Harare businessman Genius Kadungure (popularly known as Ginimbi) implicated former first lady Grace Mugabe for obstructing justice and blocking his alleged accomplice Wicknell Chivayo’s arrest.
Chivayo acquitted in the matter leaving Kadungure to face trial of duping Chegutu West Member of Parliament Dexter Nduna and Ivon Gatawa of money amounting to over R2 million. Kadungure’s application for discharge was dismissed by the magistrate who indicated that the fact that he paid back $50 000 to the Gatawa brothers was a sign of admission of guilt. In his defense Kadungure indicated that he was a victim and the real culprit was Chivayo but he was untouchable. Said Ginimbi:
When I got arrested I tried to assist the investigating officers to get to the bottom of the issue by giving them the evidence that I had but at that time Chivayo was untouchable because the then first lady (Grace Mugabe”was protecting him. I even went to the former first lady to try and get Chivayo arrested but apparently he was untouchable and it was to no avail.
Kadungure also claimed that he paid $50 000 USD to the Gatawa brothers not to conceal the matter but because my lawyers advised me that it was the fastest way to let the matter rest as he has a reputation to maintain.
