Wema, who was Miss Tanzania 2006 is facing charges of of sharing an explicit video on the internet, contrary to Tanzanian laws.

In October 2018, a video of Wema Sepetu having an intimate session with a guy she referred to as her ‘future husband’ surfaced online.

Following backlash, she was forced to apologise but the damage was done as she was banned from featuring in any film content in the country.
