The businesswoman who says she is the late Ginimbi’s baby mama was left heartbroken when he milked her dry and ran away to another woman.

Ginimbi had a son in 2011 with a Gutu-based businesswoman, Miyedzo “Miye” Madondo afterthe two met in in 2006 when Miyedzo returned from New Zealand.

“During those days, the guy was broke. He drove Miyedzo’s cars (BMW X5 and Dodge Nitro) and used her money to buy expensive clothes.

“But we loved him because he was kind and generous. From whatever he got from Miyedzo, he would find something to give us. Ginimbi always had exciting ideas.

“The only thing that saddens us is that he milked our sister dry and ran away. It is more painful to think that he went on to enjoy that money with other women,” a relative told The Sunday Mail in Gutu.

Miyedzo herself refused to open up during an interview at her farm in Masvingo. “I hope this visit is personal and not about Genius because that is a closed chapter. Maybe someday I will tell you all about it, but not now, I just can’t.”

She referred questions to her aunt who said “It is not a secret – everyone knows. Even if you ask people around the village and at the (Gutu) Growth Point. It’s known that Ginimbi is the father of our boy.

“I was introduced to Genius right here, on this compound, in this hut. He was here all the time. After dumping Miyedzo for another woman, he later tried to be involved in his son’s life.

“We wanted to attend the funeral but the Genius he had become was different from the Genius we knew. We feared his relatives could be hostile as some were likely to think we were after his money.”

A former driver at Kadungure’s Pioneer Gases, who only wanted to be identified as Mike, claimed that Miyedzo also invested in the gas company.

“Miyedzo thought the investment was registered in both their names but she didn’t know that Ginimbi had taken everything.
