On Wednesday, Uganda was engulfed with grief when saddening news broke that former Mr. Uganda Ivan Byekwaso had passed on.
According to those who reported the shocking news revealed the source of the news was a one Bob Van Deer who wrote on his Facebook account saying,
Farewell thee Ivan Byekwaso. U have fought yo fight, lets carry on. Till we meet again
The post saw several news websites and individuals jump to it as they conveyed in their condolence messages.
However latter in the day, the same social media user bounced back saying that he was talking about another boxing trainer who had the exact name as the popular muscleman.
People I would like to clarify that its not Ivan Byekwaso the muscleman who has passed on. The one who passed just shares similar names and hails from Masindi. He has been boxing trainer at the police training school in Masindi
Having clarified on the information many people were seen relieved as others pulled down their condolence messages.
