Ugandan born-South African based socialite, Ivan Semwanga, has passed away.
Though rumour of his death had gripped Social media all day yesterday, Semwanga, according to fellow socialite and ex-wife, Zari Hassan, passed on in the wee hours.
Zari, mother of Semwanga’s three boys confirmed this on her Facebook page.
In a touching post, she wrote; “God loves those that are special and that’s exactly who you were & 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”.
She then carried on with breaking the sad news to confirm a fear.
“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,” she ended the touching post with an exclamation.
“You will be missed and remembered in so many ways. You were IVAN THE GREAT!”
Pictures of Semwanga, in a critical condition after reportedly going into cardiac arrest have been making rounds for nearly a week now.
