Dar es Salaam. Nine months after she was arrested, remanded and later charged with manslaughter actress Lulu was finally this week granted bail by the High Court.
Lulu allegedly killed without intention a local movie star Steven Kanumba on April 7, 2012 at Sinza Vatican in the city.
Though the bail was granted on Monday, the actress did not walk free due to the absence of the district registrar who was to ensure compliance of bail terms imposed by the court.
An emotional Lulu was full of tears as she hugged her mother after the bail conditions were met on Tuesday.
The court ordered her to surrender all her travel documents to the district registrar and she is barred from travelling outside Dar es Salaam Region without the registrar’s permission. As part of the conditions she is also required to report to the Registrar’s office first date of every month until completion of her criminal case.
The ruling by Judge Muruke followed an application by lawyers representing the actress who requested the court to grant bail to their client pending determination of her case.
