The police were instructed by Home Affairs deputy minister Nixon Chilangwa and Greyford Monde to detaine Jacob.
On saturday morning, the two ministers visited the police station where Jacob was detained.

But Jacob Mubambo has mantained that he will not stop visiting the area because of his arrest.
He has assured the people not to be intimidated by the PF and police.
