An actress has been jailed for 90 days in Ghana for posing nude with her son on his seventh birthday.
The single mum Rosemond Brown, better known as Akuapem Poloo, 31, was found guilty of posting “obscene material” after sharing the naked snap with her son on social media in June last year.
She was also convicted of carrying out “domestic violence that undermines another person’s privacy or could harm someone’s dignity and self-worth”.
In the picture, her modesty was covered by her hair, while her son was wearing trunks.
But a judge presiding over the case in the capital Accra compared it to child abuse, warning “obscene materials” are on the rise in Ghana.
Judge Christiana Cann said: “The court is bothered with posting nude photos on social media.
“Did she ask for the permission of the child before posting the said picture? Did she respect the child’s rights? No, she did not.
“There is no doubt that apart from the canker of rape, defilement, physical assault, the publication of obscene materials is on the increase.”
