The late Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure will be buried at his Domboshava mansion, according to a family spokesman last night.
Burial is set for Saturday.
Ginimbi had, for the past month, been telling his relatives of his wish to be buried at his lavish homestead, which he also wanted converted into a tourist resort.
Mourners are gathered at Ginimbi’s father’s home while security is tight at the mansion amid genuine fears of looting if people are allowed before relatives and close friends put away all valuables.
Noddy Kadungure, 43, said it had become Ginimbi’s “daily song.”
“Mukomana wacho angaakutoita seaiziva nezvenguva yerufu rwake nekuti ndidzo dzanga dzangori nyaya mazuva ose apfuura aya,” said Kadungure.
“It was his wish to be given a befitting send off and he took his time to inform us how to fulfill it.
“Ginimbi will be buried at his homestead where he is expecting us to make it a resort place where locals and foreigners would visit.
“He told us to build a statue at the homestead and also wanted us to allow all his friends to witness the burial.
“Because of that we are expecting his body by Friday after postmortem carried and bury him Saturday.
“Mourners will be gathered at his father’s house to allow undertakers prepare the grave.
“Family members and few others will be allowed to enter the gate to allow undertakes do their work without interference,” said Kadungure.
