Inset is a mourner seen trying to get a glimpse of Ivan Semwanga's body, but it was not possible as the coffin was sealed. It was decided that friends and fans should remain with the memories of Ivan when still alive as opposed to when he was dead. The coffin was tightly guarded at all times.

In the typical Rich Gang Style, mourners dropped money in the grave to give back to Ivan Don. However, the highest value note was a 20k note and not the 50k that he used to give out clearly confirming, he was gone.
