Diamond Platnumz's ex-lover, Wema Sepetu, settled for the court fine option as opposed to going to jail, she paid over Shs3Million after being found guilty for using and peddling drugs.
Tanzanian actress and Diamond Platnumz ex-lover, Wema Sepetu is all smiles after surviving a jail term of one year. The ex-beauty queen was saved after she decided on the court fine option as opposed to being locked up.
Sepetu was on Friday sentenced to a one year jail time after she was found guilty of using and abusing drugs. Her lawyer, Albert Msando confirmed the developments.
My client, Wema Sepetu, was found guilty of the two charges as per the ruling, she had an option of paying the fine or going to jail for a year. I would like to confirm that my client has paid the fine of Tsh2 million and having done that, she is free," Msando said.
The lawyer advised her to be a better role model to those that look up to her.
"If we are to be honest, we have a problem with our celebrities, a majority of them are into drugs. They are used to these kind of lenient judgments and that’s why they don’t seem bothered. But it’s high time they evaluate themselves and change their lifestyle. For Wema, I now expect her to be a real role model and preach against the use of drugs. It’s not cool at all," Msando added.
