Post closed 1Provisional Liquidator for the Post Newspapers Lewis Mosho has started firing shots, first by dismissing company’s lawyers and demanding a list of assets for disposal.

 

This follows a move by the High Court to place the Newspaper on provisional liquidation after four of its employees filed a claim seeking to recover their separating dues.

Mosho bearly hours after the ruling has fired the Nchito brothers, Nchima and Mutembo who have been lawyers of the Post newspapers. The duo are close ally of Post Newspapers Proprietor Fred M’membe.

 

The Nchito brothers have been asked to submit their legal bills and have been warned that he will drag them to Law Association of Zambia ( LAZ ) if they insist on representing the Newspaper.

 

Palan and George Advocates have been hired to replace the Nchito brothers though they have since challenged the decision in court.

 

M’membe has described the whole move as political by the regime to get rid of his newspaper so that it’s leaders can loot the public resources. He says the Reporters were being used adding that they resigned on their own and at no time did they launch any claim to the Newspaper.

 

The Post is challenging the ruling and has since filed an injunction to stay the liquidation.

  2. If there was anyone that should have closed the post it should have been the late Chiluba and HH. Not Lungu. The post has dented HH’s and the late Chiluba’s image badly that even years after there attacks on him he is still fighting the tribal tag they labelled him for HH. The late Chiluba it was corruption but none of the two would ever close the post. Now Lungu whose legitimacy remains questionable thinks he has achieved economic growth by doing what he is doing to the Post. God help Zambia

  4. DO YOU EVER WONDER! The Post Newspaper toils for close to 3 decades, publishing and selling a popular newspaper – yes; the paper is in high demand even today; but ends with a K50 million kwacha tax debt which government uses to justify shutting down the business. Then, there are politicians that appeared on the Zambian political market; and in less than 3 years have saved enough money to be able to bail out the Post Newspaper’s debt. People that have done nothing in the last twenty years have more money today than people that laboured so much for this country. Have you ever wondered!

  5. Every decision has consequences So the decision to liquidate the Post will haunt those that have made the decision the rest of their lives. They may be smiling now because they think the Nation will take the role of the post but instead they will die miserable deaths.
