Tanzania actress Wema Sepetu has suffered yet another blow just days after the Tanzanian Film Board banned her from partaking in any film-related activities.
The ban was effected by the film body after the actress’s intimate video with a Burundian national identified as Patrick alias PCK leaked online.
And now, the Tanzania Drama and Film Actors Association (TDFAA) Kinondoni branch has also banned the actress, who is a member of the association.
Speaking to the press, Masoud Kaftany, the association’s spokesperson revealed that this is not the first time Wema has been involved in a similar scandal.
“Hii si mara ya kwanza kwa Wema kufanya mambo ya ajabu, aliwahi kuanika video ya makalio tukamuita akaomba radhi,” he said.
On October 25, Wema issued a public apology to the country after the video leaked online.
According to reports, police are looking for Patrick, who is alleged to be a conman and drug dealer.
Illegal drug possession
On February 4 2017, Wema was arrested with marijuana, with sources revealing that the government was after Wema to confirm if she was selling and using the drug.
Her ex-boyfriends Diamond Platnumz and Idris Sultan, singer Vanessa Mdee and rapper Ney wa Mitego, were also questioned by police.
