    The video vixen, Sandra Khan, was arrested at an airport in China in February 2013, with illegal drugs hidden in her stomach.

Sandra Khan, the video vixen in popular hit-song Binti Kiziwi, returned to Tanzania in January this year after serving a 5-year jail term in Hong Kong, China over drug trafficking.

Khan’s period in lawful custody ended in December, 2019.

The video vixen was arrested at an airport in China in February 2013, with illegal drugs hidden in her stomach.

Khan was discovered to be in possession of the drugs after she complained of stomach complications while passing through the X-Ray detector at the airport.

She was admitted at a health facility within the airport, and scans showed that she had hidden pellets of illegal drugs in her stomach.

After being discharged from hospital, Khan was arraigned before a Chinese court. Two years later, she was declared guilty of drug-trafficking. She was sentenced to five years in jail after spending two years in remand.

Khan is currently living in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The model shot to public fame in 2007, when Tanzanian musician Z-Anto, whose real name is Ally Mohammed, featured her as the main video vixen in his then-popular hit song Binti Kiziwi.

In the music video, Khan played the role of a woman who had a hearing disability, but was in love with Z-Anto. The two, due to communication barrier, would exchange messages using sign language and written notes.

Z-Anto visited Khan at her Dar es Salaam home on Friday, February 21, K24 Digital understands.
