Ginimbi’s Ferrari Overheats Stuck In Harare CBD

Socialite, Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure’s roadshow for fans to bid him farewell was off to a false start today after his Ferrari overheated at around midday along Herbert Chitepo Street and 2nd Avenue in Harare CBD forcing its driver to abandon it there.

The luxurious vehicle which was one of the late Ginimbi’s personal favourites from his fleet was apparently being driven by his best friend, DJ Rimo who was en-route to Doves Funeral Services Parlour where Ginimbi’s memorial service was taking place.

Witnesses who were gathered where the car gave in said Rimo was reportedly doing high raves before the engine overheated.
Earlier on today, DJ Rimo posted a live video on Facebook of Ginimbi’s convoy as people made their way to the parlour. The convoy where the Ferrari was one of the cars, was met with cheers and ululations along the Domboshava-Harare highway.
The Ferrari is the same car which left Bulawayo in awe during Ginimbi’s last trip to the City of Kings and Queens last month.

A maximum of 100 people will attend the funeral of businessman and socialite Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure tomorrow at his mansion in Domboshava, in line with Covid-19 regulations, and the mourners will have to wear face masks and maintain social distancing, as at all funerals.

Musical shows and concerts have also been banned at the funeral in a bid to contain the spread of Covid-19, which has claimed 255 lives in Zimbabwe, National police spokesperson Assistant Commissioner Paul Nyathi said in a statement yesterday.

“To ensure a decent send off and burial, the Zimbabwe Republic Police implores the organisers of the funeral of the late Genius Kadungure to observe Covid-19 regulations, especially with regards to wearing of face masks, social distancing and the general maintenance of law and order.

“The organisers are reminded that under Covid-19 regulations, funerals are still restricted to not more than one hundred people.

“Musical performances or concerts are prohibited.

“Mourners are therefore urged to observe the law for the safety of others and themselves,” he said.

This comes after tents have been pitched and a stage for musical performances erected for the send-off of the late socialite with plans for a mass gathering of people from all walks of life.

Family spokesperson Mr Clement Kadungure had said there will be a church service from Salvation Army, which is their family church, and performances by various artistes.

“The programme for the burial of Genius is that we have agreed that his body will come home tomorrow morning and lie in the house.

“There will be a church service and testimonies from family and friends.

“We are expecting a lot of people including senior Government officials who will be present for his burial.

“The body will be taken to the tents on Saturday and that is where the body viewing will be taking place before the burial.

“He will be buried in his yard, not inside the house as being alluded to by some people.

“He will be buried according to our normal ways and according to tradition not what different people are saying,” he said.

Mr Kadungure said a mausoleum will be built soon after his burial but it will have his statue instead, since they want the mansion to be turned into a hotel.

He also dismissed claims of an all-white send-off party for Ginimbi saying it was a funeral not a party, so people are free to dress according to how they related with the late socialite.

Family of popular Zimbabwean socialite and millionaire, Ginimbi Genius Kadungure – wey die for motor accident on 8th November say im want pipo wey wan attend im burial to wear white dress.
