Miriam Mwanawasa in trouble for publishing libel

Local business man Rajan Mahtani says appropriate action will be taken against former president Levy Mwanawasa’s daughter Miriam for libel.

Miriam posted an article on Facebook claiming that Dr Mahtani wants to inherit their farm in Masaiti District on the Copperbelt province.

But a statement issued by the Mahtani group of companies explains that though Dr Mahtani had an interest in Finance Bank, that bank was sold to Atlas Mara which took over all assets and liabilities.

The statement said that Dr Mahtani had a personal and professional relationship with late president Levy Mwanawasa even before he became president and that relationship has continued between the two families despite the death of Mwanawasa.

‘It is therefore, defamatory, scandalous and malicious for Miriam Mwanawasa to accuse Dr. Mahtani of wanting to ‘inherit’ their family property, and appropriate action will be taken in due course,’ read the statement.

    Can ALL Zambian’s find and carry out a citizen’s arrest on the owner of the controversial 48 flats which have been forfeited to the State by Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC). There should be someone who worked on the site, supplied or delivered materials, handled paperwork – titles deeds, bills or invoices. LET’S BRING AN END TO THIS NONSENSE.

    Very unfortunate comments from Mirriam Mwanawasa, but why has she said that. Details are missing from your story. Why does she say that and why is Mahtani bringing in the issue of Finance Bank and Atlas Mara? Has Atlas Mara foreclosed on the farm and what is the reason. To the common man Mathani was Finance Bank and vice versa.I hope all liabilities of Finance bank were inherited by Atlas Mara as approved by Bank of Zambia.
