Just days after the burial of flashy Ugandan businessman Ivan Ssemwanga, his former wife Zari Hassan has spoken about the family dispute over his property.
In an interview with millardayo.com the Ugandan socialite said Ssemwanga’s property in Uganda has a loan to be repaid after which it will be determined way forward.
Zari steered clear of who will be the heir of the property adding that the important thing is that her children get to be provided for their basic needs such as food, education, home and medical bills.
Asked about her reaction to the statement made by Ssemwanga’s uncle Herbert Luyinda that she was not entitled to inheriting any property she said:
“I was just calm because there is paper work and not even someone’s uncle can just wake up and say he wants this. On top of that you have to know that since this guy is gone but he has kids they are next in line of his legacy and as a grown-up he can always look for his own legacy. I think after realizing that he apologized,” said Zari.
“People are saying there is beef between us but there is no beef between me and that family. Whether I like them or not they are my kids’ family, I would never fight them. I need them in the future. The kids will grow and maybe sometimes I will fail I need to call them and tell them right now we are broke I need someone to pay school fees or one of the boys is getting married where are the uncles and grandfathers. I would never fight them she added.
