The Rwandan woman sentenced to two years in prison for indecent dressing has received international attention.
Mugabekazi Lilliane, 24, was arrested and charged with public indecency on August 9, 2022, after wearing a revealing dress to a concert by popular French musician Tayc in Kigali.
She was arrested and remanded in jail while she awaited her fate in court.
“She is suspected of public indecency,” the prosecution’s spokesman, Faustin Nkusi, told AFP after her arrest.
News of the arrest sparked outrage, but Rwandan government officials, including former justice minister Johnston Busingye, backed the move.
On Thursday, August 18, Lilliane was sentenced to 2 years imprisonment by a Rwandan Court.
