Last Sunday night during fallen Ivan Ssemwanga’s vigil at his home in Muyenga, his friends and family set up a development trust fund to cater for his children.
Ssemwanga had three sons from his ex-wife Zari Hassan who has had a feud with late Ssemwanga’s family over the deceased’s property.
This has come as a relief that the children’s future will be secured since the conflict over Ssemwanga’s properties is still going on between the family.
Club Guvnor proprietor Charlie Lubega who fronted the idea for the fund contributed Shs5m and also gave the family condolences of Shs10M. By midnight, the fund had a total of Shs 20M. Lubega spoke highly of the deceased, saying he was a pillar in their business and that they have lost a very big client.
“Ivan Semwanga can never be replaced. He was a one of a kind client, individually and as Rich Gang. We have hosted the Rich gang party for a very long time and those who have always attended can witness that he was one of our biggest customers. We are really going to miss him,” Lubega said.
Many of the friends, relatives and well-wishers gathered at the vigil and shared his sentiments and expressed solidarity with the family. Among those were Godfrey Kirumira, Sam Bagenda, Bad Black, Jose Chameleon, Ragga Dee, Jack Pemba and Nabila Naggayi among others.
