burialIvan ‘Don’ Ssemwanga, a flashy Uganda tycoon and former husband of  Zari  Hassan (current wife of  popular Tanzanian musician Diamond Platnumz), is making headlines even in his death. His cronies poured out money into his coffin and he was buried with it, leaving Uganda and the world talking.  A concerned citizen, Abey Mgugu, has dragged  A-Plus funeral management and Bank of Uganda to the High Court seeking orders that the body of late Ivan Ssemwanga be exhumed and all the currency notes that were buried with him removed. Mgugu argues that the purposes of the said monies put into the grave were misused. “Burying a dead body with money is a wastage of public property which violates social and economic rights of other people,” he argued. Mgungu wants an order that the said money be put back into circulation  for purposes of respecting the currency of Uganda and other countries like South Africa and the United States of America. Mgugu wants a declaration that Bank of Uganda willfully and negligently failed to ensure the respect of the said currencies and is also seeking a declaration that he be allowed to recover the money from the grave on behalf of Ugandans. semwanga petition 1 On Tuesday this week at Nakaliro village in Kayunga,  socialites of the so called Rich Gang team, were seen throwing money into their colleague Ivan  Ssemwanga’s grave, an act for which Mgugu  seeks general damages.Ivan ‘Don’ Ssemwanga Ivan Ssemwanga,39, died on Wednesday May 25, 2017 at Steve Biko Hospital in Pretoria, South Africa where he was based. Semwanga was one of the members of the self styled Rich Gang group well known in both South Africa and Uganda.

Police brutality is slapping someone cooperating and already in cuffs – musician NY Melody

NY Melody

The Ghana Police Service arrested 29 people on Tuesday after dispersing a violent anti-cost protest in Accra with tear gas. The protest took a turn for the worse when protesters engaged in a violent exchange with police, injuring 12 officers and leading to the arrest of some of the protesters.

Following the incident, many Ghanaians, both inside and outside the country, have come out to condemn the police and protesters’ violent actions.

One video that went viral from the incident showed a police officer beating a handcuffed protester who was clearly not resisting arrest. The video sparked an online outrage, with “Be My Love” singer NY Melody among those quick to condemn the officer’s actions.

The musician later posted a video in which he expressed his disappointment at seeing the video. For him, the police officer was abusing his authority, and slapping someone who was already handcuffed was completely unnecessary.

“We live in a democracy, and in a democracy, we have the right to demonstrate when something bothers us.” The police, also known as “Peace Officers,” are supposed to keep the peace and order no matter what environment they are in.”

Imagine what would have happened if the protesters had retaliated in response to the slap. The cops should have known better; they should have some emotional intelligence. “Police brutality is slapping someone already in cuffs who isn’t resisting arrest.” he said.
