not the car or any part of Ginimbi’s estate but wants all the assets that belonged to the late socialite registered in his estate. Said Mkandla: Everyone knows that I bought that car and because it was registered by Genius, it should be part of his estate, no two ways about it.
People think that the cars that Genius left and all the other things are his net worth not realising that there are some huge bills that are outstanding and would need to be cleared first.
That is why everything that Genius left must be included in the estate and outstanding bills are settled before anyone can benefit. People, including his friends, should not hurry to lay claim to any of his properties before due processes.
We know he had businesses in South Africa, vehicles for those businesses, bank accounts and so forth and all those have to be accounted for and included in his estate.
There is nothing that happened with Genius, with regards his businesses, that he would not inform me and, especially that car given that I am the one who bought it. The Bentley Continental GT was reportedly bought by Zodwa from the UK in 2013, while Ginimbi paid for duty in Zimbabwe.
