VICE-PRESIDENT Constantino Chiwenga’s wife Mary was among the mourners who paid their last respects to the late Andrew Kadungure, younger brother to flamboyant businessman and socialite Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure.
Andrew died in the early hours of New Year’s eve and was laid to rest at his rural home in Domboshava yesterday.
He was 28.
H-Metro reports that scores of people including socialites, business executives, dealers and the Vice President’s wife, Marry Chiwenga, were among mourners who paid their last respects to Andrew.
Ginimbi said he was still in pain over the death of his younger brother.
“I’m still in pain that Andrew is no more, at the moment I am not in a position to say much because I am still mourning my young brother,” he said.
Speaking at the event, Mrs Chiwenga described the death of Andrew as heartbreaking.
“We have been robbed one of our own, to me Andrew was a son because his mother is my aunt.
“Though we are mourning there is need for us to celebrate his life.
“The last time I saw him he was wearing stylish jeans and the boil on his head seemed to be getting better but it was God’s will to take him and when God takes, he doesn’t consult anyone.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Genius’ wife Zodwa for looking after her mother-in- law as well as her brother-in-law Andrew.
Ginimbi’s friends like rapper Mudiwa Hood, Chief Albert, Eddie Kebab were some of the notable faces who attended the burial, which attracted hundreds of mourners.
