Juliet Kadungure was the eldest sibling in the Kadungure family, followed by Genius, the late Andrew (who passed away in 2019), and the youngest, Nelia Kadungure. This means that Nelia is now the sole surviving sibling, following the deaths of her three older siblings.
Genius Kadungure, 36, and popular influencer Michelle Amuli, 26, – better known as Mimi Moana – were among four people who died in the collision on Borrowdale road in the Zimbabwean capital Harare.
The other two victims, also passengers in the Rolls Royce Wraith, were Limumba Karim – a Malawian national wanted in his home country for fraud and a woman from Mozambique named only as ‘Elisha’.
The flashy businessman, known affectionately as Ginimbi, was reportedly thrown from his vehicle after a head-on crash with a Honda in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The Rolls Royce reportedly then hit a tree and caught fire with the others trapped inside.
Zimbabwean police confirmed in a statement that three people had been ‘burnt when the vehicle caught fire after it clashed with a Honda Fit head-on as the driver overtook another car.’
Just hours earlier, Kadungure posted a video to Instagram of him climbing into the car to leave his mansion in the village of Domboshava to enjoy a night out at Dreams Night Club – one of his businesses.
In the footage, he can be seen dancing and saying: ‘We are going to pop champagne. It’s going to be champagne showers tonight.’
The night out was reportedly to celebrate influencer Amuli’s 26th birthday.
Kadungure was well known for flaunting his luxurious lifestyle on social media, often posting videos of himself with fast cars in his palatial home.
Last month, he celebrated his birthday with a lavish all-white party, similar to white-themed bashes he has held in the past.
Kadungure started his first business aged 17 and his wealth has been estimated at anything from £7million to £76million, according to the BBC.
