Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu can now breathe a sigh of relief after Kisutu Resident Magistrate cleared her of Indecent exposure charges.
The Kisutu Resident Magistrate court on Thursday dismissed her case, allowing the actress to walk free.
The decision of the court was made public by Sepetu’s lawyer Albert Msando.
“Mahakama ya Hakimu Mkazi Kisutu leo imemfutia @wemasepetu shtaka la kusambaza video isiyo na maadili chini ya Kifungu 225(5) cha Sheria ya Uendeshaji Makosa ya Jinai na KUMUACHIA HURU. @wemasepetu alishtakiwa kwa kosa hilo Mwezi Novemba, 2018. Adhabu kwa kosa hilo ni faini isiyopungua Shilingi Milioni Thelathini au Kifungo kisichopungua miaka 10 jela au vyote. WITHOUT PREJUDICE: KILA MMOJA ANAPASWA KUJIFUNZA MATUMIZI BORA YA MITANDAO YA KIJAMII. Kutukana, kutumia lugha chafu, kudhalilisha, kukashifu, KUSAMBAZA picha zisizoruhusiwa nk ni makosa na ADHABU zake ni kali sana. Usichukulie poa. #TheDon” he wrote
The actress also spoke moments after the ruling, saying the past week has been tough for her and vowed to take a break from the public eye for some time.
“Hakuna kipindi nimepitia wakati mgumu kama hiki wallahy… Nadhani nahitaji Break from everything… I’ll miss you guys..” she said
The former miss Tanzania spent seven days at Segerea prison after failing to appear in court.
The actress has been facing indecent exposure charges after her sex tape leaked and was widely shared online.
