Breaking News: Culprits EXPOSED As MAHTANI Counterclaims $100M From FLAME Promotions For DEFAMATION

Raja Mathani (L) with Lawyer John Sangwa

Dr. Rajan Mahtani has instructed his attorney Mr. John Sangwa of Simeza Sangwa and Associates to counterclaim $100 million (one hundred million US dollars) for defamation from Flame Promotions and Procurement Limited over allegations made by it as purported in a statement of claim filed by the Lusaka High Court by Mr. Sakwiba Sikota S.C., of Central Chambers.
By the time of our enquiry neither Finance Bank Zambia Limited nor Dr. Mahtani were served with the writ. Upon receiving service of the writ, published by the article in the Post of Tuesday November 8, Mr Sangwa has been issued with the instructions to sue Flame.
Dr. Mahtani has denied all the allegations and has construed it as part of the ‘orchestrated agenda’ of the culprits who have failed to honour their debts to the Bank and is the flimsy reaction of the demands by the Bank for immediate settlement.
A debenture, promissory note, personal guarantee, paid cheques and instructions to the Bank reveal that Dr. Mahtani was neither a signatory of the account nor made any payments to himself. Flame Promotions and Procurement Limited are contractors to Hotellier Limited and one of the funders, the PTA Bank, resolved that their payments would only be made to contractors. In order not to delay the project Finance Bank granted a bridging loan to Flame Promotions and Procurement Limited under full jurisdiction of themselves and the reimbursement documents were executed by Hotellier Limited to the PTA Bank.
It would appear that the tactic of issuing ‘writs’ is mischievous and ‘sharp practice’, a speciality of Mr. Sakwiba Sikota S.C. of Central Chambers, who is also unethically a Director of Hotellier Limited, to delay settlement of rightful dues. It is also alleged that Mr. Sakwiba Sikota S.C., was unethically involved with the DEC., ACC., BOZ., as an agent appointed by Rupiah Banda (the former President) in his persecution of Dr. Mahtani.
This tactic is proven by writs issued against Zaheeda Essa, former legal counsel of the Mahtani Group of Companies (2010/HP/966) and Central Chambers letter of 6th September, 2010, on allegations by Flame Promotions and Procurement Limited. In addition, Flame Promotions made allegations to the DEC against Ms. Essa on the same allegations of fraud, negligence, etc., and had her harassed, imprisoned, tortured, and her home and office searched by the DEC on a number of occasions until she agreed to illegally become a State’s witness with immunity organized by Mr. Sakwiba Sikota S.C. All the allegations and cases against Ms Essa were then ‘dropped’ by the State under a nolle poseque.
Ms. Zaheeda Essa, under pressure from Mr. Sakwiba Sikota S.C. sued the ‘Post’ for defamation and subsequently ‘discontinued’ the case after obtaining mileage from publication of the ‘writ’ to damage public perception of the ‘Post’ and other parties.
Our sources reveal that the vindictiveness, ‘orchestrated agenda’ and ‘venom’ is now ‘boiling’ with the truth being revealed and justice being pronounced by the PF Government.
Our sources further reveal that Mr. Mohammed Salama of Flame Promotions is involved with James Banda (the brother) and James Banda, (the son) of the former President (Mr. Rupiah Banda) in illegal ventures being investigated, some of which are:
• Construction of houses on plot RE/A/29/488A, Leopards Hill Road, Kabulonga
• Acquisition of Baobab land previously held by Legacy Holdings
• Construction of house for Mr. Rupiah Banda and family
• Contract awarded for Chinsali Training school where Flame’s bid was higher than the next bidder by K50 billion
• Vat and tax evasion and money laundering on projects undertaken by Flame
• Illegal obtaining of employment permits for Flame’s expatriate workers
• Corruption on renovation of homes for Hon. Dora Siliya M.P., Hon. Felix Mutati M.P., James Banda, and numerous other politicians.
Will the history of Mohammed Salama prove his life from ‘Rags’ to ‘Riches’ through corruption and political manipulation?

    What a country let’s pose for a moment,I think we are taken for a ride which is which?Sikota if its what is being reported then this Elderly man needs to be helped yes he is educated but, he might be missing God’s wisdom. Mr President show leadership don’t let these serious issues treated with kids gloves before u become unpopular strengthen your investigative wings so that,can we know the truth if possible do like Levy s way visit Parliament and let RB’s immunity striped.

    Aaaaah na Mutati!? That why he was nga hyna in two paths!
    So ba MMD what are you going to enherit? More thieves it looks.

    There is too much drama in Zed, I guess it is the case every time govt has changed. When Mwanawasa and FTJ assumed power it was the same nonsense of revelations and yet nothing really constructive came out of it. Now it is the pf and these are talks of the day and I wonder when they are going to work when they are pushing for such cases in the previous administration. I hope they will not be caught in the same web. RB tried to stay away from such issues hoping he won’t end up like FTJ, but even that has not spared him. The drama continues with Mahtani now that he has his FBL and his health is suddenly over!

    When are the Bandas going to be caged kanshi? We are tired of their greediness!

  11. Real   November 9, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    Birds of the same feathers flock together. RB and Chiluba are the same.
    Sikota is very useless. Look at the following thieves he is protecting:
    (i) Dora sility
    (ii) Buzianu the Gold scandler
    (iii)James Banda
    (iv) Flames Promotios and Procurement Limited to mention but afew.
    Chi Sakwiba Sikota, you are really a fool to protect and perpetrate corruption.

    @Framuka -leave saki alone , he is just doing his job running his company

  16. Cenda Bwamba   November 9, 2011 at 7:03 pm

    @ Angel – the law takes its course, this is not a dictotorship, you should hope the cases are dealt with expediciously.

    In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord I have cursed Sakwiba Sikota, RB family and Dora Siliya. Lord Jesus let these people know that Zambians are yours you created them with your full desire and everlasting love. you did not create us to be manipulated by these people, Oh lord let them recieve appriopriate punishment from your Mighty arm Lord.

    What a complicated web of deceit and political manupilation by alabi and utwana twamwili as Mpombo used to put it.

  23. Nacimbusa   November 10, 2011 at 9:50 am

    Yaba! I wish the late Mwanawasa was here to see what mess he has put us in[calling Alabi from Chipata]. Uyu mudala ni Pompwe pamo nabana bakwe. Guys, do you know ati baleshitisha ama second hand shoes ku Longolongo and they never used to pay Tax? Ba Mutati I am disappointed I thought imwe eyefilyako atase bane bonse muii ba Lazo kanshi.
