Zambian: Opposition leader arrested for ‘defaming’ President Lungu

Zambian police on Monday arrested a leader of the opposition for saying President Edgar Lungu used public funds in a trip to a holiday resort last year, a spokeswoman said.

Erick Chanda is a regular critic of President Lungu’s government.
