Bank of Uganda sued over Semwanga grave cash

Inset is the late Ivan Semwanga and the cash he was buried with

The issue of burying Ivan Semwanga with cash has ruffled some feathers. Aplus Funeral Management and Bank of Uganda are being sued for the act.


Bank of Uganda responds 

"It has come to our notice that Uganda shilling notes were thrown into a grave during a recent burial ceremony.

The money, which was so mishandled, is likely to be defaced, soiled or damaged; and thereby no longer serve the purpose for which it was intended.

The shilling is valuable because Ugandans collectively ascribe value to it and entrust the preservation of its integrity to the Bank of Uganda. Because of its grand purpose and value it holds for us, the shilling deserves the status of a national symbol. This implies that our national currency should not be handled in a manner that is indecorous.

Accordingly, the public is urged strongly to refrain from any act, conduct or use of shilling notes and coins for purposes other than those for which the national currency is intended; or in a manner that results in the defacing, soiling or damaging of the Uganda shilling currency notes and coins."

"One thing about life is that nothing is permanent, everything is temporary. Life is always about enjoying every moment and every part of your life because it's not permanent. At some point, things fall apart either by a divorce or death. I repeat nothing is permanent that is why you got to enjoy every moment of your life."

Meanwhile, a one Mgugu Abbey in a letter dated Jun 2, 2017 has rushed to High Court suing the funeral directors and the central bank. Abbey wants the money that was buried with the Rich Gang boss be removed from the grave, which literally means exhuming the body.
