If allowed U.S. President Donald Trump wouldn’t mind towing this line, considering the number of insults he gets daily from twitter alone, thanks to his not so conventional style of leadership.
Meanwhile, a 35-year-old Zambian studying engineering at a privately-owned university who has been identified as Edward Makayi, has been arrested for allegedly insulting President Edgar Lungu and some of his government officials on Facebook.
According to Zambian police spokesperson, Esther Mwata Katongo, Makayi is accused of creating a Facebook account under fake names and defaming the president.
She added that he is also accused of defaming some government ministers, members of the governing party, the President’s press aide and the head of the Zambian police.
The defendant is in custody. He is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, July 27, 2017.
