The late Zimbabwean businessman and socialite Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure’s long-serving housekeeper has spoken out on the issue of the use of juju, snakes and sacred rooms. Fatima Chikowore who served as Ginimbi’s maid and housekeeper for the past 15 years decided to address the matter after seeing numerous allegations on social media regarding how Kadungure got so wealthy.
Zimbabwe and South Africa social media has been inundated with discussions on occultism, particularly the use of snakes and juju to become wealthy, following the death of Ginimbi. Ginimbi together with socialite Mimi Moana and 2 other associates died on Sunday after the businessman’s Rolls Royce Wraith went off the road and exploded after colliding with a Honda Fit. All four occupants of the vehicle died on the spot, with 3 of them being trapped in the burning car.
However, it did not take long after the fiery accident before some social media users started offering their theories on what could have happened. Some blamed occultism for the deaths while others alleged that the businessman was into sacrifices and rituals.
South African author and former slay queen Jackie Phamatse added fuel to the fire when she suggested that the deaths of Ginimbi and 3 associates in a horrific traffic accident, were a result of sacrifices and wealth rituals gone wrong. Jackie claimed that some wealthy people trade their souls for money. She said that the trade comes with caveats which limit the amount of time that people get to enjoy their wealth.
After noting the prevalence of the conversations alleging that Ginimbi had juju, snakes and sacred rooms at his Domboshava mansion just outside the capital, Ginimbi’s housekeeper decided to set the record straight. She said that the issue has been burning up inside her and that she has been looking for an opportunity to set the record straight.
Fatima Chikowore insisted that Genius Kadungure was very open about his possessions and that there were no sacred rooms at his mansion as claimed by some. Chikowere said that she was free to access every part of the property and had never come across snakes, juju or any other paraphernalia commonly associated with the occult.
She went on to say that her late boss was a very hard working man who seized opportunities, which is how he had grown his fortune.

We hope that this puts the matter to rest.
Ginimbi will be buried at his Domboshava Mansion on Saturday. However, the police have banned the all-white party which had been scheduled for Friday to send Ginimbi off in style.
