Former Mpongwe Member of Parliament Gabriel Namulambe was on Thursday evening picked up by Police and detained at Luanshya Central Police.
The former Foreign Affairs Deputy Minister was arrested on three counts of criminal trespass, naming someone a witch and theft.
Namulambe is believed to have gone around the nearby villages with a witch doctor forcibly evicting and fishing out suspected “witches and wizards”.
He has been arrested along with the witch finder.
Mr Namulambe, who is one of the prominent Lambas in Mpongwe area is said to have become paranoid and superstitious after deaths occurred among some of his close members of his family.
In January 2014, Mr Namulambe’s daughter and two of his grandchildren died in a road traffic accident on Kafue Road which left six others injured.
The witch-finder and Namulambe then set about to evict, fine and flash out those he suspected to be involved in black magic and caused the deaths of his loved ones.
Police picked up Namulambe after victims and members of the community laid complaints against the former Ministers criminal acts in the area.
