Zambia's Hichilema in SA after time in prison

United Party for National Development President Hakainde Hichilema warns that Zambia faces violence if talks with President Edgar Lungu fail, journalist Crystal Orderson reports.

Hichilema is in South Africa after spending 127 days in prison.

The opposition leader told Orderson that he was surprised at the news of his release as he believes he was wrongfully arrested.

Lesotho's former deputy prime minister Mothetjoa Metsing says his life is in danger and has fled the country for South Africa.

Orderson says Metsing was a key ally of Lesotho's former prime minister and is accused of planning a coup.
