Ruling

Giving the ruling on Friday 20 July, the judge ruled that Sepetu must pay the fine or will risk being imprisoned. Three workers under the actress’ payroll have been released after the judge found them innocent of any wrongdoing. It was reported that Wema was found with rolls of bhang and she was also caught smoking. However, the case had been temporarily thrown out after the magistrate ruled that the evidence presented to court was contradicting.
