The whole world was thrown into confusion when news that Zimbabwean socialite and rich businessman Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure had gone to be with his maker.
As earlier reported by Legit.ng, social media was filled with condolences messages following his demise.
The socialite died following a grisly road accident along Borrowdale Road in Philadelphia, Harare, on Sunday morning, November 8.
Well, following his demise a lot of unconfirmed reports emerged including claims that he would be buried in an expensive Versace coffin.
What has been confirmed, however, is the fact that the late billionaire's mansion, located at Domboshava will be turned into a hotel as per his wish.
This, according to NewsDay Life and Style, was disclosed by Ginimbi's relatives who said the rich man had declared that no one should occupy his mansion in the event of his demise.
A family insider told NewsDay Life and Style:
“You know with what has been talked about his wealth, (that he acquired it through unorthodox means), Ginimbi is on record saying no one would occupy his house. He told people that it should be turned into a hotel."
The relatives also disclosed that Ginimbi had told them he really wanted to be remembered when he is gone, hence the need to convert his mansion into a hotel.
A relative said:
“He used to say he would want a mausoleum to be built for him such that he will always be remembered by many generations who would visit the hotel."
Ginimbi's family also revealed that he wanted a statue erected in his country in his honour.
Ginimbi's dad allegedly claimed he was not shocked when he heard about the accident as his son was a speedster.
“I received a call that he had been involved in an accident. We know he used to speed on the roads, so we were not shocked as the person who was phoning was crying. When we arrived at the accident scene, we saw his car in flames and he was sleeping by the side. He was my second born. Now only two girls are left after the death of the two boys.”
On whether the late Ginimbi had a child, the dad said he only knew one child, although he did not know the name.
“These boys would jump from one woman to the other, so you would never understand them. We only know of one, but I don’t know the name since we did not stay with him/her.”
He was involved in an accident along with three other people, who also passed away.
Legit.ng previously reported that Mimie Moana, one of the ladies who died in a fatal car crash with Ginimbi had earlier talked about her death before the accident.
Ginimbi, 36, was said to be a successful petroleum trader before his untimely death.
