The trial of Zambia’s main opposition leader, Hakainde Hichilema, and five others starts today at a High Court in the country’s capital, Lusaka.

The United Party for National Development (UPND) leader and five others were arrested in April and brought before a Magistrate court on three charges treason, disobeying lawful orders and using insulting language.

Hichilema was arrested during a police raid on his home in the capital Lusaka. 

He was said to have endangered the life of the president when his motorcade refused to give way to a presidential convoy.

According to Africa news, the 55-year old has been in custody for 126 days. 

A journalist at the court tweeted about how filming and taking photos had been banned.
