Elizabeth Michael ‘Lulu’ has been sentenced by a Dar es Salaam court for the death of Steven Kanumba. The lass was Kanumba’s girlfriend at the time of his death.
For starters, Bahati used to be obsessed with Elizabeth Lulu before Diana Marua came into the picture. The Kenyan gospel singer confessed he traveled to Dar es Salaam in November 2016 to meet Lulu but the Tanzanian actress gave him the cold shoulder.
Lulu was today Monday November 13th sentenced to two years in prison. Dar es Salaam High Court found the actress guilty of manslaughter.
The court heard that Steven Kanumba and Lulu were lovers. Lulu was found guilty after it was determined that she was the last person to leave the deceased’s house on April 7th 2012 when he died.
Kanumba’s younger brother Seth Bosco told the court that Lulu had an altercation with the deceased 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 reveals that Lulu came out of the room and informed her that Kanumba had collapsed. The two called a doctor who declared Kanumba dead upon examining him.
Kanumba died when Lulu fatally pushed him against the wall. Esther Zephania, a detective who arrested Lulu on that fateful day, told the court that wall of the room where the actor died had black blood-like stains.
Lulu’s lawyer Peter Kibatala requested the court to pardon his client. He argues that she committed the crime when she was still young.
The lawyer further begged the court to forgive Lulu saying that she is her family’s bread-winner. Kibatala asked the court to free his client so that she could continue providing for her family.
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 jail term.
