Mulilo Nkhoma, an official from the Zambia Congress of Trade Unions (ZCTU), said implementing the IMF economic policies without regard or concern for workers' rights will not be accepted by workers. (Daily Nation)

-- Zambia's leading opposition leader said he was forced to sleep on a cold floor for five days when he was arrested last month.
