The Zambia police last night (Tuesday) abducted a Kabwe based journalist in their continued raid and hunt for journalists suspected to be running the Zambian Watchdog.
And the Zambian government on Tuesday blocked the Zambian Watchdog on all the networks including MTN that had earlier rejected the suppression of the most popular news website in Zambia.
But our technical team has moved the site to another domain which is accessible in Zambia http://zwd.cums.in

On the abducted journalist, the police waylaid Wilson Pondamali on his way to Kabwe from Lusaka Tuesday evening. He is detained at some police station in Kabwe. The police did not even bother to inform his family that they had arrested him but kept him in prison overnight while his family phoned everyone to locate him as his phones were switched off.
At 05 hours Wednesday morning, the police raided Pondamali’s house in Kabwe and started searching the house after ambushing the family.
