Chilufya Tayali says he had a wonderful experience during his stay at Kamwala Remand Prison.
Mr. Tayali who was arrested last week was allowed to go home this morning after he met the bail conditions for his release.
The Lusaka Magistrate Court on Wednesday granted Mr. Tayali a K5,000 cash bail with two working sureties after he pleaded not guilty to one court of criminal libel.
“I have just arrived home, from Kamwala Prison, after being granted bail by Magistrate Kaoma. I was arrested on Thursday 13th April, 2017 for libel,” he said.
“I want to thank all of you who used to come to see me and bring me food. I sincerely appreciate your care and love. I am also very grateful to all the inmates, especially the UPND top officers and cadres. I really enjoyed your company. The inmates at Kamwala prison were best the best. Thanks very much,” he said.
He added, “I can’t forget to thank all the nice police officers who dedicate their whole to serve citizens. It was good to be in your care and the security that you offered us while in the cells and as you took us to court.”
“I had a wonderful experience but allow me to clean myself up then I will share with you everything and reflections.”
Mr Tayali said God works in many ways and this was one way in which God revealed himself to him in many ways including the people he met, especially UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema whom he shared the cell with, for a few hours, at the Magistrate.
“We had very good interaction just the two of us. God bless to all of you for now, we will chat later,” he said.
