Ginimbi To Be Released Within 48hrs,

Looks like Ginimbi will be having Shampopo this coming weekend at his high-class night club Dreams.

People close to Ginimbi have confirmed with Zimbolivenews that he will be released on bail in the next 48 hours.  

Ginimbi has been locked up for 7 days and has been denied bail 2 times so far.  Once Ginimbi is released he plans on having a huge celebration at his nightclub Dreams 

The judge handling Ginimbi’s case had been busy to look into his appeal but is now back in town and will hear the case within the next 48hrs.  Ginimbis lawyers have also reached out to some Political leaders to help him out and they had used their influence to make sure Ginimbi gets out as soon as possible.

He was arrested this week facing charges of conniving with a Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) officer, Alexander Gumbo to doctor documents undervaluing his imported top-of-the-range vehicle in a bid to evade paying duty.

Mberewere ruled Kadungure had a propensity to commit more crimes since he committed the offence while on bail over similar allegations.

He was arrested in 2018 facing charges of duping the government $3.5 million in unpaid taxes. The case is pending and he is on a $2 000 bail.

The accused has propensity to commit more crimes since he allegedly committed the offence while on remand for a similar offence,” said Mberewere before remanding Kadungure in remand prison to February 20.

Kadungure is facing fraud charges and ZIMRA is the complainant. According to the State, Kadungure bought his Bentley for $3 281 784, but he allegedly lied that the vehicle was worth $1 million.

“In 2019 accused went to LSM distributors and bought a Bentley for $3 281 784,” said Prosecutor George Manokore.

“When he arrived at the Beitbridge Post Zimbabwe side, accused connived with his agent Alexander Gumbo and forged the vehicle’s value to read $1. 9 million.

“They then scanned the forged documents before uploading them on the ZIMRA system for duty processing on December 22 last year,” the court heard.

It is alleged that ZIMRA acted upon the misrepresentation to charge duty of US$81 000 instead of US$139 665 leading to an actual prejudice of $58 665 to ZIMRA for the unpaid duty.
