Relatives of the late socialite and businessman Genius Ginimbi Kadungure and other possible beneficiaries of his estate, on Wednesday unanimously accepted an unsigned will recently filed at the Master of High Court which gives a friend known as “Kit Kat” a Lamborghini and places all other assets under a family trust.
The bulk of the assets including the Domboshava mansion, cars and companies will be part of the Genius Kadungure Trust.
The mansion will be converted into a hotel, which operates under the said trust.
Ginimbi’s father, Anderson Kadungure, according to the will, is entitled to 10 percent of funds generated in the trust while Ginimbi’s sisters Nelia and Juliet will get 60 percent and 30 percent respectively.
A Harare man claiming to be Ginimbi’s best friend, Nomatter Zinyengere, last week registered the deceased’s estate and filed a will that was not signed.
Yesterday, at least 10 people including Ginimbi’s father and his two sisters, Ms Zodwa Mkandla and Zinyengere met at the Master of High Court’s office in Harare where they unanimously agreed on using the unsigned document for administration of the estate.
Sources said the unsigned will was read out to all the possible beneficiaries who agreed to using it for the administration of the estate.
To that end, the Master of High Court’s office officially accepted it and appointed Patricia Darangwa as the executor in terms of the will.
Darangwa is expected to file a bond of security, her letter accepting the appointment and other requirements in terms of the law to enable the issuance of formal authority to start work.
The Herald understands the will in question, though unsigned, gives the Lamborghini to Kit Kat and another vehicle to the late socialite’s uncle Michael Mubaiwa.
Darangwa, the executor to the estate, will then choose the trustees from a list of people that include Ginimbi’s father, two sisters and Kit Kat.
The bulk of the estate, including the businesses and Domboshava mansion and cars, are to be assigned to a trust called Genius Kadungure Trust.
