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.
