Shakiro, also known as Bobrisky, and one other individual were sentenced to five years in jail by a Cameroonian court for “attempted homosexuality.”
It should be noted that Shakiro, also known as “Cameroonian Bobrisky,” and two other people were arrested in February for reportedly engaging in homosexual conduct, which is illegal in Cameroon.
On Tuesday, May 11, Shakiro, real name Loic Njeukam, and Patricia, also known as Roland Mouthe, were convicted.
The two received the maximum sentence of five years in prison and fines of 200,000 CFA francs ($372.44), their lawyers told Reuters.
Besides “attempted homosexuality,” they were convicted of public indecency and failing to carry identification.
“This is a political decision,” said one of the lawyers, Alice Nkom, who vowed to appeal the verdict.
“It’s Yaounde (the central government) that said these people must not bring homosexuality to Cameroon.” she added.
