Musician Chama Fumba, alias Pilato, has been arrested for conduct likely to cause the breach of peace. Mr Fumba arrived at Lusaka Central Police station around 11:15 hours yesterday in the company of his lawyers, Marshal Mucende and Kabesha Mulilo ahead of interrogations.The song in question is a remix of the legendary Nashil Pischen Kazembe’s Aphiri Anabwela, but featuring Pilato’s lyrics which call President Lungu “a drunk,” among several other ‘insults’.He was questioned for close to an hour before a warn and caution statement was recorded from him and an arrest effected. Lusaka Province police chief Charity Katanga said Mr Fumba was charged with conduct likely to cause the breach of peace. “Yes, I can confirm that Fumba ,31, has been arrested and detained by police following summons issued to him, for now he would be detained in custody until he meets the bond conditions,” Ms Katanga said.Mr Fumba was detained in connection with the production of a song entitled, ALungu Anabwela, alleged to have defamed President Edgar Lungu and vexed some sections of the public.Fumba faces a maximum sentence of six months in prison or a fine if found guilty.https://youtu.be/-qrDQwKR1IY
