22-year-old Tanzanian Actress, Elizabeth Michael Lulu has been sentenced to 2 years imprisonment by a Dar es Salaam court for the death of Steven Kanumba, her ex-boyfriend, whom she was dating until his death.
Steven Kanumba who was a popular Tanzanian actor died after Lulu pushed him to the wall during an argument because of a call she allegedly received from another man
During the court hearing, Kanumba’s younger brother, Seth Bosco told the court that Lulu had an altercation with his brother on that fateful day. He explained that the two were quarreling because Lulu picked up a call from another man in the presence of the deceased.
Bosco further revealed that Lulu came out of the room and informed her that Kanumba had fallen. The two called a doctor who declared Kanumba dead after examining him
Esther Zephania, a detective who arrested Lulu on that fateful day, told the court that walls of the room where the actor died had black blood-like stains.
Lulu’s lawyer Peter Kibatala requested the court to pardon his client arguing that she committed the crime when she was still young.
The High Court, however, found Lulu guilty of unintentionally killing Steven Kanumba. Kibatala vowed to challenge the ruling even as Lulu was sent to prison to start serving the two-year term.
