Daily Nation Newspaper Sued By Kasolo

ZCCM-IH chief executive director Dr Pius Kasolo has sued the Daily Nation Newspapers demanding damages after the newspaper published false articles claiming that he plans to overthrow the PF presidency from President Edgar Lungu.

In a statement of claim filed in the Lusaka High Court principal registry, Dr Kasolo stated that he sued the Daily Nation after it refused to apologize publicly on terms given to it by him.

He also said that being a person of professional public standing, he had suffered harassment and unnecessary questioning on whether he was challenging the leader of the PF and that he had sabotaged his leadership.

He sued the Daily Nation over an article entitled ‘Team Pius Kasolo’ that was published on February 23, which was in direct reference and discussing him.He claims that the truthfulness of the article was not verified with him before it was published.

Dr Kasolo stated that the article false and insinuated among other things that he had political ambitions to take over as president of the PF and that there was a community of Zambians who believed that the goals and beliefs of the PF were well embodied in him.

He further said that there existed no such community and there was no factual evidence to show that he had any political ambitions to take over the leadership of the PF as alleged, a matter the Daily Nation knew or ought to have known.

Dr Kasolo further stated that the same article falsely stated that he had worked for the European Union and the Zambia Revenue Authority when in fact not.

He also stated that the publication meant and was understood in the eyes of a reasonable person of the readership of the newspaper and members of the society to mean that he was desirous and was in the process of seeking leadership of the current ruling party and the presidency in 2021.

Dr Kasolo stated further that he had suffered considerable stress, mental anguish and damage to his reputation and feelings.

Dr Kasolo is also claiming exemplary damages, interest on all sums found due, costs and any other relief that the court might deem fit appropriate to award in the circumstances.
