    It only happens in Zambia! I have never seen a country where politicians tell the police who and when to arrest a person?

    1. In normal countries, the police decide to arrest an individual according to the law, not according to a directive from a politician.
    2. My thoughts- we need to relook at our laws again to curb the abuse. Our laws state that a person must not be detained for more than 48hrs without charge.
    A person in position of authority, who detains another person for unreasonable period must be made answerable, individually. Otherwise, people in position of authority are knowingly abusing the law to torture their perceived enemies, because they know they will always go Scott free. Very annoying!
