In November 2017, Elizabeth Michael alias Lulu who was Kanumba’s girlfriend at the time was sentenced to two years in prison by a Dar es Salaam court for his death.

The court found Lulu guilty after it was determined that she was the last person to leave the deceased’s house on the day of his death.

After appealing the judgement, Lulu was allowed to serve the remaining term outside prison as community service, a move that did not sit well with Kanumba’s mother. She said Lulu should have been locked for at least a year before being released.

Later, speaking to EATV, Mtegoa said that she had forgiven Lulu.

“I don’t hate Lulu. My only focus is praying to God for justice; he judges both the rich and the poor equally,” she said.
