IN ZAMBIA – Ex-Zambian minister arrested for ‘unlawful escape from custody’

Former Zambian Tourism minister Sylvia Masebo was Wednesday arrested for “unlawful escape from custody.”

Ms Masebo’s arrest came soon after a Lusaka magistrate’s court entered a nolle prosequi in an abuse of office case she faced.

She was accused of having staged an unlawful procession with members of the opposition United Party for National Development (UPND) after her initial case was put off to another date weeks back.

Ms Masebo was interrogated at Lusaka’s Woodlands police station.
