A court in Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, has detained a 24-year-old woman for wearing obscene clothing in public..
Last Thursday, a Kikukiro Primary Court judge denied Ruwa Mugabekaj Lilian bail and demanded that the prosecutor detain her for 30 days while the investigation continues.
RwaMugabekazi Lilliane, a Rwandan, was arrested on August 7, 2022 for improperly dressed. She was charged with public indecency.
She wore a sheer dress that was described as “disgraceful” to attend a concert by popular French singer Tyke. She was arrested eight days after her concert.
A photo of her in a fishnet dress at a concert was posted on social media, leading to her arrest.
Article 143 of the Law Determining Crime and Punishment in Rwanda states: If convicted, he/she shall be sentenced to imprisonment not less than six months but not more than two years. ”
