Wema Sepetu to be arrested over intimate viral video

Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu is set to be arrested following a court order that was issued on Tuesday.

According to reports, the Kisutu Resident Magistrate’s court has issued an arrest warrant for the former Miss Tanzania, after she failed to appear in court over intimate videos that surfaced on social media, a few months ago.

The prosecution said that Wema had gone against her bail terms, after she failed to appear in court.

Ms Sepetu’s lawyer Reuben Simwanza however, told the court that her client went to the court for the hearing as it had been ordered, but she became unwell and could not enter the court room.

Intimate video

In October last year, Wema Sepetu found herself on the wrong side of the law after the video surfaced online showing her in bed making love with a man she identified as her "future husband".

She was then asked to record a statement with the police and later on banned from participating in any film-related works indefinitely with a fine of Tsh10 million.

The ban was later on lifted after six months.

In Tanzania, anybody who violates the electronic laws is supposed to be banned for six months, in addition to barring them from using social media or participating in any works related to music or Film.
