Patriotic Front presidential candidate Edgar Lungu’s Head of Publicity campaign Emmanuel Mwamba says The Post Newspaper will close on its own because of debt.

The Post Newspaper, a privately owned daily this week reported that former president Rupiah Banda and Lungu had cut a deal which among other issues was for the PF to close down the Newspaper when they win the January 20 Presidential election.

Speaking when he featured on a special programme on Hot FM, Friday, January 9, 2015, Mwamba said there was no need for anyone to push for the closure of the Newspaper. He said The Post Newspaper will close down due to its huge debts it owes in terms taxes.

“No one needs to close The Post, it is just a matter of Zambia Revenue Authority moving in and collect the taxes, the money that belongs to the people of Zambia then it will close on its own,” Mwamba said when asked to confirm the story carried by The Post Newspaper.

Mwamba also dismissed The Post Newspaper revelations that Rupiah Banda had agreed to back Lungu in this election on condition that he (Lungu) drops all his court cases after winning the polls. He said Lungu will swear to uphold the constitution hence his allegiance will be to the constitution.

He said the office of the Director of Public Prosecution was well catered for under the constitution and wondered why they were allegations that Lungu will remove Mutembo Nchito, a friend to Post Newspaper Owner Fred M’membe.

The Post Newspaper reported that Nchito will be removed from that office of DPP to facilitate the freeing of former president Banda from all the court cases he is facing.

  2. As head of publicity campigns, Emmanuel Bwamba should have talked mnore about his candidate EL- his vision (or is it the borrowed vision he has, what he will do with the so many wrong things the PF have introduced, how he will deal with his alcoholism while in state house etc). No information at all, nothing to talk about. These guys will be worse than the first three years if they win. Expect worse things to happen under Lungu. But thanks to God, they won’t go through.

  3. Ba PF sure! How can you have Emmanuel Mwamba a Diploma holder and Brian Hapunda who was expelled from UNZA for exam malpractices to be media personnel of the ruling party. PF is not short of brains to have those two as the face of the party. Finshi Hapunda engeba abantu baumfwa? He is a proven freud star. Ba Mwamba was fired by late Sata for being over zealous. Nama elections yene ni loose becuase having wrong chaps in front.Ba RB for sure! why are you putting ifisoso kuntanshi? Nafwebamisapota twalaleka. I am very upset. Is it that the birds of the same feather flock together? Those are questions reasonable voters are asking. Its never too late to correct things please!

  9. @Mkandansenga, Talk About The Post Mr. Time Killed Chiluba. The Post Should Just Pay Tax Period. Why Bring Up All Kinds Of Stories? Its Only Tax Zambia Wants From The Post Not To Close It. If Post Is Wise, They Should Start Paying Some Debts Now. Ulubilo Lwamwipi Kubangila. The Post, Dont Be Stubborn For Nothing. Edger Lungu Is Coming To State House. Lwenu.

  10. Chiluba killed himself. Let us not point fingers at any one. He used too much sexual enhancement drugs when he was going out with someone’s wife in the name of Regina Mwanza. This had an effect on his heart in the long run. Chiluba died of heart disease. He paid for stealing from the Zambian people and for stealing a wife from Mr. Mwanza. Viagra has serious effects on the user’s heart. So please do not accuse any one of having killed Chiluba. However, Chiluba, Xaviour Chungu and all thieves in Chiluba’s regime kiiled Mwanawasa and installed RB as president. That is how up to now the London Judgement cannot be registered in Zambia.
