MMD president Nevers Mumba has said he was brutally apprehended and accused of five treason-related charges by the Democratic Republic of Congo authorities.
He has disclosed that he was arrested by the DRC soldiers who were armed with machine guns, despite earlier refusing reports about his arrest in the neighbouring country.
“I would like to make it clear that my arrest was tough and brutal. It was clear I was headed for tough times because the charges were treason related but I would like to thank Government for the intervention,” Dr Mumba said in Kitwe on Tuesday, according to Times of Zambia.
He regretted being in the DRC during a period he described as decisive.
