Zimbabwe: Ginimbi’s vintage car siezed

The flamboyat businessman and socialite Genius Kadungure had his newly imported US$200 000 Bentley Continental GT motor vehicle siezed by Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) after it emerged that it had an irregular duty import.

The socialite businessman also known as Ginimbi in some circles had his latest fancy vehicle besieged at his Dombashava mansion on 11 January. It is alleged that he has not committed the payment of requisite customs duty and value-added tax (VAT).

“In the interim, I seek an interdict prohibiting the first respondent (Zimra) and her officers from seizing or embargoing my vehicle on the basis that the duty paid was insufficient without first seeking an order from this court to that effect,” Kadungure said in his founding affidavit.

Kadungure is ranked among the top richest popular figures in Zimbabwe and has earned his lifestyle in purchasing most expensive cars with his uptown Dreams Night Club clasffied among the best in the continent.
