James Banda has sued ZNBC and its reporter Inutu Mupango Mwanza for broadcasting defamatory lies that the son of the former president is on the run and being pursued by International Police (INTERPOL).
The court summons was delivered to ZNBC and to Inutu in person by lawyers from Eirc Silwamba and company.
And ZNBC sources have disclosed that editors tried to persuade her to drop the story as it was not true but she bulldozed it because she is the girlfriend of State House spokesperson George Chellah and is under instructions to air negative stories against people perceived to be enemies of the PF regime.
James Banda recently sues Mpombo for defamation and won the case and is currently being assessed for damages – how much Mpombo will pay Banda.
Inutu is married to a Mwanza but everybody knows she is bonking George Chellah.
