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.
