Zambian Activist-Singer Pilato Released on Bail

Fumba Chama, popularly known as Pilato, has been granted bail after being arrested last week as he returned from South Africa, where he had been living in self-imposed exile. Pilato fled to South Africa in January after receiving death threats over his song, Koswe Mumpoto (Rat in the Pot), which was interpreted as being critical of President Edgar Lungu and his ministers.
