Jailed dishonest comedienne Mai Titi Felistas Murata in serious trouble, faces another fraud case


Zimbabwean comedienne Felistas Murata, known by her stage name Mai TT, was sentenced to 9 months in prison after being found guilty of defaulting on community service and theft of trust property.

Prosecutors revealed they had to search 8 years of records to confirm Mai TT had defaulted on her 2015 community service sentence for assault.
For the theft charge involving a borrowed car, she received 12 months with 6 suspended.

Mai TT showed little emotion during sentencing. Her lawyer claimed she was unaware of the warrant issued in 2015, but the court found Mai TT dishonest and lacking remorse.

The magistrate also found Mai TT guilty of perjury and sentenced her to 3 months for defaulting on community service.

While considering her sentence for theft, the court took into account that she has children and did not financially benefit from the crime. However, a fine was deemed to trivialize the offense, so she received 6 months in prison.
