An eyewitness has shared the horrific experience he had on scene of the fatal crash that killed Ginimbi and his three friends.
Genius Ginimbi Kadungure was killed in a fiery high-speed car crash early on Sunday.
He was 36.
Kadungure was returning home from Ruwa, just outside Harare, after celebrating a friend’s birthday at around 5AM when witnesses say his Rolls Royce had a head-on collision with a blue Honda Fit on Borrowdale Road.
The Rolls Royce careered off the road and smashed into a tree before catching fire. Kandungure was thrown off the vehicle and died at the scene along with three friends named as – Karim, Elisha and Moana, who was celebrating her birthday.
The driver and a passenger in the Honda Fit, which suffered damages on the front right side, escaped with minor injuries.
Witness Danny Kuwanga, who was one of the first people at the scene, said Kadungure was speeding.
“It happened in front of my eyes. He was speeding. He first overtook me and as he tried to overtake a second vehicle, that’s when he crashed into the Honda Fit driving the opposite way,” Kuwanga said.
Kuwanga said he was joined by three other man and they pulled Kadungure away from the vehicle which was now a fireball.
“The three girls didn’t make it out. They were just crying inside the burning car. We couldn’t do anything,” he added
In his final post on Instagram, where he had over 600,000 followers, Kadungure posted a video, declaring: “Guys it’s time to go out, it’s gonna be going down. We’re going to Dreams (nightclub) in the next few minutes, it’s gonna be going down. It’s Moana’s birthday, we’re going to pop champagne, it’s gonna be champagne showers tonight, see you there.”
As he gets into the vehicle, Kadungure tells his followers he’s “driving Rolls Royce Wraith.” The video cuts out as ‘Hello’ by Kabza de Small and DJ Mapholisa blasts from the US$500,000 motor.
The social media star and owner of Dreams nightclub, known for showing off his top-of-the-range sports cars and palatial home in Domboshava, was a cousin of Vice President Constantino Chiwenga’s estranged wife, Mary Mubaiwa.
Over the last two years, Zimbabwean authorities have investigated Kadungure for tax evasion and smuggling of liquefied petroleum gas worth millions of dollars.
During the inquiry, police also seized a Bentley and then later a Ferrari after the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority said he underpaid duty. The Bentley is still with police.
Mother Strips Naked In A Bid To Restrain Son From Assaulting His Wife
In a dramatic turn of events, an elderly Marange woman ended up stripping so as to stop her son from further assaulting his wife.
Gogo Zambuko told Mutare magistrate, Xavier Chipato, that her son, Charles Chidewu was so violent to the extent that he even attacks anyone who dares to intervene whenever he has issues with his wife.
The matter only came to light when Gogo Zambuko was applying for a peace order against Chidewu.
Manica Post reports that Magistrate Chipato granted the peace order in Gogo Zambuko’s favor.
Chipato also advised Chidewu to move out of the family house and find alternative accommodation for his family.
Gogo Zambuko said she regrets offering her son residence at her homestead as he is violent and has become a thorn in her flesh.
She also accused Chidewu of attempting to burn down her house during a fate of rage. Said Gogo Zambuko:
After having a misunderstanding with his wife, he closed all the doors and windows and opened the valve of a gas cylinder. I stopped him as he was about to light up a matchstick.
In his defense, Chidewu said he had no intentions of burning the house but was trying to stop her mother from stripping in his presence. He said:
I was having a misunderstanding with my wife and my mother came into our bedroom and stripped naked in our presence.
I opened the gas valve and threatened her with death in a bid to stop her from stripping for us.
I don’t understand how taking off her clothes was supposed to bring peace to our house.

Man returns home 47 years after he was sent to buy rice for his family
A Kenyan man, James Mwaura, who disappeared from home 47 years ago has found his way back home in Molo, Nakuru County thanks to Facebook.
Mwaura, now 70, went missing when he was just 23 years old in 1974 after he was sent to the shop to buy rice for the family.
According to CitizenDigital ,he reportedly lost his way in the process, only to find himself in Nairobi with no money and no kin to turn to as he found that his brothers who stayed in the city had also moved
He then hitched a ride to Naro Moru in Nyeri County where he started a new life and later settled into marriage with a woman he met there.
Years later, like everybody else these days, he was scrolling through Facebook when he stumbled upon a seemingly familiar face.
He sent the person a message in his inbox and it turned out to be one of his nephews.
The two struck up a conversation and agreed to meet up on Wednesday, before the family reunion eventually happened on Thursday, July 22.
Mwaura, who arrived home in a blue suit, informed the family members that he is now happily married and blessed with three children and four grand children.
Shona Ferguson fighting for life in ICU
Filmmaker Shona Ferguson is reported to be fighting for his life at a private hospital in Johannesburg after he struggled to breathe and complained of chest pains at home.
The actor underwent heart surgery when he got admitted to the private care unit and is currently in ICU.
Sources claim the actor has been in hospital for a week and that a group of specialists performed a heart operation after his condition got worse. Three other sources claim that his wife and business partner Connie Ferguson has kept mum about the ordeal because she has to be strong and keep the business running.
Connie referred all inquiries about her husband’s health to The Queen’s production manager Lauren Nell who did not reply to any messages when she was contacted.
A source close to the situation however, said Shona was fine before he started complaining about chest pains and not being able to breathe properly.
According to the source, they took it lightly because Shona is a fit and healthy guy who leads a healthy lifestyle. Little did they know that the situation would turn bad. “He is a fighter and he will pull through this ordeal. Yes, at the moment he is in ICU, but he will be fine.
“Connie was by her man’s side while trying to run their business. She is strong and carries on with grace and class.” There were also rumours that the actor contracted Covid-19 and is currently under quarantine as he was also placed on a ventilator at the hospital.
“All we knew was that he was sick with Covid-19. That is what we all thought he had,” another source said.
The Queen is currently trending on social media after the explosive Season 5 finale last Friday. The Sebatas and the Khozas took aim at each other and left viewers gasping for air at every scene as it rained bullets for 30 minutes.
