HARARE businesswoman and socialite Pokello Nare has revealed how she warned Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure against buying his supercars saying he was drawing too much unnecessary attention.
Ginimbi died last week in a freaky accident while driving one of his super cars, Rolls Royce.
In a heartfelt tribute message to Ginimbi, Pokello said, “I would fight with you about the cars so many times. G wait a little before you bring in the Ferrari, these cars will bring too much heat on you.”
Ginimbi was a lover of a flashy lifestyle and wanted his success to be seen through his ‘toys’.
“But G believed that success must be seen and felt. His ‘toys’ were his biggest treasure…” Pokello wrote.
The day Ginimbi died social media was flooded with rumors that he had used witchcraft and sacrificed his brother and mother to attain his wealth.
Pokello stood her ground and defended her friend of 15 years against ‘haters’ who were tarnishing his image.
“The death of Andrew who they accused you of ‘sacrificing’. He had suffered from a heart condition for years, you had flown him out for surgery and done everything that your money could allow you to but still they say, ‘he didn’t take care of his family,” she wrote.
She also spoke of rumours that Ginimbi sacrificed his mother who died last year.
“Mama’s cancer was detected too late but you paid hospital bills at avenues for years till the inevitable happened. They still say, ‘he sacrificed’ his mother,” said Pokello.
Ginimbi died in a car accident along with his three friends on their way home from a party. He was laid to rest on Saturday at his Mansion in Domboshava.
