Late Tanzanian movie star Steven Kanumba will be re-buried.. A Dar es Salaam court earlier this week directed that Kanumba’s girlfriend Lulu Michael be jailed for two years after finding her guilty as charged.
Flora Mtegoa, the mother of the late Kanumba welcomed the court decision saying that “justice has prevailed over her son’s murder”.
“Kwa sasa sina la kusema ila naishukuru sana Mahakama kwa kutenda haki, pia niishukuru sana Serikali yangu lakini pia nikitoka hapa nitakwenda makaburini kwa ajili ya kumzika upya mwanangu Kanumba,” said Flora Mtegoa.
Translated to mean: “For now I have nothing to say, but to thank the court for ensuring justice. Equally I thank my government and when I live here I will go to the graveyard to burry my son.”
Lulu is said to have accepted her jail term as she told her family members and lawyer not to appeal her sentence. The actress seems to have accepted her fate and said that she cannot interfere with Gods plan.
Her lawyer Peter Kibatala who had hinted an appeal confirmed that his client had requested them not to appeal as she was ready to serve her term as ordered by the court.
Lulu is currently at a women’s prison in Dar es Salaam. The Assistant Superintendent of Prisons, Inspector Lucas Mboje confirmed that she was brought there as a normal prisoner and she was treated like other prisoners.
