I left Diamond to teach kids to respect women, says Zari

Zari Hassan was in the country over the weekend for The Colour Purple event, hosted at the Uhuru Gardens. According to reports, the South African-based Ugandan businesswoman walked away with millions of shillings for covering the event. 

In an exclusive interview with Maina Kageni on Classic 105, Zari said why she had to let Diamond go after as a series of well-documented indiscretions by the Bongo star. 

"I loved him so much and everyone knows about that. You can go cheat there as a man but when it comes in with madharau, that is when it becomes too much. I felt that my integrity was so low. Like, when my big boys see Diamond misbehaving on social media, they will not have respect for women when they grow up.

"I asked myself, why do I have to settle for this? My children were insulted on social media. Being the fact that they do not have a father, they will know that in future they need to respect women, and that is why I left," Zari said, adding that she still loves Diamond despite leaving him. 

Meanwhile, Ringtone stormed Lion Place, where the radio interview was hosted, asking to present Zari with a new Range Rover Sport he had bought her. 

Speaking to Word Is, Ringtone said, "Zari, I know you love the Range Rover brand of cars. I know you can afford to buy one for yourself. One never refused a gift. I pray you accept this gift. 

Earlier in the day, Zari denied knowing who Ringtone is but promised to "google him".
