The M’membe’s have been at loggerhead with President Edgar Lungu’s Patriotic Front government following the liquidation of the once flamboyant independent daily The Post.
According to a tweet by Slyvia Masebo, Mutinta is currently detained at Force Headquarters in Lusaka.
Masebo, a close ally of the M’membes, is an official of the UPND which was founded by Mutinta’s father – Anderson Kambela.
It’s unclear why she is arrested but indications suggest charges are connected to the work of The Mast which has emerged as a critical voice following the closure of The Post.
