The Zimbabwe Tourism Authority says it will meet with its ambassador, Genius Kadungure before making a decision after he was arrested and locked up.

The Ginimbi arrest as well as lack of funding forced the ZTA to postpone the Harare carnival yet again. Ginimbi was nabbed for fraud and tax evasion. He is now out on bail. The ZTA was roundly criticised after Ginimbi was appointed Tourism Ambassador for three years.

ZTA head corporate affairs Godfrey “Chief” Koti  said he was not able to comment before having a pending meeting with Ginimbi.

“I am afraid I won’t be able to respond appropriately today, we are out in Mutare at the ministry’s strategic planning workshop. I am not in a position to respond appropriately right away. Let me engage my superiors as well,” he told the Standard.

ZTA chief executive Karikoga Kaseke said they settled for him not because he is a businessman, but because he is a socialite.
