“He is detained in police custody for the subject offence,” she said.

And after his arrest, Mr. Tayali wrote on his Facebook page that police apprehended him because of his ‘few’ criticism against the Head of State.

“Just because of a few criticisms on President Lungu, they have arrested me. I guess they don’t want me on the ballot,” reads his post.
