Zari Hassan's eldest son Pinto Ntale has been named as the official heir of Ivan Ssemwanga’s properties following a family meeting that was held in Kayunga District Nakaliro village, the ancestral home of the late Ivan Don.

This comes after a long bloody standoff between socialite Zari Hassan and her late hubby Ivan Semwanga’s family on who exactly shall become the true heir to the fallen money bags.

The clan settled on Pinto as the true heir during the clans meeting. Although Pinto wasn’t able to attend the important cultural ceremony due to immigration challenges down in South Africa, he was represented by his mum and his two younger brothers Raphael Junior and Dido Seemwanga aka LilQ Quincy.

“I wasn’t fighting; I heard the stories from the other family. Yaani it wasn’t a priority to me because I know what belongs to the kids or me or whatever, everyone shall get what belongs to them” she said.

She added that she wouldn’t fight Ivan’s relatives and has no beef with them because they are family, whether she likes it or not.
