The young South Sudanese female singer Zahra Angelo popularly known as Queen Zee has been released from prison after 18 months.

The ‘First Lady’ singer had been in prison since February last year for allegedly taking part in an incident which resulted in the murder of Mustafa Acuil Tito, a police officer, in Juba.

Queen Zee and other ten suspects accused of the same murder case were released from prison yesterday after the court proved that they were innocent.

Peter Mathias, defense lawyer of Queen Zee and her colleagues, says his clients were released after the high Court in Juba ruled that there was no “enough evidence” presented against the defendants.

Mr Mathias told Eye Radio that there were “contradictions in the prosecution evidence”.
