Tanzanian Model Hamisa Mobetto was summoned by the Tanzanian government for posing half naked and circulating the photos on social media.
The government has been regulating the type of content that Tanzanians can share online and this includes half naked photos with the aim of maintaining decency.
Hamisa who has been in the entertainment industry went on social media to apologise to he government and her followers for sharing her bikini photos online and promised never to share them again.
I would like to apologize to the public. I have been working as a fashion entrepreneur in Tanzania and would like to to apologize to my fellow citizens and social media users. I apologize for sharing photos which have been deemed indecent (Photos showing me half naked).
I would also like to thank the the team that called me and asked me to defend myself before them. They made a fair judgement with regards to my case and for that, I would like to thank them.
Everyone should take precaution when using social media in Tanzania as there are rules and regulations governing what one is bound to share on social media. All my fans should focus on sharing my decent photos and should also post about my business.”
