The Zambia Police Service has arrested and charged UNZA lecturer Austine Mbozi with the offence of expression and showing hate, ridicule and contempt to people because of their tribe.
Police Spokesperson Esther Katongo says this is contrary to sector seventy of the penal code of the laws of Zambia.
Mrs. Katongo says the suspect has since been released on bond.
The Police Spokesperson told ZNBC News that the public will be advised as to when the suspect will appear in court.
Mrs. Katongo further warned the public to stop issuing statements that promote tribal hate using social media as this constitutes a crime in Zambia.
Dr. Mbozi is accused of having issued tribal remarks against another tribal grouping in Zambia.
