Zari Hassan pens emotional message to eldest son Pinto Ntale



Zari Hassan has shared her trust in her eldest son, Pinto Ntale, to steady his younger sibling’s futures in an emotional letter – should anything happen to her.

Planning for life after death, the mother of five, 40, admitted that she does not worry, neither is she helpless, nor does she feel afraid as she is confident in her son’s preparedness for the eventuality of death. In the letter, which she penned on her Instagram page, Zari encouraged her son to be as great as he can be – as he is capable to “take care of the situation” – since he is ‘different, chosen, God’s angel and God’s greatest’. 

“I’d seen love and but when I had you I felt and experienced something different; real love. Today if something happened to me, I know with all my heart you’d take care of the situation. Today I celebrate you; you’re different, your chosen, you’re God’s angel/God’s greatest. I love you to the moon, Mars to the moon to mention a few. Gona leave this here incase make mummy is no more just know mummy knew from day 1, you will be MVP, world’s greatest. I love you, and no, mummy ain’t going soon but sometime later. I love you,” she posted.

Celebrating the 18-year-old in July, the Ugandan businesswoman, who had Pinto with the late Ivan Ssemwanga, opened up about their relationship and described their life journey as beautiful. “He will kill me for this, he hates being posted and photos all in all but it’s fine, even in the next life am still going to choose to be your mom. Our journey is beautiful, full of ups and downs, losses, pain but God still lives here with us. I pray nothing but life and grace in abundance for you. Happy birthday,” she wrote.

Eight months ago, the all-grown teenager was named the official heir of Ssemwanga’s properties following a family meeting held in his father’s home in Nakaliro village, Kayunga District. According to local media, Pinto was represented by Zari and his two younger brothers, Raphael and Dido, due to what was termed as immigration challenges in their adopted home, South Africa. 

“As all people who have come here today to see us make Pinto the official heir of Ivan Ssemwanga. I would like to request Dido to carry the picture of his elder brother Pinto as the entire clan acknowledges him as the true heir of his father,” Pinto’s uncle was quoted. Consequently, he put an end to a long standoff between the socialite, who has two other children with Tanzanian singer Diamond Platnumz, and her late hubby’s family over his property.

Zari got married to Ssemwanga in 2011 in a traditional ceremony, but the pair separated in 2014. In October of the same year, she moved on and reportedly met Platnumz and went on to date the singer for four years. The separation, according to the tycoon’s family head, Herbert Luyinda, hit Ssemwanga hard and was never the same upon learning that Zari was pregnant and engaged to the Cheche star.

“As a family, we have no doubt that Zari is the cause of Ivan’s suffering that led him to die. Ever since the two separated, Ivan has never been the same. Our son loved that woman so much. He took care of her in all situations but Zari with her bad manners decided to dump him for Diamond. This dis-organised him so much. He started developing hardships in his heath. He has been telling me all that happens in his life. But every time he would come to confide in me, Zari’s name wouldn’t miss. She treated Ivan badly,” Luyinda said in a 2017 interview.

During an interview with Celeb Select, Zari turned the heat on Ssemwanga and confessed that she was the victim. She narrated that she stayed in the abusive relationship for the sake of her children before bolting when she couldn’t take it anymore. “Ivan was not really a bad guy he was just obsessed. He was really obsessed with me that the obsession grew into something else. It got to a point it was physical, really nasty physical. I tried working on our relationship. I booked counselling sessions for us but he would pay the counsellor to say that he came but he didn’t. We tried the elders and our family to intervene but nothing,” she said.

Couple’s pain after woman offers to hold baby, then disappears without a trace



A couple’s five-month-old baby boy is missing after a woman who visited them in Utawala offered to hold him to allow his mother time to finish washing her clothes on Wednesday afternoon.

At the time, baby Harold Ochieng was crying and his mother, 24-year-old Pauline Ilenje, who had strapped her baby to her back, needed time to finish with her laundry.

“She requested to hold him until I was done with cleaning and I agreed,” said Ochieng’s mother.

Unbeknown to her, the intention of the woman, only identified as Aisha, was not good. Pauline unstrapped her child and handed him over to the woman without any qualms. Aisha is said to have been visiting the couple’s neighbour that day.

After finishing her laundry, Pauline realised that the woman who had offered to hold her baby had vanished.

What followed later were hours of panic and a painful search for her baby as the reality that her child had been stolen started hitting home.

Shocked at the turn of events, Pauline made frantic calls to her husband David Ochieng (43), a casual labourer, but she could not reach him.

“I then rushed to Utawala police post to file a report where the officers told me to look for my neighbour and report back to the station with him,” she said.

At around 1pm, her husband called her and informed her that he would join her in the search but, before getting home, he called their neighbour asking for the whereabouts of his visitor.

At around 4pm, the neighbour returned and left in a rush but the couple caught up with him and reported back to Utawala police post for questioning.

She came and left quickly

“Officers at the station then asked us to search for Aisha, whose house we traced to Githunguri in Kiambu County. However, we did not find her there. The door was open but no one was inside. Neighbours told us they spotted her come and leave with a baby and a bag,” Pauline’s husband says.

The couple then returned to Utawala to update the police on their findings, but they were referred to Ruai police station where they were asked to continue with the baby’s search until yesterday afternoon.

“We wondered how we could continue with the search even past curfew hours but we did it anyway without a police escort,” said the baby’s father.

The couple decided to return to Githunguri where they were hopeful that they might find the woman at her house.

Unfortunately, the woman had not returned. Instead, they found a young girl identified as Diana who confirmed that the woman lives there but was not in.

Yesterday, the couple returned to Ruai police station where they recorded a statement and shared their child’s image for circulation.

“The officers informed us that they are tracking the woman’s phone to establish her whereabouts,” Pauline told the Nation.

Police also questioned the couple’s neighbour and the girl who was found at the woman’s house in Githunguri.

“Our neighbour now claims that the woman was his laundry person and not the girlfriend,” she said.

Officers at Ruai police station declined to comment on the matter.

Grace Ekirapa: I’ve been unable to access DJ Mo since cheating scandal



Grace Ekirapa, who hosts NTV’s gospel show Crossover 101, has revealed that she had not been in touch with her co-host DJ Mo since rumors he was cheating on his wife Size 8 rocked the internet a fortnight ago.

Ever since reports emerged that DJ Mo, real name Sammy Muraya, was cheating on his wife of seven years Size 8 causing a social media frenzy, the DJ was barred from co-hosting the show with Ekirapa and is thought to be busy trying to glue his marriage together.

Weighing in on the scandal rocking the marriage of her co-host, Ekirapa revealed that she had been trying unsuccessfully to reach out to DJ Mo.

“I haven’t spoken to him and to be honest. It’s been hard for me to get to him. My phone calls haven’t been going through, I know it’s been difficult for him and I think when he is ready he will talk to me. Meanwhile the show has been going on without him but that’s the management’s decision.” Ekirapa revealed during an Interview with Radio Jambo.

She, however, felt DJ Mo should be given a second chance.

“What I will have to say is, when you get saved you won’t stop sinning, you can’t be perfect but there will be consequences. We make mistakes. DJ Mo is an amazing guy and if there’s a chance of working with him again, I would love that.” She added.
