Genius Kadungure is a 'free man' as all charges against him have been  dropped by the state. The Herald Zimbabwe reports that the late Zimbabwean socialite faced charges of fraud. 

Ginimbi was accused by the state of creating fraudulent documents in order to make a large purchase of his luxury Rolls Royce. In the process, his fake documents caused the state to lose out on more than $90 000.

The socialite was accused of fooling the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra) by making it seem as though he had bought the car for 3 million USD, but the total cost of the vehicle is 5 million. He had bought the car in South Africa and was imported to his home, handing the incorrect invoice to Zimra.

He also created a fake invoice number to make it seem as though the South African Revenue Services (SARS) had cleared the vehicle. The other offense he was charged for was 'undervaluing' another one of Bentley cars.

Approving the cases to be withdrawn by Prosecutor Mr Taddy Kamuriwo was magistrate Trynos Utahwashe. This after Kadungure’s legal team handed over his death certificate.

When it comes to his businesses, his business manager Ms Shally has spoken out in an interview with H Metro. 

“Right now it’s important for people to understand that the family is mourning, they aren’t focused on who is taking what because they are hurt that he is gone, it’s sad that there different articles, news going around but I can tell you that the family isn’t worried about what’s going around with the business or the assets, they are hurt because they have lost someone they love,” she said.

Nelia Kadungure, Ginimbi's little sister who inherited the bulk of Ginimbi's estate has taken to social media to express how heartbroken she is at the loss of her dear brother Genius.

Nelia Kadungure posted screenshots of conversations and messages she sent her brother the late Ginimbi. The message on the initial screenshot was the birthday message Nelia sent Ginimbi and it said:

"My love for you knows no bound
My respect for you is equally immense
G you my ultimate emotional support and you my sweetest friend

Nelia shared the screenshot with a caption that read:

"Going through our chat G u hurt me the most. Your Death has caged me in pain, agony and misery Bro will I ever heal?"
Ginimbi was said to have been closest to his sisters out of everyone in his family and it shows in how his estate is going to be distributed. Nelia used to regularly share pictures of herself at Ginimbi's mansion before his death and this showed how much they regularly interacted.
