Kalandanya tunes cost PF K13m


A JUDGE has ordered the Patriotic Front (PF) to pay over K13 million debt, with interest at the Bank of Zambia average short-term deposit rate, owed to Kalandanya Music Promotions for musical campaign advertisement’s done for the former governing party in 2021.
This was after Lusaka High Court Judge Charles Zulu found the PF in breach of a contract it had with Kalandanya Music Promotions proprietor, Bwalya Kalandanya, for musical services offered to the party.
Judge Zulu dismissed submissions by PF that Mr Kalandanya offered the services for free because of his “unreserved” love for organisation.
The adjudicator deemed the claims as “somewhat unsubstantiated” because the terms on their contract between the parties are writ large, or simply, clear and obvious.
“Secondly, the contract was drafted on the letter head of the PF, and executed at the party secretariat,” the judgment reads in part.
The court found that PF was liable to pay the debt owed to Mr Kalandanya.
“The plaintiff is entitled to receive K13,500,000 arising from the contract dated June 12, 2021. This represents the normal measure of damages since the claim is specific and represents special damages,” Judge Zulu said…https://enews.daily-mail.co.zm/welcome/home
