Ginimbi’s new Bentley has been seized by the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority who say the flashy motor was undervalued.

Zimra officers stormed his Domboshawa mansion and grabbed the vehicle. An angry Ginimbi has rushed to the courts to seek the release of the Bentley.

“In the interim, I seek an interdict prohibiting the first respondent (Zimra) and her officers from seizing or embargoing my vehicle on the basis that the duty paid was insufficient without first seeking an order from this court to that effect,” said Ginimbi.
Ginimbi said he bought the vehicle in South Africa for R1.9 million.

“Having purchased the vehicle and paid for it in full, I caused it to be imported into Zimbabwe through the Beitbridge border post. I attach relevant documents from the cargo carrier and from South African authorities pertaining to the clearing and movement of the vehicle… as the vehicle had been in a South African bonded warehouse, it had to be cleared by the South African authorities…

“At the border, I appeared personally and filled in Form No 52A which is a customs duty declaration form… I declared that the vehicle ought to be assessed duty on its purchase price. The customs officers responsible inspected the vehicle and they assessed duty in terms of that figure and an invoice for customs duty and VAT was issued.”
He did not reveal how much he paid.
