The Uganda Police has dismissed reports about a request to exhume the body of the fallen city socialist Zari Hassan’s husband and businessman Ivan Semwanga.
According to the police spokesperson, Mr Asan Kasingye, said they have neither resolved nor received a request by South African police to have Semwanga’s body exhumed for examination as reported earlier by sections of local media.
Police statement comes amidst audios going viral on social media disputing the death of Semwanga who was buried at his ancestral home in Kayunga District last Tuesday.
However In the same fate, city lawyer Abey Mgugu and Robert Ssenfuka filed a petition before the High Court in Kampala, A Plus Funeral Management and the Bank of Uganda were named as respondents where they requested for the removal of the cash that was buried with Ivan Ssemwanga.
Both applicants contend that the bank acted in negligence by failing to ensure the respect of monetary currency of Uganda and other countries.
During Semwanga’s burial, members of his Rich Gang crew decanted luxurious champagne and splashed money in his grave as the casket was being lowered for burial.
