Breaking: Convicted Cameroonian Transgender Shakiro Freed

Cameroonian popular crossdresser/transgender Loic Njeukam AKA Shakiro and friend Mouthe Roland AKA Patrician who were arrested months back for practicing homosexuality have been set freed.

According to a member of their defense team, their release application was accepted and they will be freed at the next hearing which will be published later. They have thus been granted “provisional release.”

Cameroonian renowned human rights Lawyer, Barister Alice Nkom who has been defending the two also took to her official Facebook page to share the news.

Shakiro, Patricia, and a few other transgenders were arrested on February 8, 2021, and later slammed a 5-year jail term for practicing homosexuality; an act that is clearly prohibited by the Cameroon Penal code.

While several Cameroonians on social media had applauded the state for arresting homosexuals like Shakiro and co, some public figures in the Country including the renowned Lawyer and political figure, Barister Michelle Ndoki, Humans Rights defender and LGBT Activist, Barister Alice Nkom and UK based blogger and LGBT activist, Bandi Kiki, had outrightly condemned the arrest, describing it as a clear violation of humans rights.

Article 347-1 of the Cameroon Penal Code prohibits sexual relations with a person of the same sex with a penalty of between six months to five years imprisonment, as well as a fine of CFA francs 20,000 to 200,000.
