Cameroonian popular crossdresser, Shakiro and co, Patricia who were arrested a few months ago have finally been handed a 5-year prison term for promoting homosexuality.
The final verdict was handed down on the two crossdressers, Shakiro whose real name is Djeukam Loic Medrel, and Patricia whose actual name is Roland, today, May 11, 2021, after a series of court sessions.
Shakiro was arrested by the Cameroonian police in February 2021, with two others, including Patricia, for practicing homosexuality. Shakiro however denied the accusations, stressing that he is just an internet comedian and who he is, is just a personality he created.
However, his argument failed to convince the judge and he and his fellow crossdressers will now spend the next 5 years in prison.
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.
