Chansa Kabwela 8 Sept 2009
On trial after distributing graphic images car park birth

When a strike by Zambian health workers left one woman forced to give birth to her baby in the car park of Lusaka hospital, newspaper editor Chansa Kabwela, decided to distribute two graphic images of the woman in labour to highlight the effects of the strike. Kabwela now faces jail after being charged with distributing obscene material with intent to corrupt public morals. As her trial resumes, Jane talks to BBC correspondent Jonah Fisher about a case which has prompted many Zambians to sign a petition in support of the journalist.
