Kanumba died from a head injury in April 2012 after he fell in his bedroom and hit his head on the wall.

His 17-year-old girlfriend Elizabeth “Lulu” Michael was charged with manslaughter in connection with the death. 

Kanumba was taken unconscious to Muhimbili National Referral Hospital where he was declared dead.

Michael was arrested and stayed in remand for almost a year for investigation and later, the charges were amended to involuntary manslaughter.

In October 2017, she testified to the High Court of Tanzania that after Kanumba confronted her, he took her to his room by force and started beating her with a sword while he was intoxicated. 

Michael claimed that Kanumba fell and hit his head while beating her with the sword.

In 2017, she was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for his death and sentenced to two years in prison but her sentence was then changed from two years imprisonment to community services.
