LUSAKA (Reuters) - Zambia's chief prosecutor was arrested on Thursday over corruption accusations, police said, in the first high profile case since new President Edgar Lungu was elected promising to end graft.
Lungu, elected president in January after the death in office of ex-president Michael Sata last October, promised voters during his campaign that he would deliver cheaper food, fuel and punish corrupt government officials.
