Billionaire buried with 100 million, Lawyer sues to open grave to retrieve buried money

0

A lawyer has requested that the grave of Ugandan-born South Africa-based late billionaire, Ivan Semwanga, be opened up.

The 39-year-old billionaire was buried with a large amount of money said to be about 100 million Ugandan Shillings by family and friends.

The lawyer, Tugume Gideon, had deposed that Semwanga was buried with money, a legal tender that no one is allowed to hoard.

Ugandan media reports that Gideon had sued to have the grave opened and the money removed, claiming that the money is a legal tender and should not be locked down with anyone.

The lawyer has consequently petitioned the high court to have Ivan Semwanga’s grave dismantled .

Ivan’s crew, who call themselves the “Rich Gang,” had poured hundreds of notes into the late billionaire’s grave, along with a generous quantity of champagnes.

Semwanga was buried Tuesday, May 30, at his home in Kayunga, Uganda.
