Zari Hassan’s ex-husband Ivan Ssemwanga early this week fell unconscious at his Uganda home and was rushed to hospital in critical condition. Zari on Monday posted a photo of candles on her Instagram page and requested her followers to pray for Ivan.
She wrote on Snapchat Monday: “These two days have been difficult for me. Let us pray for Ivan.”
Ugandan media report that Ivan Ssemwanga suffers from heart-related complications.
Zari Hassan is the current girlfriend of Tanzanian top artiste Diamond Platnumz, with whom they have two children together. The two started dating in November, 2014 after Diamond Platnumz parted ways with his ex-lover, actress Wema Sepetu.
Zari Hassan and her ex-husband, Ivan Ssemwanga, have three sons together.
Netizens were divided over Zari Hassan’s gesture toward Ivan, with some quotas claiming that she was being disrespectful to her current partner, Diamond Platnumz.
One user said Zari Hassan sending Ivan Ssemwanga a get-well soon message would have been appropriate, but a visit in hospital and even declaring “she was hurting” was in the extreme.
Other users, however, said Zari Hassan’s gesture was humane, and it showed how mature she is when it comes to handling issues relating to her ex.
