COMMERCE deputy Minister Miles Sampa has said he is not impressed with some online media outlets that publish slanderous articles and he will take legal action against some of them.
Mr Sampa was speaking In Kasama where he visited Patriotic Front (PF) leadership in Northern Province with his Community Development counterpart Jean Kapata.
Mr Sampa was speaking in reference to an online news article that alleged he had tarvelled to Kasama with cash meant for unknown purposes.
He stood and asked members of the Press whether he had any cash strapped to his body or not.
He then told Ms Kapata to stand up and opened her handbag to dispel rumours that he had travelled to Kasama for nefarious purposes.
“I don’t care whether they are hiding in London or wherever they are. I recently won damages in the United States and I have no qualms about pursuing people that spread falsehoods,” he said.
Mr Sampa and Ms Kapata who are members of PF central committee were in Kasama to brainstorm with local PF leadership on ways to make grassroots organs of the party self-sustainable and address issues in indiscipline among members.
