Gail Enganamouit: what Is Her Fate In Cameroon
Gail Enganamouit, what’s her fate in cameroon ?
The Ex-captain of the national team, Gail, has been in the spotlight recently after the release of X- rated videos inform the general public about her s3xual orientation- lesbianism. What is then her fate in Cameroon ?
The Cameroon Penal Code states that, “whoever has sexual relations with a person of the same sex shall be punished with imprisonment from six months to six years and a fine from twenty thousand to two hundred thousand”. This is so in article 347 of the pernal code. So,the question is, What is her fate ?
A Cameroonian lawyer, Tezo Abanda, had this to say about her fate
” If the deed was done on Cameroonian soil, she could be prosecuted; yes ‘could’ because offenses against the people of cameroon are prosecuted by the legal Department if they deem it necessary” he said
He dded that, “It is therefore at the discretion of the legal Department to prosecute or not; it is even a largesse that they may start prosecuting and discontinue prosecution at their own will in what is known as a ‘nolle prosequoi”.
He further says that,”However, offenses against the people of Cameroon must be committed on Cameroonian soil that is against the territory, people or government of Cameroon”.
“If the case of the legendary Cameroonian Lioness, none of the above, implicating elements can be established,well we shall be left with nothing more to see than the already disturbing videos which I hope we all deleted as received” He opined.
Controversies say that her retirement at the age of 28 in 2020 from the national team may have been a way of “let me leave before i get kicked out shamefully”.
Considering the gravity of her case, kindly give your opinions in the comment section.
