A human rights organization founded by Faith Masupa cares for women and children in Zambia's prisons. Faith offers lessons to those released and prepare them for life after prison. Her biggest dream: a school in the largest prison of the country.
A Lusaka magistrate has acquitted Zambia’s main opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema on the charge of use of insulting language towards law enforcement officers. Hichilema remains in custody facing treason charges.
Hakainde Hichilema had been charged with treason for failing to give way to President Lungu's motorcade. Once a stable democracy, Zambia now risks becoming increasingly authoritarian.
Hakainde Hichilema has been arrested on treason charges after allegedly refusing to allow the presidential motorcade to pass down a street. Hichilema contested last year's election results after a narrow defeat.
48 opposition lawmakers suspended for boycotting a speech by President Edgar Lungu say they will challenge the ruling in court. But analysts argue that there is dwindling confidence in Zambia's judicial system.
