Barotseland Prime Minister Arrested

Barotseland Prime Minister Clement Wainyae Sinyinda has been arrested by the Zambian security forces.

Barotse Freedom Movement (BFM) International Relations Secretary Shuwanga Shuwanga told the Watchdog that Sinyinda was arrested Thursday evening but released after several hours when scores of people surrounded the police station.

The people of Bartoseland on Wednesday resolved to secede from Zambia and create their own country. The Zambian government rejected the resolutions and described the move as treason.
