Wema Sepetu skips court hearing on drug case, travels to India for emergency surgery

Wema Sepetu has been battling in court to prove her innocence ever since she was arrested on February 4th 2017 in a police drug sweep. The former Tanzanian beauty queen was found in possession of marijuana in her house.

Wema spent close to a week in police custody before she was finally presented in court. She was charged with being in possession of 1.80 grams of marijuana.

Wema’s case has been dragging in court for a year now. She was supposed to appear in court on Tuesday May 29th 2018 for the hearing of her case, but she was not there.

Traveled to India

Wema’s mother Miriam Sepetu represented her daughter in court on Tuesday. She told Kisutu resident magistrate Thomas Simba that her daughter had traveled to India for an emergency surgery. This after government prosecutor Constantine Kakula sought to inquire why Wema had not appeared in court.

The prosecutor was shocked by the report from Miriam Sepetu, he argued there was no evidence to prove that the defendant was sick.

Miriam produced documents to prove her daughter had indeed traveled to India for surgery. She however didn’t disclose the condition Wema Sepetu was suffering from.
