ATLANTA---Grammy-nominated singer Akon has
a goal of bringing solar-powered electricity to one
million homes in Africa by the end of the year, and
the singer is using millions of his own dollars for
Akon started an initiative called "Akon Lighting
Africa" this month. The singer, who was born in the
US, of Senegalese parents, and was reared in both
countries, said he was "pained" after seeing people
in the continent without electricity.
"How could you build any infrastructure with no
lights?" he said in a recent interview. "Without elec-
tricity, you can t even operate the machines to build
roads or bridges. ...That s what created the initiative."
Akon s project aims to install solar equipment in
households to improve energy sufficiency. He s part-
nered with Give1 Project, ADS Global Corporation
SA and public-private solar energy companies. The
Senegalese-American also met with government lead-
ers about the project in Senegal, Gambia, the Ivory
Coast and other countries.
"After certain hours, it s completely pitch-black,"
he said. "Even for myself, as a child growing up in
Africa, it wasn t that bad, but I know how life could
be so much easier if they had those necessities."
So, far, Akon said his initiative has financed ten
light posts and power for 100 homes in Mali and
Guinea Conakry. The economic and trade company
China Jiangsu International will pre-finance all of
the light posts, the singer said.
"I saw what simple lights did to those people there,"
he said. "It was like a huge festival when that light
switch was hit. Now, kids can study during the after-
hours. It s a luxury. It touched me."
He also wants to hold a concert at the end of the
year in Africa to celebrate the initiative. (AP)

LAGOS---Four young men were convicted of gay
sex and whipped publicly as punishment yesterday
in an Islamic court in northern Nigeria, a human
rights activist said.
The four were among dozens caught in a wave of
arrests after Nigeria strengthened its criminal penalties
for homosexuality with the new Same Sex Marriage
Prohibition Act in January.
The men could face further violence in prison if
human rights organisations do not come up with an
additional fine of 20,000 naira each meted out yesterday
by a judge in Bauchi city, Dorothy Aken Ova, convenor
of the Coalition for the Defense of Sexual Rights Net-
work, said. The four were sentenced to 15 strokes plus
a year s imprisonment if they cannot pay their fines.
Aken Ova said the men, aged between 20 and 22,
should not have been convicted because their con-
fessions were forced by law agents who beat them.
She said they had to lie on the floor of the court
to be whipped on their backsides.
The men s families, mainly subsistence farmers in
rural areas where everyone knows everyone else, refused
an offer of legal representation because they preferred
to negotiate with the judge and get the case behind
them, said Aken Ova. She said the families were embar-
rassed by the stigma attached to homosexuality, which
many highly religious Nigerians consider an evil import-
ed from the West.
The hearings in Bauchi city, capital of the state of
the same name, had been delayed from January, when
a crowd tried to stone the accused men outside the
court and demanded the judge pass the death sentence.
Security officials had to fire into the air to save the
men and disperse the crowd.
Under Islamic Shariah law in some north Nigerian
states, homosexuals can be sentenced to death by
stoning or lethal injection, though that sentence has
never been enforced. (AP)
