Zari Hassan’s ex husband Ivan Ssemwanga succumbed to death on Thursday, one that has caught many by surprise.

Zari who dated Ivan for 12 years broke the news on social media. 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 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! Rest in peace DON…”
