Journalists spend night in jail as CPJ demands their release

The two Journalists who were picked up by Zambia police at 02 hours on Tuesday have spent the night in jail among hardcore criminals without being charged.
Police raided Clayson Hamasaka and Thomas Zgambos’ houses in the night, arrested them then started investigating them while they remain detained.
But the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has joined other local and international organisations condemning the harassment of the journalists.
“The raid and arbitrary detentions fit a pattern of harassment on the part of authorities,” said CPJ’s Africa Program Coordinator, Sue Valentine. “If police have no charges to file against Clayson Hamasaka and Thomas Zgambo, they should be released immediately.”
Hamasaka was moved to Woodlands Police Station where he spent the night.
