Socialite and businessman Genius Kadungure has sent tongues wagging in Harare after acquiring a 2016 Rolls Royce Wraith that retails for over $300,000 overseas (landed cost bound to be almost double that) becoming the first Zimbabwean to land such a vehicle. Eat that Sir Wicknell!
A 4 seater coupe based on the Rolls Royce Ghost chassis it has a 6,500 cc engine, V12 turbo and 8 speed gearbox.
Known for his flamboyance, hosting a three day birthday party splashing over US$17,000, then flying 20 friends to Gaborone, Botswana for his 28th birthday, gobbling another $32,000. More recently hosting as many as ’10 celebrities from across Africa’ at another all-white party in South Africa’s upmarket suburb of Sandton.
Though owning a gas company, Pioneer Gases that has setup in both Zimbabwe and Botswana, Kadungure has a pending fraud case after it is said that he swindled Zanu Pf MP Dexter Nduna’s company and a ‘Kadoma-based miner’ of over R1,5m. The matter is yet to be finalised due to “extraterritorial challenges” that the State is facing in trying to gather evidence.
