State of emergency: police delete critical facebook page after arresting, torturing owner

The secret police last Wednesday arrested one of the persons running a facebook page called ‘Zambia Accurate News Services’, tortured her and forced her to give them passwords which they later used to delete the page.

A  Mutinta Lushoma was picked up from her home on Wednesday night in Lusaka and thrown into cells where she was mortally beaten/tortured until she disclosed her Facebook password to intelligence officers who deleted the page on Friday.

Mutinta is believed to still be in detention at  unknown location.  She  was tortured when she at first refused to disclose her accounts. She was inhumanly beaten and tortured until she gave bloody hungry officers her password who eventually deleted her facebook account.

According to intel, a group of  OP experts working together with ZICTA are hunting administrators for online media that are opposed to the government.
