Congolese singer, Koffi Olomide found guilty of rape by French court


Popular Congolese musician, Koffi Olomidé has been found guilty of statutory rape by a French court.

Real name Antoine Christophe Agbepa Mumba, the music star was found guilty of raping one of his dancers when she was 15 years old.

He has been handed a two years suspended jail sentence by a court in Nanterre, outside Paris, France.

The BBC reports that he was sentenced in absentia as he was a no show.

The 62 year-old international music composer, producer and singer now faces an arrest if he commits further offences.

He was ordered to pay a fine of 5,000 Euros in damages to the former dancer and the same amount for illegally bringing three women into France.

Olomidé was first charged in 2012 with aggravated rape, after he was accused of seizing a young lady’s passport and raping her between 2002 and 2006, but the charges were reduced.
