Hunt on for Mwanakatwe slanderer

MARGARET Mwanakatwe.

MINISTER of Finance Margaret Mwanakatwe will engage the office of the Attorney General and Zambia Information and Communications Technology Authority to establish the original source of a slanderous article accusing her of blaming late President Michael Sata over Zambia’s debt.
An article purported to have been authored by Mrs Mwanakatwe is making rounds on social media in which she is accused of saying that Zambia’s current debt is because of Mr Sata.
Mrs Mwanakatwe said in a statement issued yesterday that she cannot engage or participate in the slander, ridicule, or badmouthing of the late President for whatever reason.
“I, Margaret Mwanakatwe, Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for Lusaka Central constituency to this day holds late President Michael Sata and my predecessors in the office of Minister of Finance in high esteem for the work they did in laying the foundation for speedy and widespread development of our nation,” she said.
