While in Kenya we joke a lot about socialites lying about their age every year whenever celebrating their birthdays, In Tanzania, lying might get you in trouble.

Actress Wema Sepetu has been summoned by Tanzanian government body Baraza la Sanaa la Taifa (BASATA) for allegedly lying about her age. 

While celebrating her birthday on September 28, the Bongo Movies actress shared a photo wearing a red gown and claimed she has clocked 30.

“30 years old queen... I promised to say the truth on my exact day...September 28th 1990, I was delivered from the womb of Mariam Athman Sumbe. I am happy I'm celebrating 30 years of my life," she wrote.

Fans trolled her in the process claiming she was way older and has been lying year in year out about her age.

Some noted that she participated in the 2006 Miss Tanzania beauty pageant when she was 19-years-old, which means she should be 33 years now.

In turn, Basata took note and promised to follow up on the matter.

“The issue of Wema's age is currently under investigation and we've scheduled meetings with her. Because another government department is responsible for determining one's age, we've already communicated with them and they're working on it. You will soon know which steps will be taken thereafter,” he said.

It's not the first time, however, Wema will be visiting Basata with an explanation to give. In 2008 she was summoned by the body and later taken to court following a steamy video she shared on Instagram.

Wema posted an Instagram video with a man in bed and kissing.
