FAZ general secretary Ponga Liwewe is dragging Maureen Kawengele to court for defamation over an article in which she accuses him of shady business dealings involving his company Mpila Zambia and the African football governing body CAF.

In a statement, Liwewe says the opinion piece authored by Kawengele and published by Zambia Reports on september 24 this year is “full of falsehoods.”

“Following a sustained social media campaign that has been carried out on the Zambia Reports platforms against me by persons with their own agendas, I have initiated legal proceedings against Miss Maureen Kawengele, the author of an opinion piece full of falsehoods and defamatory in nature,” Liwewe stated.

“I have instructed my solicitors in South Africa to begin legal proceedings against her to clear my name of the allegations made against me, both on Zambia Reports and her personal Facebook page. It is easy to sit behind a keyboard in South Africa to malign someone and to make false accusations. It is another to sit in a court of law where facts and evidence are required.”

Liwewe adds that it is unfortunate that Zambia Reports, which he says is supposed to be a platform for the dissemination of news and information, has allowed itself to be turned into a vehicle for carrying out character assassination and creating false innuendo.
