President Magufuli is clearly not playing around as he has taken up measures to end drug abuse in Tanzania. It is reported that police in Dar es Salaam on Saturday arrested a number of people including actress Wema Sepetu. The arrest was in regards to drug trafficking, something that the government is trying to fight.
She was arrested alongside other artistes like TID, Dogo Hamidu, Chidi Benz among others due to ongoing investigations on drug trafficking.
An audio has surfaced and Wema can be heard saying that they were forced to mention names of people who are in to drug trafficking but she can’t mention someone she doesn’t know.
Dar es Salaam Provincial Commissioner, Paul Makonda, released a list of suspected drug traffickers who were ordered to record statements at the police station.
Diamond Platnumz has also found himself in the mix as he too has been asked to record his statement in the ongoing investigation.
What shocked many was the fact that Vanessa Mdee has also been asked to record her statement on the said matter. Other artistes summoned are Idris Sultan, Clouds FM media director Ruge Mutabaha and Ray C among others.
