Tanzanian actress Wema Sepetu has every reason to smile after a six moth ban that had been placed on her by BASATA got lifted.
Wema’s troubles began after a video was leaked online raising eyebrows.
Joyce Fiso, a representative from the film board, at the time said Wema was not to participate in any film until the board is satisfied that she has changed.
“The film board, as mandated by law, has decided to take the following action against Wema Sepetu: to lock her out of the acting and arts industry for an unknown period of time until the day the film board will be satisfied that she has corrected her behavior. The film board will closely monitor her,” she said
Taking to social media to show her excitement, Wema says that the last six months have not been easy.
“The six months I have been away from acting have been the longest six months of my life after my ban by BASATA.
I am acknowledging The Almighty first because were it not for him I would not be where I am today. I would also want to thank the Tanzanian government for giving me another chance.
I have learnt a lot in the last six months and I am happy to be doing what I am passionate about thanks to @tanzania_film_board .”
“They say that we should not focus with the past but rather we should focus on the future so I will not keep thinking about what transpired because it hurts me deeply.
I will focus on planning things afresh and be strong for now I have nothing much to say because I am so happy I cannot even express it.
To my fans I love you and especially for those who prayed for me to overcome this trying period .I have gone through so many challenges in the last 6 months ,Cant wait to Get back in Action.
Ladies & Gentlemen, Let the Voting Begin,don’t get tired of my upcoming posts because initially I had been banned from anything related to acting.”
