Zambia's Home Affairs Minister, Newstead Zimba, had his wife arrested after she assaulted a pregnant woman she suspected was her husband's girlfriend, AFP reports from Lusaka.

Nora Zimba and three of her sons stormed the woman's house, breaking window panes and destroying household items. She packed some things into her car, claiming they had been bought by her husband. The woman fled in a bath towel but was captured by one of the sons.

Mrs Zimba then took her victim to the minister's office and presented him with her. Mr Zimba summoned policemen but his wife bundled the woman into her Mercedes Benz, drove back to the victim's house and taunted her further. The minister then sent police to arrest his wife.
