Rokia Traore, African Pop Princess Imprisoned In France
Protests and petitions are emerging all over the world to defend the Malian Pop icon Rokia Traore after she was imprisoned in France. Full story below… Reports and allegations claim that the entertainer “kidnapped” her own daughter from the child’s father after learning that he may have molested her.
Unfortunately for her, a court ruled that she had to give the five year old child back to her alleged abuser which meant she violated the law when she refused to do so.
She was arrested in Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport on Tuesday as she got off a flight from Bamako and has been in custody since.
Now thousands of people are unifying to call for the mother to be released and for her child to be protected from the danger she believes she will face if her father is allowed to raise her.
