Police in Lusaka have charged and arrested Lusaka lawyer Martha Mushipe.
Ms Mushipe who is a senior legal counsel for the UPND has been charged with being in possession of seditious materials.
The charge relates to a confidential document entitled Strategy of domination PF against opposition UPND 2015 – 2016 and beyond” which among others involves use of violence against the opposition.
The document is alleged to have been authored by former Justice Minister Dr Ngosa Simbyakula and two others.
This is after her lawyer firm located at Millennium Village Complex in Lusaka was searched by police in April this year.
Her lawyers told Journalists that Ms. Mushipe has been denied police bond and that they have now sought the intervention of the Lusaka Magistrate Court to secure her release.
