Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that it has recently been reported that Genius Ginimbi Kadungure, the rich Zimbwean businessman will be remembered with one last lavish party before he is buried. Ginimbi died earlier this month after a horror car crash in the early hours of the morning.

The party is will be held in Zimbabwe at his luxury Domboshava residence, about 30km on the northern outskirts of Harare. According to instructions on the invitation to the event, guests have been asked to bring their own alcohol - something they never had to do when Ginimbe was alive.

The party doesn't come as a surprise since Ginimbe has always been a party lover, sparing no cost at buying the best and most expensive alcohol for himself and those around him. He is also famously known for finding himself surrounded by important business people and beautiful socialites.
