Zambian Opposition Leader Arrested on Live TV

Police have arrested opposition politician Saviour Chishimba for allegedly defaming President Edgar Lungu, a move the opposition condemned as intensifying the crackdown on political opponents. His arrest comes after the main opposition leader, Hakainde Hichilema, was arrested in April after being accused of endangering the life of the president when his motorcade refused to give way to a presidential convoy.
