Kuna baadhi ya wasanii wetu ambao walianza kufanya uhuni uhuni ndani ya mitandao ya kijamii jana tumeweza kumkamata msanii nyota Tanzania Diamond na tumemfikisha polisi na anahojiwa kutokana na picha chafu alizozirusha vile vile inabidi hata binti Nandy naye akamatwe ahojiwe,“ said Dr Mwakyembe in Swahili.
