Tanzanian actress and model Wema Sepetu is finally free after a magistrate court dismissed a case against her for leaking sex tape online.
However Wema’s freedom came after a dramatic episode at the Kisutu Resident Magistrate court on Thursday morning (06.05.19), Nairobi News reported.
Wema arrived for the hearing looking dapper in a three-piece brown pantsuit and was set free by the court after the state prosecutor, for the second time, failed to produce witnesses in the case.
A few minutes later, when she thought she was finally free, police pounced on Wema and rearrested her as she was leaving the court premises.
A video that captured the incident showed Wema briefly engaging police officers in an argument before boarding the police land rover. She was eventually released a few hours later.
Moments later, Wema informed her 5.3 million followers on Instagram that she was finally free but that she would be taking a break from the social media and the public.
On June 17, 2019, as reported by The Sauce, the same court had remanded Wema for a week at Segerea Prison after she violated bond terms of the case.
