Former Tourism Minister Silvia Masebo has pleaded not guilty to the charge of unlawful assembly.
Ms Masebo took plea along with four others who equally pleaded their innocence.
Masebo and four others took plea Thursday morning before Lusaka Resident Magistrate Prince Mwiinga.
Her co- accused are Benson Mbewe, Joyce Sakala, Kennedy Kabunda and Emmanuel Chabo.
Magistrate Mwiinga has set December 3rd for mention and setting of trial dates.
Masebo and her co-accused allegedly committed the offence of unlawful assembly on September 15, 2015 in Lusaka on Nationalist Road and Independence Avenue when they tried to visit the University Teaching Hospital (UTH).
Freedom of assembly appears to be nonexistent under the PF police state as they want to control and monitor movements of perceived political enemies.
