GBM DENIES EVER RECEIVING FUNDS FROM MINISTRY OF FINANCE

Lawyers for renowned Lusaka Businessman, Geoffrey Bwalya Mwamba have threatened to sue the Times of Zambia, Daily Nation and News Diggers for publishing a false story that he had received K70million from Ministry of Finance.

The papers wrote; ” GBM GOT K70M, Court hears how millions of jwacha were transferred from Treasury into ex-Defence Minister’s accounts”.

Following a testimony by an Esther Chisola, a Banker at Atlas Mara Limited in the Lusaka Magistrates’ Court, the newspaper alleged that Mr. Mwamba had received K70million.

The facts, however are that Ministry of Finance paid Curzon Logistics-Hongkong this company after a court settlement.

Mr. Mwamba merely provided debt-collection services.

Lawyers from Ellis & Co have given the newspapers 48hrs in which to retract the false assertions.

The lawyers stated that false assertions were malicious.

  1. I have questions for you GBM:

    1. How many days after payment did you transfer the money to Curzon Logistics-Hongkong?;

    2. How much was transferred to Curzon Logistics-Hongkong?;

    3. How much was your commission paid for acting on their behalf?)

  2. I do not see the slander here. Receiving and paid are different words. You can receive something without being a beneficiary but cannot be paid for something which is not yours. If you received as an Agent, that to me is a correct representation of the facts.
