Wema Sepetu

Tanzanian sweetheart Wema Sepetu has faced bitter days after posting an intimate video of herself on Instagram.

The 30 year old was arrested and arraigned in Kisutu Resident Magistrate Court, in Dar Es Salaam.

Wema was brought before Resident Magistrate Maira Kasonde at 10 am where she was kept waiting until 12 pm before being charged for posting indecent content online.

Her arraignment comes a day after she apologized for what she had posted on October 15, 2018.

The apology did not stop the Tanzanian Film board from banning her from acting or appearing in any film in Tanzania.

“You have disgraced the nation by making viewers imitate your behaviors, habits and culture, which are inappropriate. You have gone against the country’s national values and brought shame to it,” a board member said.

Wema pleaded not guilty to the charges and was released on a TSh10 million fine.
