Anderson Kadungure father to the late Ginimbi said he was not surprised when he learnt that his son had died in a car accident saying Ginimbi was a well-known speedster:
I received a call that he had been involved in an accident. We know he used to speed on the roads, so we were not shocked as the person who was phoning was crying…, he said.
