It has been a tough few months for the boss lady as her ex husband, Ivan Ssemwanga passed away only a few months ago following a heart condition.

Zari announced her mother’s departure on Instagram in a heartfelt message and described her mum as ‘our old sun.’

It’s with deep sorrow that my family and I announce the death of our lovely mother who passed on this morning. May her soul rest in peace, May Allah forgive you your sins and grant you Jana. You will forever be loved our Old Sun, us as your kids were given the best from God as our mother. We appreciate all you did for us. We will forever cherish you Mama. Sleep well?
