My ex-husband used to beat me before my kids – Zari Hassan


Wealthy Ugandan socialite Zari Hassan has disclosed that she was in an abusive marriage with ex-husband, Ivan Ssemwanga.

Speaking to NTV Uganda’s Mwasuze Mutya show with presenter Faridah Nakazibwe on Thursday morning, Zari says she put a lot of effort in salvaging her union which was headed for the rocks.

“I tried so much to mend the relationship so as it works but it failed. I was abused by Ssemwanga even in front of my kids, sometimes it happened in public. I think everyone knows that now. It’s a common thing in relationships so it shouldn’t be a secret,” said the mother of four.

Her revelation came few hours after she confessed she still feels something for Ivan Ssemwanga despite currently dating Diamond Platnumz.

“Having been my husband for 10 years and the father of my children, he (Ivan) will always have a spot in my heart and I am sure that I also have a spot in his,” stated the wealthy businesswoman.

Zari says despite the ‘mutual’ feeling, there’s nothing that can spark the relationship which had conked out. The new mother added that she has completely moved on.

“I always let him do whatever he wants with his life because for a fact, we broke up and I do not need to be interfering with his life,” she said.

Zari’s response came after Douglas asked her what she felt about the speculations that Ssemwanga had reportedly bleached his skin.

Ivan and Zari broke up in 2014. They have three sons together.

Zari was appearing on the show ahead of her “Zari All White Party” that will take place on Thursday, December 17 at Club Guvnor in Uganda.
