The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has started disposing of assets belonging to Fred M’membe’s Post Newspapers marking a giant step in wiping off his media empire built over 27 years. M’membe’s Post Newspapers is facing liquidation over a disputed K51 million tax debt that has seen creditors move in to recover what is owed. According to a notice circulated in the press by the ZRA Debt Recovery Unit, Post Newspapers assets will go on sale to the public including the printing press that had been the lifeblood of The Post Newspapers. The Post Newspapers Printing Press was top grade and will be a hot cake for those that had been praying to catch with M’membe at the peak of his powers. Other assets that will go on sale on April 22, 2017 are office and studio equipment, furniture and fittings and trucks. Viewing of the assets for prospective buyers has been set over two days on April 20-21. M’membe who is currently reportedly out of the country has been hit by a litany of court cases in what he claims is political persecution for his paper’s anti government stance. His wife, Mutinta has also been caught up with his business associates Nchima and Mutembo Nchito also on the receiving end of state terror. The Lusaka High Court, on the instruction of a group of former employees appointed a provisional liquidator in M’membe’s nemesis Lewis Mosho. Former Post Newspapers employee Abel Mbozi, Roy Habaalu and Andrew Chiwenda drove the final nail in their former Post Newspapers boss’ coffin by agreeing to be the ones that could sue M’membe in exchange for government jobs.

The Football Association of Zambia has finally acted on the un-sports manly behaviour exhibited by Nkana Football Club players and fans in their 2-0 loss to Zesco United in the Charity Shield final on Sunday. Nkana players Donashano Malama and Walter Bwalya caught the spotlight in a foul tempered encounter that saw the former sent off for stomping on Zesco player Ben Bahn while the latter shoved referee Wellington Kaoma. Fans pelted missiles on the running track forcing a four minute stoppage as the authorities tried to calm things down. Malama was sent off with Nkana down 1-0 while Bwalya got a yellow card for his act. Nkana fans were incensed igniting their long simmering beef with the whistle-man whom they accuse of having an axe to grind with them. FULL STATEMENT Football Association of Zambia PRESS STATEMENT (For Immediate Release) Football House, Lusaka 04 April 2017 FAZ will not entertain hooliganism in football The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has opened up investigations into the conduct of Nkana football club supporters during last Sunday’s Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity Shield final featuring Zesco United and Nkana at the Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola. As FAZ, we deplore the unruly behavior exhibited by Nkana football club supporters during last Sunday’s finals in which Nkana lost 2-0. FAZ is currently working closely with the Zambia Police Service and the Match Commissioner in compiling the necessary evidence. The Association will decide on the precise action to take in accordance with the disciplinary code. FAZ has zero tolerance towards hooliganism from any football club and will not hesitate to dispense disciplinary action against erring clubs. FAZ will not hesitate to ban supporters or clubs that indulge in behavior that doesn’t promote the spirit of fair play. All football clubs will be held accountable for their fans conduct. Our clubs should therefore, take the lead in sensitizing their supporters on the dangers of hooliganism both to life and property.

A women’s lobby group has celebrated the acquittal of a hubby killer Elizabeth Lungu saying her self-defence reasons were justified. Zambia has recentlty seen an increases in cases where women have prematurely ended the lives of their lovers. BELOW IS THE WOMEN’S LOBBY GROUP STATEMENT The Non-governmental Organizations’ Coordinating Council (NGOCC) welcomes the High Court landmark ruling in which Judge Betty Mung’omba has acquitted Elizabeth Lungu of Mtendere Compound for murdering her husband Anthony Nkhoma. This judgment resonates with our sentiments advanced in earlier statements that most of the women who kill their husbands do so in self defense. In many instances where women kill their husbands, investigations have shown that such women would have been victims of domestic violence who act in self defense. We further note that in the past, courts have found women in similar circumstances guilty of murder without giving due recognition of the circumstances that would have led to the death. We, however, wish to state that we do not condone any form of Gender Based Violence (GBV) whether perpetuated by women or men, neither are we justifying GBV perpetuated by women. Our call is to investigative wings to consider the extenuating factors in cases where women have been accused of murdering their spouses. We reiterate, our calls for families to get involved in resolving family problems in marriages and relationships where there is a serious breakdown of spousal relations for us to arrest the rise in cases of women accused of murdering their partners and vice versa. As a women’s movement, we applaud the judiciary for taking steps in appreciating the extenuating factors surrounding women who find themselves in cases of GBV. The rest remains for us as a society to engage couples into counseling and alternative dispute resolution so as to make marriage safe for all. Sara H. Longwe BOARD CHAIRPERSON The post NGOCC Celebrates Acquittal Of Hubby Killer appeared first on Zambia Reports.
