To the best of my recollection, there isn’t any law, at least in +256 that says a journalist, however prominent, can’t be held for questioning by the police.
Police spokesperson Fred Enanga says Samson Kasumba’s arrest is not related to his work, as a journalist but he is being investigated together with others for alleged ‘subversive activities.’
Enanga explained that that detectives from Electoral & Political offenses departments took a keen interest in his case following information relating to subversive activities he was involved in.
A Search at his residence has also been conducted by the investigative department this evening.
Sedition, in other words, means conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state.
