‘Concerned’ fans have begun to plead with popular Tanzanian star, Vanessa Mdee, to report to the country’s central police station in the wake of security clampdown on drug smuggling business in the country.
Mdee, Wema Sepetu, and 2 other top Tanzanian celebrities are wanted by the police for selling and abusing drugs.
It is understood that Mdee is among the few lucky Tanzanian celebrities who did not spend time in police custody unlike Sepetu and the others who were arrested on Thursday following stories that they are involved in drug smuggling business.
Sepetu’s best friend, Petitman is also said to have been beaten ‘mercilessly’ while in police custody for refusing to name those who are also involved in the drug business.
Reports also have it that Mdee “is caught up in the mess as her current boyfriend, Juma Jux, has been linked to selling drugs in the past, something his ex girlfriend is believed to have introduced him to.”
Local media outfit, Ghafla reports that Mdee was earlier asked to report to the Dar Es Salaam central police station.
However, at that time when the report was issued, the singer was said to be in South Africa where “she was shooting the MTV Shuga series with Nick Mutuma and the crew.”
Because of this, she was asked to be back on 6th February or else she would face some serious consequences.
Her apparent reluctance to report to the police station as she continues to enjoy her stay in Johannesburg has caused her ‘concerned’ fans to start begging her to come and clear her name before the matter gets worse.
