Chaos Over Control Rights Of Ginimbi’s Botswana Empire

The late Genius “Ginimbi” Kadungure’s Botswana oil and gas empire is reportedly in limbo after the Botswana Energy Regulatory Authority (BERA) ordered the closure of his Quick Gases (Pty) Ltd.


According to Botswana’s Mmegi, the action by the authority is a result of a wrangle over control of Ginimbi’s assets that has since spilled into the Courts.

BERA spokesman, Tshepang Monare, said they had many reports of people failing to refill their gas cylinders belonging to Quick Gases. He said they had established that the chaos was a result of the ongoing court case.

“We had to step in and make sure they assist customers while awaiting a permanent solution.”

It is reported that there is a fight between the Kadungure family appointed executor, Patricia Darangwa and Leo Chiweshe, whom Ginimbi had appointed to manage the Botswana operations through power of attorney.

As a result, clients are stuck as they are reportedly failing to refill gas cylinders distributed by Ginimbi’s company at other dealerships and BERA last Friday advised the public to take back the Quick Gases cylinders to the company’s facility in Pilane where they would exchange them for more user-friendly cylinders.

Moreso, it is reported that Chiweshe refused to meet and hand over the control of the business empire to Ginimbi’s family and their appointed executor.

With the help of the Ginimbi’s family, it is further alleged that Darangwa, is seeking to get Chiweshe’s power of attorney nullified as the two companies, Quick Gases (Pty) Ltd and Matiflex Oils (Pty) Ltd are now declared as not having directors following Ginimbi’s death. 

She also wants Chiweshe to give an account of the affairs of the companies and that he be interdicted and restrained from interfering with the executor’s duties, considering that the power of attorney he was acting on became invalid when Ginimbi died.

Ginimbi died last year in November in a horrific accident after his Rolls Royce Wraith collided with a Honda Fit en route to his home.
