Ginimbi, as he is popularly known, allegedly also duped Kwekwe based brothers Enock and Evon Gatawa and had pleaded not guilty to two counts of fraud.

In acquitting Ginimbi, Harare Magistrate Morgan Nemadire said there is no evidence directly linking Kadungure to the offense and that the State failed to prove its case beyond reasonable doubt.
