Also sharing the news with her 5 million followers on Instagram was Wema who noted that it has been a trying time in her life.
“Hakuna kipindi nimepitia wakati mgumu kama hiki wallahy… Nadhani nahitaji Break from everything… I’ll miss you guys..” she wrote.
Earlier on in the week, the former beauty queen complained of contracting a disease while behind bars.
“Kwanza mbu ni wengi, walining’ata sana. Nilipimwa malaria, uti na vipimo vingine, lakini ugonjwa haukubainika, alichonishauri daktari wangu ni kuwa ipo haja ya kupima vipimo vingine ili kujua,” she said.
She also noted that her doctors are yet to properly diagnose her and have advised that she tests for Dengue, a mosquito-borne viral disease.
“Hapana, wakati naenda mahabusu nilikuwa nimeshapona muda mrefu, matatizo niliyapata huko. Kwanza nikiwa mahabusu niliumwa sana na tumbo, kichwa na mwili kuishiwa nguvu, hadi siku natoka sikuwa sawa kiafya,” she said.
