The matter in which the late socialite Genius ‘Ginimbi’ Kadungure’s family is challenging the administering of his estate by lawyer Patricia Darangwa failed to start on Wednesday.

A fresh urgent chamber application for joinder was filed by one of the businessman’s close friends-Nomatter ‘Kit Kat’ Zinyengere.

It was brought to the court’s attention that Kit Kat had, on October 19, withdrawn his application challenging the release of the late Ginimbi’s Lamborghin into his possession.

However, according to the latest developments Kit Kat now wants to be part of proceedings in the main matter where the family is contesting the validity of the unsigned will.

Through his lawyer, Kit Kat filed the urgent chamber application on Wednesday which was however, consented to by both the Kadungures and Darangwa.

As part of the agreed facts, the Kadungure family led by their lawyer, proposed that Kit Kat be allowed to be part of the main matter just to bring it to its finality.

“Our consent to the joinder is without prejudice because Kit Kat does not appear on any document or purported will of the late Genius Kadungure.

“We still retain our rights to challenge his identity in the administration of the estate,” submitted the lawyer.

By consent, Justice Amy Tsanga postponed the matter to November 26.

“The applicants and respondents have consented to the joinder of Nomatter ‘Kit Kat’ Zinyengere for the purpose of bringing the main matter to its finality.

“Zinyengere must also file and serve his opposition papers by Friday whilst all the respondents to respond by November 10.

“Zinyengere must also file his heads of argument by November 15 whilst any party wishing to file supplementary heads of argument must do so on or before November 19.

“The matter has been postponed to November 26,” ruled Justice Amy Tsanga.

In the main matter, the family led by Juliet, Nelia and their father Anderson Kadungure want an order stopping any administration of the unsigned will presented to them by Darangwa on November 25.

The unsigned will was presented to the family by Darangwa soon after Ginimbi’s death.

The family is expressing dissatisfaction and anxiety over the genuineness or the origin of the will.

Ginimbi died after his Rolls Royce collided head-on with a Honda Fit on his way home along Liberation Legacy Way on November 8 last year. H Metro
