Why Diamond could spend 7-10 years in Jail if found guilty

Looming trouble for the WCB President

The four identified as Singer Nandy, Billnass, Diamond and Hamisa Mobeto were summoned to appear before the Central police station for questioning after their intimate videos surfaced online.

According to the Tanzanian constitution that was enacted in 2015, any person found guilty of sharing pornographic content or any content that goes against the law risk a jail term of 7-10 years or a fine of Tz20 million (Sh800,000).

2. Ponografia iliyo ya kiasheria au chafu kulipa faini isiyopungua shilingi milioni thelathini au kutumikia kifungo kwa kipindi kisichopungua miaka kumi au vyote kwa pamoja”

On Tuesday, the Police boss attached to Dar es Salaam Central station Lazzaro Mambosasa, confirmed that his officers arrested the WCB President for interrogations and later on released him on bail.

“Alihojiwa jana na akapewa dhamana, upelelezi unaendelea,” said Mambosasa

Mambosasa added that the videos shared by Diamond Platnumz on Sunday violates the law.

However, speaking in Parliament, the minister for Information culture and arts Dr Harrison Mwakyembe disclosed that Diamond and his fellow culprits will be arraigned in court, where their case will be determined.

The mention of their case has been scheduled on April 20, 2018 where the Judges will rule if they are guilty or not.
