Post Newspapers owner Fred Mmembe has now taken his frustration to another of his ex-employees. This time Kingsley Kaswende has been sue by Mmembe for Libel. Kaswende is a former reporter at the Post newspaper. Kaswende wrote an article in the Bulletin Magazine alleging that M’membe is supporting Justice Minister Wynter Kabimba to succeed President Michael Sata.
Mmembe thinks this is offensive and has since instructed his friend Mutembo Nchito’s (Director of Public Prosecutions) law firm Nchito and Nchito to take Kaswende to court.
But all that the magazine wrote is true so Kaswende will just have to plead justification that what was written is very true. But of course the truth does not matter in Zambia especially if the person taking you to court is part of the presidency and also appoints judges.
The people sued here are advised to get in touch with ZWD on [email protected]
