Bryan White has changed the game leading some to flee the country after failing to measure up. Jack Pemba after being belittled a few days back by the new tycoon has decided to relocate to Dubai. SK Mbuga is equally working very hard to verify his Facebook account following the very many fake accounts. On the other hand, the Rich Gang Crew is all set for their December 19 Rich Gang Party after replacing the late Ivan Semwanga...Read More

Zari missing her ex-husband, Ivan Semwanga
"Thank you Diamond Platnumz for allowing me mourn the death of my ex husband and be there for the boys as they needed me. Thank you so much for understanding and supporting us you are the best.."
One thing about life is that nothing is permanent, everything is temporary. Life is always about enjoying every moment and every part of your life because it's not permanent. At some point, things fall apart either by a divorce or death. I repeat nothing is permanent that is why you got to enjoy every moment of your life.
Death robbed you from us, but I strongly believe you are in a better place now that you are with God. Your physical presence will be missed, but you will forever be remembered. Till we meet again, Rest in internal peace Ivan The Don.
Allow me to thank everyone who has been here for my family during this trying time. God bless you.
He was the best father to our boys, although they spent only a few years with him, he always made time for them besides his tight schedule as if he knew that his time was very limited in this world.
The picture proves how happy he was during this day, those were one of the best moments of course we part ways but memories don't die they last forever.
It was the best day of our journey, still remember it very well like it was yesterday. Rest in Peace Ivan the Great.

Semwanga Hummer swerves off the road
When the vehicles had moved a few yards past Victoria Mall in Entebbe, police cops stopped the motorcade to allow a police advance vehicle to lead the way.
As they set off for Kampala, a Hummer pick up lost control just around the National Social Security Office in Entebbe, it swerved to the left and then to right, but since its a Hummer, it was business as usual, the driver just joined the convoy. Luck was on their side as there was no vehicle from the opposite direction and the vehicle behind had left some good space.
While in Muyenga, a few women tried to approach Zari, but were stopped just in time. Jack Pemba was by Zari's side and on being given the mic, this is what he had to say;
"All we need is the love and support for the boys and Zari, the whole country and everybody, let's be behind Zari, they are the only one's that matter at this time.."
Meanwhile, Diamomd Platnumz who was performing in Kenya on Sunday confirmed that he will be in Kampala on Monday. Its not yet clear if he will attend the burial on Tuesday.
The body was first taken to the A-Plus funeral home for treatment and by 8:00pm it was arriving in Muyenga. Requiem mass will be tomorrow (May 29) at Namirembe Cathedral starting at 11:00am.

Zari tightly guarded right from the airportAds
The South Africa Airways flight that had the remains of Ivan Semwanga touched down at 3:00pm. It was unbelievable for the relatives, fans and friends who had been waiting at the airport for over six hours. Beer was served as they patiently waited.
Singer Chameleone, former Finance Minister, Syda Bumba, and businessman SK Mbuga who provided over 8 posh rides were among the mourners waiting at the airport.
"He is kind, he does not discriminate, he always donated to the poor," Were some of the remarks from the mourners. Minutes later, Zari who was tightly guarded by muscle-men clad in black t-shirts and jeans came out. The mom of five was in creme shoes and a black outfit and sheds, they were quickly whisked to a waiting vehicle.

The Ugandan community in South Africa has held as many as four vigils to mourn their fallen Chairman, Ivan Semwanga.
On Saturday Morning, to be exact at 8:00am, there will be a requiem mass at St Michael and all Angels church and at 12:00pm the body will leave for the airport just in time for the Ugandan flight on Sunday morning.
Kampala Entebbe highway is going to be flooded with posh rides and bikers to accompany the socialite from Entebbe airport to his residence in Muyenga.
"Read so many good things about this man even though I ain't got a clue who he is...the moral of the story is let's leave a good legacy...may his soul rest in perfect peace Amen," One wrote.
Renovations at his upcountry home in Kayunga where he will finally be laid to rest are going on smoothly. Inset is his Muyenga crib parking lot with some of his rides.

Ivan Semwanga burial program out
The body of Ivan Semwanga will arrive at his home in Pretoria on Friday, May 26 and on Sunday afternoon, Zari and the children will come with the body to Uganda.
Later in the day, they will proceed to Kayunga where the late Ivan Semwanga will be buried.
Ivan's both parents died when he was little and according to a family member, Muhammed Pinto, it's common for members of their family to die of High Blood Pressure.
He also went on to say that in their family, they have enough money so it's not true that there are any family members fighting for Ivan's wealth.
Pinto added that even Ivan's schools in South Africa will be managed by Zari.

Diamond Platnumz mourns Zari's ex-hubby with a burning candle
The death of South Africa based Ugandan socialite, Ivan Semwanga, has left many in East and South Africa heart broken. His ex-wife and mother to his three sons, Zari, is in love with Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz.
On learning of the breaking news, Platnumz dashed to his wall to post a pic of a burning candle captioned as; 'Mbele Yako, Nyuma Yetu...." meaning; "Where you are is where we are coming.."
"You are the only person to comfort your partner during this period as a lot will be said, do not let her cry alone." One wrote.
Diamond Platnumz is now a dad of five by default. Ivan Semwanga has left three sons behind, the eldest being 13, he had a touching message for his dad [Message from Ivan Semwanga's son, Raphael].
On the other hand, Zari and Platnumz are blessed with two children, Tiffah and Nillan in just the three years they've been together.
Ivan Semwanga was confirmed dead this morning by Zari. It's still not clear whether he will be buried in South Africa or Uganda, the family is yet to release an official program.Ads

Touching Message from Ivan Semwanga's son, Raphael
"It hurts to think that you are not here anymore. Although I can’t help but smile with tears in my eyes to think of how we cherished each and every moment of our lives together; I will miss you Dady and I cant stop crying anymore when i think of you Dady @ivandon," Raphael wrote on IG after his dad's passing.
Zari and Ivan were blessed with three sons and they've always been with their dad when their mother is in Tanzania with new lover, Diamond Platnumz. It's such a blow. Zari and Ivan separated three years back and within those years, she has two children in the new relationship.

This morning, it was confirmed that socialite Ivan Semwanga is no more. He passed on at Steve Biko Academy Hospital where he was being treated for the last 12 days.
The one thing that comes to mind when you mention Ivan Semwanga, is money. He loved giving it out and in his own words he said; "No one has ever become poor by giving.."
He did this all the time and his last days in Uganda, he was giving out goodies and cash to underprivileged kids in Nsambya.
Ivan was born on December 12, 1977 and died on May 25, 2017. He was to celebrate his 40th birthday this December that would have doubled as the Rich Gang Party.

Zari confirms ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga, is dead
"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 Zee 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!," Zari noted.
Ivan Semwanga, 39, was in Uganda less than two weeks back.
Bebe Cool - My deepest condolences to you and your family. May Allah see you through this moment.
Chameleone - "God creates and takes what is his!!! May God have mercy on you my friend and strengthen your Family and we your friends Rest in peace Ivan."
Ed Cheune - "You spread happiness for all the years when you were here with us all. Now it is God’s turn to give you all the happiness in return as you go holding his hand.Rest in peace my dear brother Ivan Semwanga."

What caused Ivan Semwanga's heart attack
Tycoon Ivan Semwanga in the days leading up to the attack was in Uganda and his last gig was the Blankets and Wine event. The Rich Gang President then went checking on one of his properties in Kampala only to find new occupants and on demanding to know who they were, they produced documents and land titles that showed they were the new owners.
Ivan was not aware of such a transaction. It's then that he started developing a severe headache that also affected his day to day activities, in the end, he had to charter a plane to South Africa only to end up at Steve Biko Academy Hospital.
He was diagnosed with a heart attack that was caused by a blood clot. Over the weekend, the dad of three was operated on and he's yet to recover from the operation. The house issue and the other problems that have been eating him up lately triggered the current situation.
Meanwhile, Zari's fans and the entire social media is locked up in debating over who should manage his properties between Zari and Ivan's relatives should the worst happen.

Zari appeals to Ivan's visitors not take pics
Zari - "This is an announcement: Kindly not Ivan Semwanga is not allowed visitors any more, he is in critical condition and his privacy as a patient is being invaded. We will appreciate if you continue praying for him. Stay blessed!."
It's now 10 days since tycoon Ivan Semwanga was admitted at Steve Beko Academic Hospital (SBAH) in Pretoria and two days after his head operation. Zari and other close relatives are by his bedside, however, she has to occasionally leave the hospital to go and check on the children back home who are equally worried about their dad's health.
It's during that time that some visitors are taking pics and circulating on social media. Visitors have now been stopped from checking on Ivan until further notice. Zari and the children are the only one's allowed to access the ward where Ivan is being treated.
Among those stranded outside the hospital are thousands of students from his Brooklyn City College schools that are spread over 8 states in South Africa that include; Pretoria, Johannesburg, Polokwane etc. Most of them are in shock and in tears over the condition of their principal. It's not clear if Zari was still the CEO of the colleges after she dumped Ivan to move in with TZ singer, Diamond Platnumz.
In a screen shot from Zari to social media enthusiast, Henry, the mom of five asks that he should not post the pics that are being sent to him, but he also demands to know who is taking the pics and yet she's by his side, Zari noted that it was being done at the time she was taking breaks.

Ivan Semwanga's head operation pic goes viral
A pic of tycoon Ivan Semwanga in hospital after the operation has found it's way on the internet. In the pic, Ivan is seen with half his hair cut off and a deep wound on the head which was closed with a running interlocking stitch from one side of the ear to the other.
"Seen Ivan Semwanga's hospital pic and my eyes started to drip. Whoever took that pic and shared it to heartless bloggers, you are such an idiot for psychologically torturing the viewers. Dear Ivan be strong, hung on, we are praying every second and minute to God for your quick recovery. May God heal you," South Africa based, Stella Nankya, of the StarQT label noted.
"Your absence is disturbing me my brother and a friend. I can't wait to see you feeling well, I know many are praying for your quick recovery and longing for the day you will come home, may God 's peace and comfort surround you and his unfailing care help you recuperate.Get well soon @Ivandon," Best friend, ED Cheune with whom they were hanging with at the last Blankets and Wine tweeted yesterday.

Zari's son, Nillan, ill as Ex-Hubby undergoes operation
The look on Zari's face says it all, it's tight for her. Just as she was taking good care of her ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga, who developed major heart problems, she received the bad news that her soldier and last born with Diamond Platnumz, Nillan, is also in a critical condition. He is admitted.
"My soldier is down looks like more hospital days for me." Zari noted on SnapChat.
It's not yet clear what Nillan is suffering from, but it's bad enough that he is down at the time when Zari was right by Ivan's bedside after undergoing an operation. The sources add that the Rich Gang CEO is responding well.
As if that is not bad enough, the mom of five still has to keep tabs on Ivan's three soldiers who are hoping that their dad recovers pretty fast.
On the other hand, Diamond Platnumz is keeping busy by juggling with Princess Tiffah and hitting the studio in search of his next hit.

Zari puts her life on hold to take care of ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga
At this rate, Diamond Platnumz will have to wait a little longer as Zari takes good care of her ex-hubby who is battling with a heart related condition in South Africa.

Zari is seen looking on helplessly hoping her baby daddy, Ivan Semwanga, recovers pretty fast. It's said the Rich Gang president is in coma. Zari's post on IG simply confirms all is not well and more prayers needed.
Ivan was a few days back hit by a heart attack, he was rushed to Steve Biko Academic Hospital.
Zari's fans have since been praising her for the good deed of not abandoning her baby daddy at this time when he needs her most.
"Stay by his bed side and talk to him even if he is not talking back he could be still hearing and that will make a big difference. Get well soon Ivan."
"He is the father of her boys and he needs her now more than he ever did. She has to be there for the boys not to get so worried about their dad's condition. Am sure they get stronger seeing their mom by their dad's side at this moment. Am sure Diamond knows best who his woman is and he understands what Zari is doing and going through.."
Meanwhile, Zari's presence at Ivan's bedside is not going well with some family members who think she could be on standby just in case.

Ivan Semwanga hit with a coronary heart disease
Heart diseases affect people of all walks of life, the young, the old, the list is endless and looking at Ivan, it's proof that anyone can be hit with a Coronary artery disease (CAD).
We just saw him a few days back at the Blankets and Wine event with best friend, Ed Cheune, but looking at that pic closely, you can tell all was not well and for a man who drinks like fish, he was pumping his system with a fizzy drink as opposed to his expensive liquor.
His last post, a short video clip about the Blankets and Wine event was on May 11 and since then, to be exact, for the last 72 hours, Zari's ex has been battling with a heart problem at a medical facility in Pretoria, South Africa.
Fans, friends and relatives including his three sons have since been sending him get well wishes. "Last 2 days have been hard. Let’s pray for IVAN please." The mother of his three sons, Zari Hassan, revealed on Snap Chat.
The Rich Gang President is admitted at Steve Biko Academic Hospital.
Possible causes of CAD
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is the most common type of heart disease. It affects millions of people. The cause is not yet fully established, but it's linked to several factors;

Why Ivan Semwanga is selling his house
A local real estate company is advertising Ivan Semwanga's Muyenga based mansion at a whooping $1.7 Million approximately UGX6.1 Billion.
The Rich Gang president has decided to deal off his property to do other things with that money, after all, Serena Hotel is his preferred place of residence since it comes with various benefits that he would otherwise not get at his home. No doubt, he is not broke, but the money reduced after the subsidy from government to his schools was stopped.
Ivan is always in the country for just a week or slightly more, so having a house of that magnitude wasn't making much sense to him now that he spends most of his time in SA monitoring his various school projects and other businesses.
'MUNYONYO POSH MANSION ON SALE'
"House for sale in Munyonyo at $1.7M, 6 bedrooms [all self contained], living room, Gym, bar terrace 60 decimals with a Mailo land title.."
The ad goes. Ivan's house is in Muyenga and the advertised one is in Munyonyo where Ivan constructed another posh house for Zari's mom.
One asked if that was Ivan's house, ''Not really," was the response he got from the real estate agent behind the 'House for Sale' post.
Then how come all the features of the house that is being sold and Ivan's are the same? or is it "Not Really" because Ivan has already sold it!
Could it be that these two houses, one in Muyenga and the other purportedly in Munyonyo are similar in every way ranging from the positioning of the TV dish to similar color of the compound chairs and tents?
If it's true that Zari's ex is selling the house, then, UGX6 Billion is the amount to part with. Some potential buyers have raised concerns that the house is over priced.
Just a few days back, he was busy doing what he does best, chopping money and this he does with a lot of swagg..

Is Ivan converting to Islam to get Zari back!
"Any city or state I'm in, I beg the people to take me to the hood. The feeling of being around the people that have the same heart as me completes me. It can be a thousand guns in the air and I still never feel afraid coz Allah got me..."
Those were the words the Rich Gang President, Ivan Semwanga, and close friend, ED Cheune used after they travelled to Kayunga where Ivan hails from to check on their farming projects.
After checking on their farming projects, Ivan headed to M-Lisada Orphanage center in Nsambya where they donated an assortment of goodies to the less privileged kids.
Like the saying goes, 'There's no place like Home' so Ivan always comes back home to catch up on a few things like those listed above, but most importantly, screening Kampala babes for a perfect Zari replacement. The screening is done at Serena Hotel in Kampala.
Ivan Semwanga split with the mom of five in 2014 tried out Farouk for a few months, but things didn't work out ending up with the Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz with whom they have two children. Zari's previous and current lovers subscribe to the religion of Islam, could this explain why Ivan now says Allah has got him, has he converted? May be yes or not, but that is something we are following closely.

Zari's ex, Ivan Semwanga, hits back at Suzana
Socialite Suzana launched an attack on Ugandans in South Africa with posh rides saying, those are not their rides..
Suzana is determined to give the SA boys a run for their money with her Suzana Villas that she will be unveiling soon.
Ivan is around town and continues to do what he does best; sharing money shots on his timeline...
The game is now shifting from just showing rides to houses and that is the message Ivan is sending to Suzana, we do not just hang around hotels when in Uganda, we also have permanent structures like these..
As Suzana quietly steps on the SA boys, Kyeyune who normally has his rides with South African reg plates now has some of them like the red audi customized with the 20million 'CHEUNE' reg plate, again, hitting back at Suzana who thinks these are not their rides..
Let the money games continue but Suzana is surely changing the rules after taking on the socialites, she now wants the boys to feel her as well.

Suzanna launches attack on Ugandan Sangomas in South Africa
Who is Suzanna?
Suzan Namutebi aka Suzanna of Suzanna Villas along Entebbe-Kampala highway has launched an attack on South African Sangomas whom she says brag a lot with cars that are not theirs..
"Apart from offering free beers in bars, what else do they have to offer? I only trust SK Mbuga.."
It's not yet clear where this war is coming from but what is clear is that it's Dubai VS. South Africa.
SK Mbuga was initially in South Africa but has chosen to invest back home and currently constructing a hospital, may be that's what makes him a darling to Suzan.
Zari's ex-lover, Ivan Semwanga, is on record for having brought in the first beast, a Lamborghini and later followed by Katsha who shipped in a Bentley and Lambo. We only saw Katsha's Lambo at Serena hotel and Guvnor and the rest is history as he has since taken a back seat after authorities in SA burst his bubble.
Before Zari fell out with Ivan, she revealed of how most rides her baby daddy was seen with were either hired or he just loved taking selfies on posh rides, could this be the reason Suzan is now launching an attack on the SA lads..
Suzanna has a Hummer pick-up, Ford Mustang, Range Rover, Chrysler and just recently added a BMW convertible.
In March, this was her post; "There's nothing as interesting to acquire assets in your name as opposed to having everything in the name of your hubby, the day they will show you the exit is when you will know that you have nothing.."
In February, she again was on the Sangoma's case - "Yesterday night, I met some folks from South Africa and they wanted to have the night's drinks on me claiming that I'm more loaded than them...lol that's not how I do it, I only move with 300k...Please play those games with folks that inherited their wealth, I work very hard for every penny.."

Zari's ex, Ssemwanga, Just won't give up
Zari's ex, Ivan Ssemwanga just won't give up, he now claims Platnumz' second child with Zari is his going by his latest post..."Guess whose son...few of you can get it right.."
Ivan has never gotten to terms with the fact that Zari moved on and that she has two children with current lover on top of the three she had with him.
The Rich Gang President with all that 'money' that he prefers to drop in a hotel sink has not come out to let his followers know who the Zari replacement babe is, most of the babes that have tried to put on Zari's shoes have fallen short that's why we continue to register gaps in that area.
Monday, February 13 2017
With two babies already down with current lover, three with her previous one, Zari is hinting on an introduction ceremony that will be way bigger than the Mbuga's..Those on Bukedde TV yesterday must have seen a recap of SK. Mbuga and Jalia Mbuga's intro and wedding ceremonies. Zari now says her's will be five times fold.
It should be recalled that in December 2011, Zari introduced Ivan to her parents home in Munyonyo, Halima Namakula, was the Ssenga of the project but these things of love are funny, just yesterday, Halima was busy praising Ivan and Zari on how they are madly, deeply in love with each other.
As Zari and Platnumz were busy with the face unveiling of their child, her ex hubby, Ivan Semwanga, and his crew were busy popping bottles.
Friday, February 10 2017
Celebrations to mark the 40 days of Prince Nillan are in high gear. Nillan is Zari's fifth child and Diamond's second. In their religion, they do not show the baby's face until it makes at least 40 days. Zari has been issuing out invites for the event so if you do not have your's by now, chances are you are not on the guest list.
On Dec 6, Zari and Platnumz were blessed with a baby boy and since then, his face has been concealed. This was the case with Princess Latiffah [Zari's first child with Platnumz] but after 40 days, her face was unveiled to the public.
However, this has taken a little longer than 40 days as Diamond was busy with the shooting of the Marry You video that he did with American singer and song writer, Ne-Yo.
Friends and family from Uganda were seen taking lots of selfies as they embarked on a 1,680km road trip from Kampala to Magufuli land using Zari's black Chrysler which she normally uses while on vac in #UG. They took turns on the wheels and in less than 20 hours, they were there.

Businessman SK Mbuga was in the news a few days back for evading taxes on his rolls royce but now, that is a thing of the past. The young tycoon who is constructing a hospital among others had to part with over Shs 350million in taxes alone for the 2010 Ferrari model.
He then went on to clear the Rolls Royce with more or else a similar amount. One of the rides is for his beau, Vivienne Birungi. Mbuga has also gone ahead to secure customized reg plates for the two rides. 'MR MBUGA' and 'SK MBUGA' as he prepares for their wedding.
The count down for the wedding is on and Mbuga's babe, Vivienne, is over the moon. "If I could give one thing in life; I would give you the ability to see yourself through my eyes, only then would you realize how special you are to me.."
All this could be enjoyed by singer, Leila Kayondo, but from the time she was nabbed with a Congolese tycoon, things have never been the same again.
Meanwhile, it's around that time of the year when the so called Rich Gang from South Africa, otherwise, codenamed 'AbaSummer' will be in town to throw a few shillings in bars for a few days, but that will surely not steal the show as SK Mbuga has clearly taken over that space be it in rides, investments let alone, formalizing his relationship.
Ivan Semwanga tried by bringing in a Lamborghini, his then wife, Zari Hassan, introduced him to her parents but she is now expecting Diamond Platnumz' second child. Matters were made worse last year when his home was found to be defaulting on water clearly making SK Mbuga the man of the moment.

Ivan Semwanga's half brother, King Lawrence, has been off the social scene for sometime for reasons best known to him, but from the time he came back, he's been on a drinking spree, hanging out in the jacuzzi among others.
King Lawrence is on record for having taken shots with the Nkyanonya singer, Juliana Kanyomozi, Kenyan socialite Huddah Monroe and he insists, he had it with now Diamond Platnumz significant other, Zari Hassan.
The latest on his radar is a dollar stunt gone wrong. On Jun 29, he took to his wall to share a blue duffel bag with dollars captioned as ; "At least though I have been silent, I have saved this much tonight..fire boom."
This was followed by comments from mostly ladies asking for some of the bills while the guys wondered how he does it...
It was not long before the wolf that was disguising itself in a sheep's skin was busted. This was money raised for charity elsewhere and King Lawrence had saved the same amount in the same bag!!!
On realizing that he had been busted, he ran amok;
"Why do fake and broke guys always trash someone's dream, try and build yours don't mind what I post..Just mind your damn business because what I know, I got money your dad has never dreamt of having..."
Monday, June 13 2016
Ivan Ssemwanga's brother, King Lawrence, is back from wherever he was but one thing on his mind is to comb all happening places including this hot tub spot that Zari loves spending most of her valuable time.
King Lawrence and Ivan are seen hanging out in the jacuzzi as they sip on their moet champagne drink while Zari looks all relaxed as the hot bubbles massage her bod.
King Lawrence appeared on the social scene on Tuesday last week and since then, he's been having a celebration of sorts on a daily just to compensate for what he lost while he was away. The authorities had held him to help with investigations related to government tenders, but he's back to start from where he stopped..
Among the people who welcomed him back was Jose Chameleone though King Lawrence was more interested in when he can come over to South Africa, in October, Chameleone responded.
Meanwhile, the jacuzzi Zari-Ivan meet has left some circles in the Diamond Platnumz camp worried. Zari is currently in South Africa and a week back, the ex-lovers were spotted in the same hot tub...could this be the place where they meet to talk about their three children? may be not, but that leaves a lot to be desired.
Zari has three sons with her now ex-hubby Ivan Semwanga and a daughter with current lover, Diamond Platnumz who was recently on a visit in South Africa.

Ivan Semwanga has bailed out his half brother Kiyingi Lawrence aka King Lawrence who happens to be one of the Rich Gang Crew members.
King Lawrence was released on Monday morning after being under custody for three months. The other Rich Gang Crew members are now planning a mega bash to welcome him back on the social scene.
King Lawrence was arrested in January for fraud but looks like he is now back to start from where he stopped. Looking at the first shots he shared two days back, he looks a composed man. He last made posts on his social networks over 10 weeks back.
'He is back', 'we missed you' and Umekamilisha, a Swahili word meaning; Are you done? were some of the comments that followed.
Sunday, May 01 2016
As socialite Zari's ex, Ivan Ssemwanga went to bed last night, he made this 'Gudnity' post for his followers on facebook. Interestingly, he was armed with his dollar bills which were sometime back found to be fake.
However, this is coming at the time when National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) officials had just discovered illegal water connections at his Munyonyo based home. Water to his swimming pool was not billed through the meter thus not paying a penny for it.
Oh yeah once in a while, the Rich Gang president goes to bed with his money, he sleeps while feeling it. It's not clear if this year, The Rich Gang Crew will 'paralyze' Kampala like they did last year. One of the members, King Lawrence, was arrested for fraud and another member, Cheune seems to be in Kampala several months after the festive season.

Tuesday, April 26 2016
Officials from the National Water and Sewerage Corporation (NWSC) were on Monday afternoon carrying out an operation in Munyonyo and Ivan Semwanga's residence was among the homes that were found to have illegal water connections.
The officials had long suspected there was a problem with this particular home but were always denied entry. On the fateful day, they managed to make their way in. Minutes later, it was revealed that the water to the pool and jacuzzi had bypassed the metre leading to millions of losses in the process.
"Our team is unearthing an illegal water connection at this posh house," One of the officials who was busy taking shots of Ivan's rides that include a Hummer pick-up, BMW and a Jaguar among others tweeted.
He went on to write; "Customers who steal water deny many deserving customers a right to safe clean water." The officials who confiscated the pipes, taps and metres that will later be provided in court as evidence said it's not yet clear at this time how much the Rich Gang member will pay in damages.
Meanwhile, Zari's ex-hubby does not seem bothered by what the NWSC officials found at his home, he just went on to share his pics while resting besides dollars in a manner that seemed to suggest; "Let me know when you're done with the costing."
"Good evening my people," Ivan wrote.
The not bothered Ivan is seen striking a pose during the festive season at the residence found to have illegal water connections and below, an officer from NWSC is seen busy disconnecting the water.

Socialite Zari real name Zarinah Hassan has revealed where she gets her lovely ears and skin complexion from.
"And that's where I get my ears and skin colour from. My Indian grandpa, Mzee Sultan." May God rest your soul in peace," she concluded. This was followed by several RIP messages, mostly from her new TZ in-laws.
Zari has so many breeds as her family tree reveals. On the maternal side, her granny was Indian and when it comes to the paternal side, her grandfather is Somalian and grand ma Burundian and out of all that the now East Africa's socialite is born.
In 2008, Zari won the Channel O award for Best East African Artiste. She is a mom of four, Pinto, Didy, Quincy and her very last born, Tiffah Dangote, she fathered with Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz after dumping her hubby, Ivan Semwanga.
Sunday, March 27 2016
Zari's lover boy, Diamond Platnumz is on a European Tour where they've been for close to a week now. Yesterday, the Tanzanian singer was performing in Oslo, Norway and tonight, he will be doing his thing in Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
Meanwhile, in South Africa, Zari's ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga, is taking very good care of their three sons. The boys are all on social networks and so they follow their mom on a minute to minute basis, so to divert their attention, their dad decided to give them a treat by flying them to Capetown where they will spend the Easter eve. Ivan also hired a Rolls Royce, the car he was prepared to buy for Zari had she returned to his life four years back.
In the ride, the boys and Ivan are seen singing to Drake's Hotline Bling doing this particular line; "You used to call me on my cell phone late night when you need my love..."
However, their mom replied promptly. "I see Capetown is favoring you, we should do Dubai soon."

This is coming days after Katsha had just secured his freedom, though sources privy to the matter say it's far from over, otherwise, he could be here to at least check on his one-week-old baby having spent the festive season under police custody.
King Lawrence had long left Uganda at the time when Ivan was battling with a case of theft for an iPhone6 to go and sort himself out with the authorities down in South and on the advise of his lawyer, King Lawrence turned himself in at a Sandton based police station only to find that he had more cases filed for him.
Sources add that it's a long list though most of them are not as popular as the Rich Gang Crew. Among those arrested, it's said that a relative of ex-beauty queen, Barbara Kimbugwe is one of them, does this explain why she was in South Africa early in the week, may be not.
King Lawrence now has a new Instagram account after the old one was 'hacked', it's that account that had posts of King Lawrence claiming he had slept with socialites Huddah Monroe and Zari, not forgetting the Tiffah-paternity DNA test drama, they were all on that account.
The crime intelligence unit has been tracking the activities of the suspects for months after they discovered that these guys had access to a government-registered supplier database.
"It is alleged that they created a false government agency with fraudulent documents and posed as suppliers. They would then send victims quotes and request they pay upfront but the goods were never delivered," a source that first arrested the first syndicate last September noted.
King Lawrence's last posts on Instagram were made four days back, sadly, they were about Zari and Platnumz baby.

MC Kats has been the talk of the town for the last 72 hours following his rant on social media. In his post, MC Kats was complaining about the Rich Gang members who made him sit at Serena hotel for several hours as he waited for their wedding contribution but the pledge was not fulfilled.
His wedding with the Double Trouble singer, Fille Muthoni CLEAR, is around the corner and he had hoped to knock down quite a number of items off the wedding budget but with the Rich Gang crew letting him down, he was left with no choice but to let it out on social media.
He was so p!ssed off to the point that even the simplest of words like 'met' as he tried to communicate that he met them four years back ended up as "ment" clearly distorting the message, but it got to where it was being sent anyway.
Zari's ex-hubby is equally not a happy man after losing over Shs30 million for just pouring a drink on a one Sadat Serusiba, may be this is the very reason Kats is so disturbed, probably, this could have been the money Ivan was to pay to fulfill his pledge.
The NTV Expozed presenter is so much under pressure, he wants to throw the best wedding ever and this contribution from the Rich Gang crew could have just made him realize part of that dream but for now, it seems unlikely as he states in his post;
"They are not famous for money, we made you believe they have money and if they do, please show me one investment in Uganda...During the Ripped Jeans Party, they said they were to give me 20million, if at all they do, I promise I will give 10m to charity."
Ivan had always been the laid back type of person always supporting the Uganda Cranes and promising them hefty sums for every goal scored but when basketball star, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4 started moving out with the mother of his children, Ivan came out of his shell.
Matters became worse, LK4 was dumped and straight on Farouk Sempala got into the 'riders' seat it was also not so long before he was sent to where he belonged. Currently, Diamond Platnumz is the one dating Zari though not so sure of his future thus his latest song, Utanipenda.

Updated: Shs 20m was contribution for Kats and Fille wedding which is about to take place.
Celebrated city MC Edwin Katamba who recently changed his name to Doro Kats is not a happy man after the Rich Gang Crew promised him Shs 20 million as a contribution for his wedding party, but it appears to be an empty promise. Fille's baby daddy has singled out Zari's ex, Ivan Semwanga, saying that he's not rich and had it not been for his "efforts", he would not be known.
It should be recalled that Ivan was forced to pay $10,000 in the theft and assault case from a car dealer who had vowed to take him down, their troubles stem from a woman. That has left a huge dent on him bearing in mind that he was not prepared to dish it out that way, he prefers to throw it around as revellers fight to pick it.
MC Kats is now a bitter man and regretting why he did not pick some of that money Ivan was throwing on the dance floors and yet he was very close to him being the MC.
The MC who has also tried his luck at singing was told to go to Serena Hotel for his payment but while there, he sat for several hours and after the long wait, he was told to come back the next day.
Meanwhile, as the dad of over ten waited at Serena Hotel, the Sangoma's were constantly drinking or having a steam bath, sauna not forgetting a 'Do Not Disturb' tag on their hotel doors. Matters were made worse when his right hand man, Katsha failed to make it to Kampala due to the fraud case.
"4 years back I met this hungry man for fame called Ivan S aka Rich Gang mbu...through my old time friend, Zari. They promised me too much, I could be driving a Lamborghini by now..." Below is his full post

The much awaited court battle between Rich Gang CEO Ivan Ssemwanga and car dealer Gadafi Sadat Serusiba, who claimed that he lost property worth Shs46M won't proceed.
More of this story
This follows an out-of-court settlement between the two parties at a mediation meeting held in Munyonyo. Ivan has agreed to pay $10,000 to compensate Serusiba for the items he lost that include an iPhone6, a gold chain and money.
Gadafi Sadat was satisfied with the outcome and agreed to withdraw the case, the two even hugged to confirm that all was well. Sadat went on to say that it's not Ivan who stole his phone but it got lost as he was being dragged out of the club by the bouncers.
Ivan apologized for his actions which he said were under the influence of alcohol. Ivan also explained why he opted for an out fo court settlement, he is a CEO of Brooklyn Colleges with over six branches in South Africa and it's about that time when schools resume, this case would be eating into his time.
The investigating officer behind the case was able to release Ivan's passport after being convinced by the complainant that all was well.
It's not been an easy period for these Sangoma's. Katsha is in for fraud, he missed the TMT party and his girlfriend, Shakira, was forced back to Uganda as her lover's arrest was looming. SK Mbuga was today behind the dock for assaulting his girlfriend Leila Kayondo, she ended up being his surety and now Ivan Semwanga.
During the Ripped Jeans Party, Ivan and his 'partner' King Lawrence told revellers that they love being poor, this must have prompted the likes of Serusiba to think fast.

After bursting them for displaying fake dollars, the Rich Gang crew have changed tactics, they now sleep with dirty shillings to prove a point that the money is real and not fake as it was widely believed.
"Just woke up wondering where the party is..." Rich Gang president captioned the pic of about shillings 50 million. Zari's ex hubby has literally attended all parties in Kampala doing what he does best, chopping money.
However, on December 30, Semwanga ws arrested for assault and theft after a Kampala businessman lost items worth shs40m. He also sustained injuries as Guvnor bouncers threw him out of the night spot.
Ivan was released on police bond after depositing his passport with the Jinja road police station. We are all aware of what singer Leila Kayondo did, she sought the intervention of the Inspector General of Police in the arrest of her lover, SK Mbuga, and within a matter of hours, this was done.
Ivan's accuser, Sadat Gafafi Serusiba (pink shirt) has now also asked the IGP to intervene in this case after learning of plans to obstruct the case from the DPP's office. Ivan is supposed to report this Wednesday at Jinja road and looking at how the police was swift to handle Mbuga, Ivan Semwanga's file could also be ready for court.
Thursday, December 31 2015
Zari's ex who was today released on police bond will report to Jinja road police station on January 6, 2016. If Ivan had plans of leaving earlier than that, he could probably end up going by road as his passport has been retained by police authorities as part of the police bond conditions.
Businessman and car dealer, Gadafi Sadat Serusiba, who happens to be a very close friend of Diamond Platnumz is the complainant in this case. Efforts of trying to solve the case out-of-court failed between these two as both sides tried to outdo each other, it will be court to sort them out.
Sadat who came cruising his black Hummer to Jinja road police station noted in a statement that Ivan along with his bouncers at Guvnor beat him up and also stole his money. Their scuffle dates way back in 2014 when Ivan held babes that Sadat was hanging out with in the waists telling them that why hang out with broke dudes when he was around!
On asking Ivan to back off, his bouncers swung into action, beat him up and in the process, he lost his Iphone6, dollars 6,000 and shs 3million. He also lost his wrist watch valued at USD 10,000. They also squeezed his b.alls. The case is filed under number: GEF/110/2015.
On being released, Ivan was driven off in a black Land Cruiser Cygnus UAX series..

The Tompona singer was having a photo moment with the TMT member but the look on her face suggested that she was more than ready to tap into the TMT dollars.
In one of the shots, Gitawo could not miss the come to bed eyes and in another, he was forced to make his intentions known but the Kuzina Nawe singer was like ...Let me think about it..
Sheebah Karungi and Irene Ntale got the biggest chunk of money that was thrown away at the Rich Gang Party before the Liquid Silk management announced that for security reasons, the practice had to be put on hold. This did not go down well with some revelers who had come with the hope of picking some of the bills that were to be thrown on the dance floor.
Tomorrow is the TMT's Money and Gold party and Cameroon Gitawo together with Meddie Ssentongo say that they will not throw money but will instead give it out.
In fact, they add that no money was given out at the Rich Gang Party but revelers should just come and see for themselves. The Rich Gang Party have been dishing out some bits of monies anyway but we are yet to see the TMT crew do that...
One Bukedde presenter who was interviewing Ivan Ssemwanga at the Zari White Party tasked him to chop some money, the Kulya Kaasi presenter just abandoned his duties for a moment and resorted to picking cash in the 'Yoola Omudidi' style.
At the party, TMT will also launch their music label aimed at promoting new talent in and around East Africa.

Rich Gang president, Ivan Semwanga who happens to be Zari's ex-hubby is one of the guests at this year's Zari All White Party. Ivan was joined by other crew members who include ED Cheune and King Lawrence.
It should be recalled that King Lawrence is on record for having quite a number of fights with Zari, the most recent being the DNA test in which he claimed he was the father of Zari's baby. More of that here: King Lawrence wants DNA testing for paternity.
It was against this background that TZ fans warned Diamond Platnumz who jetted into the country a few hours back to be extra careful while at the party.
However, on Thursday while appearing on NTV the Beat, Zari told whoever cared to know that Ivan Semwanga is the father of her children and having been together for 10 years, he will always have a spot in her heart, "I'm sure that I also have a spot in his," She noted.
"However, he is free to do whatever he wants with his life but for a fact, we broke up and I don't want to interfere with his life," she added.
These words must have touched Ivan leaving him with no choice but to grace the mother of all parties, though, this year's All White party has been a low key party compared to last year, or better still, the Tanzanian version.
Revellers should expect a lot of money being thrown to the crowd as various camps try to out do each other on who is who. Meanwhile, police is investigating the Rich Gang Crew on suspicion of displaying fake dollars, they are not taking the matter lightly much as there is no law that stops one from having money.
The move by Ivan attending Zari's party has seen Diamond Platnumz' fans in Tanzania urging him to do the same with Wema Sepetu. "Separating does not mean you can't get along with your ex borrow a leaf from Ivan" they added.
Platnumz has his latest Zari love song dubbed Utanipenda, but he includes a scene of 'Wema Sepetu' spraying dirty water on him as he walked on Tanzanian streets.

The Rich Gang crew are in town combing all happening places dishing out cash and in some places, offering an open bar.
The RG president, Ivan Semwanga and King Lawrence were on Friday night welcomed by a bevy of young ladies at the airport, moments later, they were whisked to their suites at Serena Hotel in a limousine. The girls were giving them very good company as they sipped on champagne.
At the hotel, they did not stay for long, they just dropped their luggage and out they went to Silk Lounge for the Ripped Jeans Party. Hell broke loose the moment Ivan and King walked in, attention shifted to them and like he normally does, Ivan chopped some money as revellers fought to have every bill that was being dropped.
"The owner of the bar, come for your money," Zari's ex-husband, Ivan roared.
If you can't beat them, join them - Meddie Ssentongo who has since teamed up with Cameroon Gitawo, apparently, their rival was spotted at Serena hanging out with the Rich Gang crew alongside Jose Chameleone.
On Saturday night, Ivan was out to have some fun and Liquid Silk was his destination and while there, he met the First Son, Brigadier Muhoozi Kainerugaba who happens to be his very good friend.
On Sunday, King and Ivan were out again and this time hanging out with Chameleone and his brother Weasel at the Uganda Museum which was the venue for the Blankets and Wine.
After the heavy activity, it was time for the Rich Gang to rest...On Monday, they spent a greater part of their time at the hotel where they held a few meetings in line with the Rich Gang party that will be held on the December 23 at Liquid Silk where he was hanging out with the first son.
Trust Ivan, he will do anything to silence every move that Diamond Platnumz does. For the record, Ivan is the father of Zari's three children but the two fell out after 10 years, she is now seeing the Tanzanian singer, she recently gave birth to her fourth child and Diamond Platnumz first.
Last week, Diamond Platnumz released his latest song, Utanipenda, in which he pours out his heart to, Zari, in fact she features in the video. Ivan will do anything and everything to try and keep his followers busy other than concentrating on the mother of his children who decided to call it quits.
Meanwhile, they always seem to have drama every festival season. In 2013, King Lawrence continuously bumped into Juliana at Serena Hotel but this year, he seems to be alone.
Friday, December 11 2015
King Lawrence and Zari's ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga jet in tonight for the Rich Gang Party that will be held on December 23. Last year, the Rich Gang crew comprised of Ivan, King, Meddie Ssentongo and Ed Cheune who is already in the country, but this year, Meddie Ssentongo teamed up with Katsha and Cameroon Gitawo to form the TMT Africa group. The two camps are already out doing each other.
Katsha had hoped to leave a mark with his TMT party after pumping in so much and shipping in expensive gold-plated rides but unfortunately for him, he was arrested in South Africa on fraud charges and therefore, won't be able to make it to Uganda this festive season.
It's also said that the rides that include a Bentley and Lamborghini were used as collateral to get him money to pay off his legal team after his accounts were frozen following the arrest, he had also hoped to secure his bail today but we are yet to confirm that.
Meddie Ssentongo and Cameroon Gitawo are now running the show. Katsha's pregnant babe, Shakira, might not even attend that party now that she is about to give birth, but that aside, Cameroon and Katsha are locked up in a bitter exchange after the former left South Africa before securing Katsha's bail.
Katsha now says Gitawo is a wanted man in South Africa for having stolen a Lexus car something that Gitawo rubbishes saying those are effects of being in jail, he is not thinking straight. On arrival in Uganda, Gitawo said that 600million was the budgeted amount for the party but the Rich Gang Crew say that he has never held that money in his life.
Meanwhile, as the Rich Gang Crew continue with their bickering Zari and her lover Diamond Platnumz are smoothly sailing through.
Last year, Diamond Platnumz was the guest artist for Zari's All White Party but this year, Diamond Platnumz has teamed up with Pato Ranking and will be having a show at Lugogo Cricket Oval on December 18 a day after the Zari All White Party.
Monday, November 30 2015
The source that first leaked the arrest of Katsha added that two more Sangomas were on that wanted list, King Lawrence and Eddy Kyeyune. It's alleged that King Lawrence is in Uganda but that is yet to be confirmed. His better half, Miss Rose is already missing him.
His last post was a week back when he shared a receipt of close to USD4,000 which was spent at Moloko Hotel in Sandton in just one night. King and ED Cheune as he is referred to by close pals have both not made any post in the last one week.
Just like Katsha who has the Money Gold Party, King Lawrence too has a party on December 23 dubbed the ''Rich Gang Spenders party" that will be held at Liquid Silk. King Lawrence teams up with Zari's X, Ivan Semwanga and ED Cheune to bring you the party which will have an open bar and free food for the guests at the cost of 50k.
King Lawrence could attend the Rich Gang's Party but it's still not clear if Katsha will be able to attend considering that the case could still be ongoing by the end of this month. Katsha will appear in court again on December 4, 2015.
Meanwhile, Ivan Semwanga and TMT's Cameroon Gitawo have vowed to do what it takes to ensure that their man, Katsha De Bank is out. Gitawo, Katsha and Meddie Ssentongo are the one's behind the Money Gold Party.
Sunday, November 22 2015
The dad of three was spotted in the company of Katsha De Bank and Gagamel CEO Bebe Cool who had travelled down South for the shooting of his Killin It video.
Ivan has for some reason failed to replace Zari, Katsha's pregnant babe is currently in Uganda while Bebe Cool's wife, Zuena Kirema is still in the US receiving postpartum care, the boys were all by themselves.
Back to the subject matter, Ivan looked a lot darker than he looks now, we hope he is not taking the avenue of "If it ain't white, it ain't right"
We've compared an earlier pic of Ivan and Katsha a few months back, there was not much difference in their skin complexion than there is now!!!

Haruna Mubiru tried to join the hoverboard family by cruising on two wheels but he left everyone laughing as it sent him flying all the way down. We all remember the journalist who was covering Usain Bolt before running into him, Haruna's fall was worse. He is currently nursing minor injuries he sustained from the fall.
Haruna did not have the coordination it took to ride what is also termed as a segway board. Between 100 and 300 dollars, you can get yourself one.
Here is the list of other local stars making use of the latest trend:
Bobi Wine's son, Solomon Kyagulanyi, was appealing to Bobi Wine fans to come in large numbers for the Busabala fest this Saturday, he did that while on a hoverboard.
In some cities elsewhere, hoverboard scooters have been banned in public places, so looking at what happened to Haruna Mubiru, it could have been worse had he been on the streets.

Rich Gang crew celebrate arrest of blackmailer
Followers of Bugembe Esmile aka the "International Analyst" will have to wait a little longer before they can get updates from him following his arrest on Thursday. The facebook blackmailer tried to extort millions of shillings from businessman SK Mbuga, but luck was not on his side. SK Mbuga is singer Leila Kayondo's current lover.
Apparently, Bugembe had just shared highlights of the (Leila-Mbuga-Vivienne) love triangle on his timeline with a promise to return with more details but now, that might not be possible after his arrest.
As his followers patiently waited, he was busy negotiating with SK Mbuga to pay a hefty sum so that he could not delve into the details, so Mbuga gave him directions to his home where detectives were waiting to have him arrested. On getting to SK Mbuga's home, clad in jeans and a hood, the analyst came for his payment only to be arrested.
Rich Gang crew celebrate his arrest
The Rich Gang crew members like Ivan Semwanga, King Lawrence and Cheune among others are celebrating what they are terming as a 'harvest'.
E-smile is the guy that busted Katsha on the Munyonyo house project, he also brought out info on Cheune's business dealings, King Lawrence was forced to pay shs6m to Bugembe not to publish some info as revealed by Ivan Semwanga who was so excited that the ''Analyst" had been arrested.

In the pic above, apart from Prince Jjunju, the rest of the men have been associated with socialite Zari who is currently dating Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz.
"When all your exes decide to come together," King Lawrence wrote as he shared the pic. Ivan is the father of Zari's three boys while LK4 was the very first dude Zari dated when her affair with Ivan became rocky and before dating Diamond Platnumz, Zari was moving out with Farouk Ssempala.
Read Also: I'm not bothered by Zari's past-Platnumz
King Lawrence has always told Diamond Platnumz that he hit it first and just recently, Ivan's half brother shocked everyone when he instructed his Kampala lawyers to serve Zari with a notice that required her to carry out a DNA test to ascertain who the biological father of baby Tiffah was, this must have been some of those stunts he pulls on behalf of Ivan Ssemwanga.
But regarding the allegations that King had it with her, this was her response;
"Ma dude (Platnumz) needs a b***h too, that gay-eish thing of yours is not on point. Baby daddy (Ivan) failed to "wife" you all this time you've been fighting his battles, you think Diamond Platnumz will? So it's true, when they see you happy, they start hating more huh?"
Ivan Semwanga was a few days contributing Etoffali to Buganda Kingdom and it's no wonder that Kabaka's son Prince Jjunju has paid him a courtesy call while on his visit to South Africa.
In December, they will be holding their Rich Gang Party at Liquid Silk in Bugolobi whose theme is; Money, Power and Fame

When other mothers post pics breastfeeding their babies, what you see is what you get, but when Zari does that, it's a political statement.
Zari has shared her first breastfeeding pic to dispel rumors that were widely circulating, that, she wasn't breastfeeding baby Latiffah all in the name of keeping her center folds firm. Other sources were citing breast implants as the reason behind Zari's actions, but depending on where the surgery was done, it does not stop new mothers from breastfeeding.
In the pic, Zari is seen feeding her little princess but some mothers have come out to say that the posture is not that of a breastfeeding mom, she is doing that for the camera.
Well, in another pic, which appears more or less at the same time when Zari was breastfeeding, her mom, Latiffah's grand mother is seen feeding the little princess on a bottle. Again, in another pic, Zari is feeding the baby in what looks like a bottle setting tongues wagging.
Three weeks back, socialite Zari gave birth to her fourth child and Diamond Platnumz' first child in Tanzania, but for reasons best known to her, she had declined to show the baby's face and won't do so unless after forty days.
"We now want to see the DNA results since you are going to show us everything," One wrote.
Meanwhile, down in South Africa, Zari's ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga is busy taking good care of their three soldiers as they prefer to call them. Three days back he was letting whoever cared to know that he sleeps alone in his versace bed.
Monday, August 17 2015
Hours after it turned out that Ivan's half brother, King Lawrence, wants a DNA test done on Zari's baby, the socialite has simply branded him a mad man. Zari shared a pic of Latiffah's baby showing a bit of her hair with this caption;
"Somebody won't sleep at this time, so let's pray. God help us to draw comfort from our faith in you.." the fans joined her in prayer.
"Don't you think it's time to show your followers baby Tiffah's face?" one asked. The mom of three boys and one girl wrote that after 40 days. The fans went on to ask about King Lawrence's move that requires her to subject the baby to a DNA test, Zari responded with this line; "Oyo Mulalu" meaning; He is mad.
Zari's ex hubby, Ivan Ssemwanga has tried to move on after Zari but it's not been easy..He tried a go at a TV personality but as you can see in the pic below, he was forced to make that clarification when it turned out that she was preggie.

Katumba Shaffic aka Katsha is slowly but surely taking over the social scene at least from the Ugandans living in South Africa. The latest info before us is that the 'Harvard graduate' has completed what he is terming as his eighth project and in his words
Thanks to Facebook critics, as he was flaunting different rides ranging from a Hummer to a Bentley and now, a Lamborghini his followers were like; Why don't you donate to charity or better still construct a posh house!
Katsha has all along been posting pics from his hotel rooms in Serena and Kololo rented apartments, but now that is changing.
Recently, he shared an old house in a Kampala suburb but his fans did not spare him wondering how someone who could afford to buy top range rides was doing little to change Kampala's skyline, but as they say, tastes and preferences.
His business rival, Ivan Ssemwanga code named as Chairman from his circles has been running this game for quite a while but at this rate, Katsha won't rest unless he is sure Ivan is off the radar.
Katsha's better half, Shakira has a complexion like that of Ivan's ex, Zari, Just like Ivan, Katsha also has a Lamborghini, they both have Hummers, though Ivan has invested massively in the education sector with his Brooklyn Colleges, six in total all located in South Africa, Katsha claims to be having a college too but that is subject to verification. Ivan constructed a house for his in-laws in Munyonyo and that is the same area Katsha has constructed his six-bedroom house.
Meanwhile, Katsha is now planning to cause a storm in Kampala by shipping his Lamborghini to Uganda just like Ivan did, so when you see the a gold Lambo on the streets of Kampala, then you will know. Whie Ivan's ex is pregnant for Tanzania's finest Diamond Platnumz, Katsha's Shakira is busy assuring him of how he will love him forever.

"I'm not dating Doreen Kyomuhangi and not responsible for the child she is carrying," Zari's ex, Ivan Semwanga noted this morning.
Doreen is a news anchor at NBS TV and given her skin complexion which is not very different from Zari's, many had hoped that she was replacing the mother of Ivan's three soldiers. Doreen is pregnant and Ivan is quick to distance himself from the pregnancy.
In May, similar claims had come up that Doreen and Ivan were dating, she did not waste any minute in clearing the space by letting whoever cared to know that she was not about to replace Zari, and in her message, she seemed not to even know who Zari was.
"I'm not engaged to anyone and white has never been my colour,"
Tuesday, July 14 2015
The battle for supremacy between South Africa based Ugandans, Ivan Semwanga and Katsha continues, Katsha has now pimped his silver Lambo to a gold-plated colour, the job was done from Dubai.
"Believe me or not we are winning big time.." In case you are wondering what celebration is going on in Shakira's world, then wonder no more. Katsha's goal is to bring down Zari's ex, Ivan Ssemwanga and by adding a Lambo to his fleet, that was a step closer.
Ivan's first Lambo is orange and the second one is yellow, so Katsha had to have a gold-plate job done to his, that is exactly what pregnant Shakira is talking about.
Ivan was in Kampala recently, looks like he is still failing to get a perfect Zari replacement but the search continues.
Wednesday, June 17 2015
This game is becoming very interesting..It started off with Katsha buying a Lambo but being the second after Ivan's, it has not generated much excitement the way Ivan Semwanga's did.
On Tuesday, Diamond Platnumz who is in South Africa to check on his boo, Zari, was shooting a video for his latest song and one of his ideas was to have a Lambo feature as a hot scene in the video, it took a phone call for Zari to convince Katsha to hand over the ride but before doing so, Katsha used that time as a photo moment with the Bongo flavour star which wasn't bad for his 'CV'.
"Thanks a lot baby, It's finally here.." Platnumz wrote on his instagram profile. Now this is the message that sent mixed signals to the extent that Zari was forced out of her her bed to come and rescue the situation.
In the above message, Platnumz made it look like Zari had bought the ride for him as a Thank You for the job well done, but Zari very quickly came to his rescue in this post:
"Many thanks to my brother Katsha the King of rides, for making it happen, Ma boo couldn't stop thanking me I guess it's always good to have a gal who's got your back, thanks once again. Watch the space # NewVideoTingz!!!!," Zari noted on her wall.
She then went on to attack the women who were on her case that these days she only strikes a pose in the kitchen and bedroom but not with the posh rides when she was still with Ssemwanga, the father of her three sons. She did not have kind words for these ones;
"Ebikazi bizungila ku Facebook oti mbwa dakukyalo mbu bili nonya lugambo," loosely translated as; "These women just hang around Facebook like village dogs in search for gossip..."

We recently told of how Katsha was determined to run over Ivan Ssemwanga in their circles of Ugandans living n South Africa.
After 'adding' a lambo similar to one Ivan was spotted with a few days back, his girlfriend with a complexion similar to that of Zari not forgetting that she is also expecting though the man responsible is the Bongo flavour star, Platnumz.

Battle for Supremacy - Ivan Ssemwanga Vs. Katsha
Zari's ex-hubby, Ivan Semwanga and Katsha are locked up in a war of their own. The two Sangomas are trying to outshine each other as far as their showy lifestyles are concerned.
Not long back, Katsha acquired a black Bentley at least to make his presence felt in the world of rides but Ivan won't let him take over his space easily, he has also added a Bentley to his fleet. The question of whether it's hired or bought can be a topic for another day, but for now, Ivan equally belongs to the Bentley class if the above pic is anything to go by.
Well knowing that Ivan has a lambo parked at home, Katsha very quickly dashed to a Lamborghini shop for a test ride, he even shared a google pic of a small aircraft on his wall as his latest addition but was instead busted, it was only a picture.
it's no wonder, Katsha's latest catch, Shakira is as light as Ssemwanga's ex, Zari could this still be coincidental?, may be not, but one thing is for sure, he still got a lot to do to outshine his mentor.

As Zari is busy enjoying her honeymoon, her ex-hubby, Ivan Ssemwanga is in Kampala busy dishing out cash to whoever wants it. He was at Guvnor for the Night in Vegas theme party where he dished out lots of cash to all the curvy and bummy babes.

The catfight between Zari and Ivan Semwanga's latest babe, Malkia Wakichaga, continues. She now says, Zari's pregnancy is for a one Katunzi and not for Tanzanian singer, Diamond Platnumz.

The cold nights for Ivan Ssemwanga will soon be over when Malkia joins him but that might not be anytime soon if Zari's words are anything to go by. Zari says, Malkia is stuck in the US and can't travel to Africa for lack of papers.
This 45-year-old with no career but only good at hitting on men is no wife material, Zari noted a few days back.
And now, Malkia has retaliated with a salvo that has made Zari take a break from social media for a few hours.
In her message, Malkia says she won't put much of her attention on a p.o.r.nstar which is an absolute waste of time. All that Zari does is to search for sp.erm donors from different men, something she does for survival. In her salvo, Malkia reveals who the owner of the pregnancy is, it's for a one Katunzi.
Malkia concludes by warning Zari that if she continues with her nonsense, she will go ahead and unleash more of the sagging b.oobs surgery pics, s_e-x tape of when Ivan found her in prostitution plus the injection that makes Zari that light among others. More of that up there!!!
These two were once very close and used to complement each other, but for now, it's a tug-of-war. As the catfight progresses to n.asty scenes, Ivan is busy taking pics in his giant bed or next to a car of his choice...

Zari's on and off hubby, Ivan Semwanga has once again undergone a plastic surgery operation. It looks like the operation he did 14 months back did not offer the desired results forcing him to do it again. It has cost him approximately shs 100m.
The last time he did it, his wife Zari was dating ex-big brother and basket ball star, Isaac Lugudde aka LK4, Zari was deeply, madly in love with his albs. Like any other couple, things did not work out, but LK4 had quenched his thirst anyway.
Ivan has again gone for the surgery to try and work on his fat belly and also reduce on the breasts. This is coming at the time after Zari has just dumped her latest lover, Farouk Sempala, better known as the muscle man. Farouk dated Zari longer than LK4.
Given that background, it's not surprising to see how hard Ivan is trying to achieve a body closer to LK4 or Farouk. However, it's not clear if his efforts will pay off because as he is recuperating from the operation, nutritional drinks are right by his bedside.
We only hope this time around, the efforts pay off, otherwise sooner rather than later, we could see him doing another operation.
