The mother of city socialite Zarinah Tlale Hassan has passed away.
Zari announced the passing of Mrs. Halima Hassan on Thursday morning in a social media message.
“It’s with deep sorrow that my family and I announce the death of our lovely mother who passed on this morning.”
She added: “May her soul rest in peace, May Allah forgive you your sins and grant you Jana.”
The socialite further said her mother 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.”
Mrs. Halima suffered heart complications a few weeks ago and has been hospitalised at Nakasero Hospital.
She got worse and was put in Intensive Care Unit [ICU] where she breathed her last today.
This comes shortly after Zari lost the father of her children and businessman, Ivan Ssemwanga.
