In Zambia, a journalist is being prosecuted. Plus ca change, you may say, but this journalist is being prosecuted for obscenity. So what?, you may say. true, but this journalist is, well, let the BBC tell you:
She sent photos to government members showing a woman giving birth without medical help during a strike in Zambian hospitals in June. The baby died.
Read that again. A woman giving birth in traumatic and fatal circumstances, is obscene.

I'd go to suggest that President Rupiah Banda is the one who is obscene.

Spread the word, it might get back to him.
