After about 9 months in prison, finally BONGO Movie actress Elizabeth Michael Kimemeta, alias Lulu, on Tuesday last week breath a little air of freedom...because the case is still in court. The actress broke into tears at the High Court in Dar es Salaam when she was released on bail, thanking God "for making it happen".
"God is everything. I thank him very much for this development. I also thank all the people who have been supporting me all along," Lulu said amid sobs just few minutes after High Court Deputy Registrar Francis Kabwe verified her bail conditions set previously by Judge Zaiban Mruke.Lulu told reporters that being released on bail was just a first step and she needed more support and prayers from well-wishers ahead of her trial on manslaughter case she is facing. Several people, including her co-bongo movie actors and actresses thronged the court's building to witness the memorable event.
Her advocate Peter Kibatala later dismissed rumours that immediately after being released, Lulu would visit the grave of her former boy friend, Steven Kanumba, t the Kinondoni Cemetery. "This is not true at all. We have advised her to concentrate on the case and nothing else," the advocate said.
