Thousands bid farewell to Genius Kadungure aka Boss Ginimbi. The streets of central Harare were jam-packed with curious onlookers as the body of Ginimbi was taken from a city funeral parlour to his Dreams Nightclub on Kwame Nkrumah Avenue before it was taken to his home where it lay in state overnight ahead of burial today.

Thousands of mourners yesterday lined the streets of Harare to get a glimpse of the flamboyant funeral cortège, as the body of the late businessman and socialite Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure was taken to his Domboshava house where hundreds more lay in wait.
