Like the double dealer he has always been, barely 24 hours after endorsing caretaker president Edgar Lungu, Enock Kavindele has paid glowing tribute to the Post newspaper. Kavindele says any government that tries to close the Post is wrong.
Lungu and his minions in whatever is remaining in PF have being trying to close the Post from the time Lungu became president. They have set the tax agency ZRA and police on the post to see how they can close it after direct intimidation failed. The PF of Lungu has on numerous occasions arrested Post journalists but their schemes always fail in court.
On Thursday, Kavindele endorsed Lungu for the August general elections. On Friday he was at the Post newspaper condemning the PF government for attempting to close the Post.
‘Keep The Post open, keep it going [Egar Lungu], and if someone [like Lungu] has issues, I’m sure these can be discussed with the Post management, says former rich man but now broke vEnock Kavindele. Kavindele,
In his message ahead of The Post’s 25th anniversary which falls on July 26 kavindele said closing the newspaper would be the worst idea.
When asked what his advice was to leaders that have pushed for the closure of the newspaper, Kavindele responded: “My advice is, keep The Post open, keep it going! And if one has issues, I’m sure these can be discussed with the Post management. The Post has always been found useful by people who are on the other s i d e w h e n t h e y ’ r e downtrodden. I’m aware of attempts to close The Post in the past, but these failed.
Kavindele made his now finished money by selling bloody diamonds on behalf of slain Angolan rebel leader Jonas Savimbi.
Savimbi and his fellow bandits and killers were not allowed to trade outside Angola but controlled wells of diamonds during the way that killed thousands of people. Savimbi therefore depended on agents in other countries to sell his loot for him and buy weapons. Kavindele was the main agent in Southern Africa. We actually have a lot of data on this.
