A 31 year old man is arrested for defaming President Lungu on Radio Show

The Zambian Police have arrested a 31 year old man of Luanshya’s Zaoni Street for making derogatory remarks against President Edgar Lungu during a phone in programme on Millennium Radio, Lusaka. 

Fred Maanya is said to have insulted the Head of State on March 28, 2018 around 06.50 hour and he introduced himself as Chanda from Kabwe. 

“The suspect is alleged to have called the radio Station where he introduced himself  as Chanda from Kabwe and later made derogatory remarks against the Republican President. Investigations revealed that the suspect was not Chanda but Fred Maanya of Luanshya and not a Kabwe resident as he suggested,” police spokesperson Esther Mwaata Katongo has stated.

“He is currently detained in police custody and will appear in Court soon.”
