Chikwanda sues Fr Luonde

Fr. Richard Luonde

MINISTER of Finance Alexander Chikwanda has sued Anglican priest Richard Luonde for alleged defamation.
According to a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court, Mr Chikwanda said Father Luonde caused to be published in the Post newspaper edition of August 18, 2014, a story headlined: “Chikwanda is double-dealing with the mines and eating with two hands.”
Mr Chikwanda claimed that other alleged defamatory stories that were published in the Post under headlines: “Fr Luonde challenges Chikwanda to explain his role in Sigma Enterprises” and “Zambians are living dangerously by having a Finance minister whose interest is to protect mining companies so that his supply business remains profitable,” were defamatory.
