A 22-year-old Tanzanian actress known as Elizabeth Michael Lulu would be serving a 2-year prison sentence for the death of his ex-boyfriend Steven Kanumber, whom she was dating until his death.
According to reports, the unfortunate incident happened on April 7th, 2012 when she was just 18 years old and the late ex-boyfriend Kanumba was 28 and a prominent local actor.
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.
He further begged the court to forgive his client saying that she is her family’s breadwinner. 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 manslaughter. Her lawyer vowed to challenge the ruling even as Lulu was sent to prison to start serving the two-year term.
