Diamond’s wife Zari announces death of her ex-husband Ivan Semwanga

Flamboyant Ugandan businessman and socialite Ivan Semwanga, who was recently rushed to a South African hospital in critical condition, has died.

Semwanga, the ex-husband to socialite and businesswoman Zari Hassan, is said to have died Wedneday morning at Steve Biko Academic Hospital in Pretoria South Africa.

Ms Zari announced the death of the father of her three kids on social media early Thursday morning.


“God loves those that are special and that’s exactly who you were and I guess that’s why he wanted you to himself. You have touched and helped thousands, you did wonders and I remember you telling me “life is too short Zee let me live it to the fullest”, this very dark hour it makes sense why you always said those words to me. To your sons, you were a hero-some kind of superman. Anyone who has ever been in your presence knows what a charming person you were. You will be missed and remembered in so many ways. You were IVAN THE GREAT!” Ms Zari wrote on Instagram.

It had been 11 days from the time the 40-year-old, popularly known as the president of Rich Gang, was admitted at the hospital and put on life support machines.

His condition deteriorated Wednesday morning.
