Popular Zambian anti-corruption crusader, Fumba Chama, has been arrested after he returned to his homeland from his exile in South Africa.
The “Rat in the Pot” crooner was arrested at the Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in the capital city of the country, as soon as he arrived in Lusaka.
Global Human Right organization, Amnesty International has condemned Chama’s arrest as a “shocking affront to justice”.

In a press statement released on Thursday, Amnesty international said: “Pilato [as the musician is known to his fans] is not a criminal. He is an activist and artist. He should not spend a single night in jail. He must be released immediately and unconditionally.”
Chama fled to South Africa earlier in the year after receiving death threats over his song, Koswe Mumpoto (Rat in the Pot), which captioned the corrupt nature of the country’s President, Edgar Lungu and his ministers. In the track, Chama sang that the ruling elite was behaving like rats that steal food from the pot – a criticism which was strongly rejected by the supporters of the ruling party.
