These are indeed sorrowful days to the family and friends of the late socialite and business man Ivan Semwanga who was the boss of the Rich Gang until the day of his death in the wee hours of Thursday morning the 25th of May 2017.
The late who passed on at the Pretoria, South Africa based Steve Biko Academic hospital following a stroke attack was announced by his Ex-wife Zari Hassan who is also the mother of his three sons. Since then social is on fire with the public passing on their condolences messages and among them is King Lawrence, a member of the Rich Gang.
Lawrence who most times was always spotted with Ivan especially at events, took to Facebook where he shared photos of him and the deceased and accompanied them with a message saying;
“To my fallen brother ,hero , soldier my role model mentor advisor business partner hero I even don’t know how to express how you have been to me bit I know you have gone to live with angels in heaven coz your we’re God sent . Ivan Don may God grant you forgiveness in whatever went wrong and may your soul rest in eternal peace. Rip brother you have left me in tears indeed. Am gonna miss the plays we had the joke and all the fun.”
Together with his Rich Gang members, Ivan was known to host lavish parties every end of year at Club Guvnor where the three would blow money to the revellers and this is one of the things the public knew and will remember about him, not forgetting the pompous appearances he used to make at the different social events around town.
The last event Ivan was at is the 16th edition of the quarterly Blankets and Wine alongside King Lawrence. Chano8 joins Lawrence to once again say Rest in Peace Ivan and burial arranges are ongoing at his ancestral home in Kayunga.
