“Details of the matter are that on March 7, 2024, using a named newspaper tabloid, Zimba is alleged to have published an article,” he stated.

Mwale said the article was likely to incite hatred and disaffection against the government as established by law and discontent among the people of Zambia.

“Zimba was not detained but was allowed to leave after the statement was recorded,” he stated.

Mwale said that investigations into the matter were ongoing.
