Idris Sultan charged with using someone else’s SIM card, not bullying Magufuli

On May 19th, word leaked that Tanzanian comedian Idris Sultan was arrested and detained for cyber bullying the Tanzanian President.

In a viral clip, Idris can be seen laughing as an old photo of Magufuli wearing an oversize suit cracked him up.

We all laughed, but authorities did not take it lightly and took him in in relation to cybercrime offenses.

The 2014 Big Brother Africa Winner was held at the Oysterbay Police station in Dar es salaam.

But it seems those cyber bullying offenses do not hold water.

If he wasn’t held on charges of mocking Magufuli’s suit, what has he been charged with?

Using a phone registered in someone else’s name. Yup, you read that right.

Idris appeared before a magistrate 8 days after his detention, and has been charged with contravening the electronic and postal act 2020.

Charges suggest that he used a SIM card registeredΒ to a man named Innocent Maiga for several months without bothering to register the line in his own name.

The case was adjourned and he is expected back in court on June 9th.

His fans are outraged that the Tanzanian Government have come up with such a ‘silly’ charge and have reacted sharply.

During an interview with Talk Media Africa, he revealed what he has been up to ever since he left the house.

I have never been so grateful in my life. It has been super amazing. I’m learning so much and have been rated as one of the most loved actors and comedians in East Africa. I have made a few mistakes in the past three years and they have made me who I am (an ass, lol). I started a few companies, some performed well and some failed, and here I am, about to launch a massive shoe brand. It has been great, I swear,” he told the writer.

Idris got the opportunity to host the Abryanz Style and Fashion Awards 2016 alongside Vimbai, and he saw that as an opportunity to try out something new and get out of his comfort zone.


He narrated his experience, saying, “First time hosting a big awards show beginning to end, and I must say it felt amazing thanks to Vimbai by my side because I might have fainted or sweat like a footballer. By the time I was on stage, I was surprised the way I was cheered, each time bigger than the previous. It’s either they loved me or someone said, ‘Here he comes, guys, clap clap or he ll cry.'”
