Ivan Ssemwanga’s family launches fresh bid to oust Zari from managing ex husband’s property in South Africa

Family feud is another headache Zari Hassan will have to deal with despite the pain of losing her mother and her baby daddy in a span of two months.

After Ivan was buried sometimes in May, a committee of four members was formed to determine how his assets were to be managed. The committee agreed that Zari was to manage Ivan’s schools that include Brooklyn College in South Africa.

They also decided that Zari should live with the kids in one of Ivan’s houses in South Africa while the other house should be rented out to provide financial support to the family.​ The committee was to execute its duties until Ivan’s three children turn 18.

Ugandan news outlet – BigEye reports that one of the late tycoon’s close relatives traveled to South Africa recently and has vowed to petition the South African authorities to claim his estate as the rightful heir.

Apparently Ivan’s schools and property in South Africa were registered under ownership of Ali Senyomo, an alias that Ivan Ssemwanga adopted and was using to conduct businessman in South Africa following his ban there.

It is this technicality that the said relative is hoping to exploit, even when it will expose the fraud committed by Ivan and risks the family losing the entire property.
