The former Miss Tanzania was last Friday sentenced to jail for one year or pay a fine of Tsh. 2000,000. She instead paid the fine and was let go.

Rule

However, according to Attorney Emmanuel Elias, the Tanzanian sweetheart will not be able to run for office as she was sentenced for more than six years, Global Publishers quotes him.

“Ninachojua kuna sheria inayozungumzia suala hilo, kwamba kama mtu amethibitika kufanya kosa na Mahakama ikamwadhibu kwa kifungo kinachozidi miezi sita atazuiwa kugombea uongozi, na hili ni suala la kikatiba,” Elias is quoted.

Lost opportunity

“Yaani Wema ni kipenzi sana cha watu lakini kutokana na kuhukumiwa zaidi ya miezi sita basi amepoteza nafasi yake hiyo ambayo naamini kabisa mwaka 2020 angeweza kupata ubunge bila kipingamizi kikubwa,”, another judge was quoted during Wema’s sentencing.

However, there are other attorneys who revealed that she can run for office if she can overturn and win the case. According to Global Publishers, Wema has always shown interest in joining politics.
