Mother to late Stephen Kanumba speaks out after Lulu Michael was freed from Jail

Lulu had been accused of Killing Kanumba accidentally

The actress had been sentenced to a two-year jail term on November 13, 2017 for accidentally killing her fellow actor Stephen Kanumba.

According to Kanumba’s mother, Flora Mtegoa, has not been able to sleep after receiving news that the actress had been freed and will now be serving a community service sentence.

“Tangu alipopata tetesi za msanii huyo akutoka jela, amejikuta nakosa usingizi na kuumwa presha. Na kutokana na suala hilo, imenilazimu kwenda kwenda kwenye maombi kwa ajili ya afya yangu.” Said Mama Kanumba

She added that Lulu should have at least served one year in jail after the court ruling.

“Licha ya kuwa si yeye aliyemuhukumu, Lulu alipaswa kukaa hata mwaka mmoja ili roho yangu iridhike lakini ndio hivyo, Siku zote maskini hana haki." Hata hivyo, amewashukuru wote waliohusika kumtoa na kwa sababu mimi sina hela na najua watu wataanza kunitusi mitandaoni kwa sababu hiyo lakini yote namuachia Mungu” said Mama Kanumba

Community service sentence

On Monday, the Police Officer In charge of the Prisons Department Lucas Mboje, disclosed that Lulu was released over the weekend and would now serve a community service sentence.

“Lulu amebadilishiwa adhabu na ameachiwa juzi Jumamosi kati ya saa 2 hadi 3 asubuhi. Hii si kwamba ameachiwa huru, bali amebadilishiwa adhabu na atatumikia kifungo chake nje, kitaalamu tunaita ‘community service’” said Lucas Mboje.
