Mozambican artist in trouble for posing nude with national flag on Women’s Day

For posting semi-nude pictures of herself draped in the national flag, Yolanda Boa, a female artist in Mozambique could be jailed for six months for “insulting a national symbol”.
Boa on the occasion of the country’s Women’s Day on April 7 released two semi-nude photos of what she described as the “Mozambican Woman is Good” collection.
The photos which went viral on social media attracted a lot of mixed reactions.
The government has since raised issues with the use of the national flag, with the Culture and Tourism minister threatening to sue the artist for denigrating the image of a national symbol.
Boa could face a jail sentence if she is found guilty of insulting the flag, local media Povo Newsreports.

The development has since drawn opposing views from the general public on social media.
Here’s how people reacted when the information was first shared by Twitter user, Zenaida Machado.
