The mother said she is not interested in Genius’s wealth. She does not even intent on pursuing it for her son who she sired with the late socialite, Genius Kadungure in 2011:

“I was born in a family with everything that I needed, so we are ok. We don’t need anything, so please just leave us alone,” she said last week.

They met in 2006, coincidentally, the same year Ginimbi met with Zodwa. They had a son together in 2011, but, Ms Miyedzo Madondo says their relationship reportedly collapsed after the birth of the child.

The death of Genius Kadungure is increasingly shining a spotlight on his once-secretive private life, and skeletons are beginning to tumble from the closet after revelations he fathered a son with a Gutu-based businesswoman.

The Kadungure family members had earlier denied knowledge of the love child.

“As far as I know, Genius did not leave behind any children. Last time I heard through rumours that he had children everywhere, but I was never introduced to any of his children,” Mr Anderson Kadungure, father to Genius, said recently.

Last week, they unanimously accepted an unsigned will recently filed at the Master of High Court, which does not cover the nine-year-old (name withheld).

Her father, Elias Madondo, was a well-known businessman in Masvingo, who owned a hotel and farm, among his many business interests.

Miyedzo claims Genius was not initially involved in the upbringing of his son, but later on warmed up to him and began spoiling him with expensive gifts.

The former union between Ginimbi and another businesswoman Ms Zodwa Mkandla is one that has been acknowledged by the Kadungure family.
