  • Kadungure to settle out of court

FLAMBOYANT socialite and businessperson Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure’s tax evasion and smuggling cases on Tuesday were postponed to March 20 as he was yet to sign an out-of-court settlement deal with the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (Zimra).

The socialite agreed a US$400 000 monthly out-of-court settlement deal with Zimra to clear his tax liabilities of over US$3.4 million.

Kadungure today (Tuesday) appeared before magistrate Hosea Mujaya at the Harare Magistrates’ Courts on routine remand.

When he appeared in court on February 29, Kadungure was represented by his lawyer, Jonathan Samkange.

The prominent Harare lawyer told the deputy chief magistrate, Chrispen Mberewere, that his client was on the verge of reaching an out-of-court settlement with the State.

The deal, according to Samkange, was only yet to be activated by both parties.

Kadungure was in February arrested for fabricating receipts for the purchase of his ‘undervalued’ Rolls Royce vehicle which he imported from South Africa.

In the past, the socialite was also dragged to court on allegations of forging the purchase papers for his a Bentley vehicle.
