Zodwa Mkandla at Ginimbi’s home
For the longest time, the relationship between the late Zimbabwean socialite Genius Kadungure aka Ginimbi and South African businesswoman Zodwa ‘Zozo’ Mkandla has always been murky and vague.
Zozo who is now considered the official widow of Ginimbi mourned him on social media.
She wrote, “Go well my soulmate no one will ever understand what we shared Ginimbi,no one can replace you REST IN PEACE.”

In another post, she shared a video of his funeral with the message,
“Rest In Peace my guy.”
Zozo was instrumental in propelling Ginimbi into the corporate world.
Their on-off-on again relationship was fodder for tabloids. In a 2018 court case where Ginimbi and flamboyant businessman Wicknell Chivayo were accused of fraud.

Zozo revealed that she was actually married to Ginimbi saying,
“He is my husband, we stay together and Wicknell Chivayo even phoned me saying, ‘sister I’m sorry I dragged Genius into this case.”
However, she had to admit that their relationship was going through a rough patch that time and they were separated.
“He is my husband, but we are on separation. We are on separation and we don’t stay under the same roof anymore.”
Zozo also admitted in court that she still loved Ginimbi and they had joint assets.
