Post Newspaper Limited Managing Director and Editor in Chief Fred M’membe has accused President Edgar Lungu his Government of being on crusade to shut down all independent media houses by their attempt to liquidate Post Newspapers Limited using their surrogates.

In a hard hitting statement, Mr M’membe said the the former employees of Post Newspapers are now being used to try and achieve the government’s goal of annihilating the company because the Post Newspaper has a strong stance to educate the masses on government corruption and abuse.

Mr M’membe said that the former employees have been used to file a petition for liquidation on the basis that they are owed money by the company.

“All the claimants resigned from Post Newspapers on their own. None of them has lodged any claims with the company. It is therefore strange that people who resigned and never demanded anything on their resignation can now be used to try and liquidate the company. Where is their claim so that the company can respond to it?”

Below is the full statement

STATEMENT ON ATTEMPTS TO LIQUIDATE THE POST ISSUED BY FRED M’MEMBE, MANAGING DIRECTOR AND EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

President Lungu and his government have continued their crusade to shut down all independent media houses by their attempt to liquidate Post Newspapers Limited using their surrogates.

This does not surprise us, although it saddens us, because of its impact on our democracy and on the thousands of people whose livelihood has been taken away by this crusade to shut down the newspaper.

The Zambia Revenue Authority was first used in this crusade. It appears that President Lungu is now attempting to use the courts in this crusade. We are hoping that he has not found willing facilitators in this very important institution.

Our concerns are borne by the fact that the courts have issued an order to liquidate the newspaper without those who are claiming money from the institution proving that they are indeed owed money. In fact, at no time have any former employees ever claimed any money from Post Newspapers nor has any court decided that Post owes employees money.

We fully sympathize with the employees who are simply being used by the same government that has occasioned them misery by taking away their means of livelihood.

The impunity being exercised by government is shocking. ZRA have gone to the extent of disregarding court orders to keep the company’s premises closed. The Tax Appeals Tribunal has ordered ZRA to open the company’s premises but they have simply ignored the Tribunal. Why is ZRA behaving in this way?

It is because they are acting on the instructions and protection of the government.

In relation to the latest developments, the government has employed a few former Post employees.

As intimated above, these former employees of Post Newspapers are now being used to try and achieve the government’s goal of annihilating the company because of its stance to educate the masses on government corruption and abuse.

The former employees have been used to file a petition for liquidation on the basis that they are owed money by the company. All the claimants resigned from Post Newspapers on their own. None of them has lodged any claims with the company. It is therefore strange that people who resigned and never demanded anything on their resignation can now be used to try and liquidate the company.

Where is their claim so that the company can respond to it?

Why are they avoiding giving the company simple demand?

This whole process is flawed. Mr Lewis Mosho, the person appointed as provisional liquidator, is being used by the government and he is unlikely to follow the law.
Mosho’s corruption, in collusion with those in government, was exposed by The Post.

The corrupt in government have now regrouped to annihilate the only means that had been available to expose their corruption. With The Post gone, Lewis Mosho, Edgar Lungu and those determined to loot government coffers, can now loot with impunity.

We remain hopeful that the Judiciary can still rise to the occasion and save this country from the state capture that has been waged by a few determined corrupt individuals. But our optimism is tempered by caution because of what we know about some of these judges and the information we continue to collect about their collusion.

At an opportune time, all will be laid bare.

For now, President Lungu and his government, through Mosho and other corrupt facilitators, are creating the conditions for corruption on a scale unseen without question. With corruption comes dictatorship and vice versa. After The Post, who will be next?

    • Very sad development indeed. The moment Edgar Chapona Lungu stepped the corridors of statehouse, Zambia kissed goodbye to her democracy no wonder Mu7 and Mugabe have been the most respected leaders in Edgars regime when they’re the most useless heads of state Africa has ever produced after Idi Amin

    • Don’t like lungu at all, but if I pay Tax and an institution somewhat wants to find a way of avoiding paying tax, you have never leg to stand on.

      Even here in Europe companies find a way of paying tax by actually paying it albeit in a way they see fit by migrating to certain tax haven areas. They do pay tax the whole lot but find a way of not paying quiet enough tax. The post pretty much don’t.

      Post have an insurmountable tax bill for years, if they ahent been able to pay then, they won’t pay ever.

      Also, they are not quite as relevant now as they would have been prior to online news sites.

      Unfortunately, they have to go under and they get my blessing. Fred I know you read this as we talked ( 2009 was it?)a few years ago and sorry I am no on your side anymore…

    • What goes round comes around! How many people did you liquidate to their early graves?
      I love freedom of the press but responsible reporting is important. It is the intricate mix of hatred and manipulation for personal gain that l disagree with and with the post the latter that was the case . little wonder very few people are sad even fewer will be happy when you succeed. The moral lesson? Never be personal when you can be professional!

    • Too bad Fred, you went to bed with the devil and you will be swallowed in the process. During the era of the late Ba MCS the PF government could do no wrong and you became a mouthpiece of MCS. On that score you deserve what is coming to you.
      You abandoned your role as the mouthpiece of the people and focused on DIGGING DEEPER FOR CONTRACTS from the Government.
      These are consequences of being a hypocrite.

    • I sympathise with you Fred MMembe but you have only yourself to blame. Remember in 2011 when everyone of us well meaning citizens said michael Sata was not presidential material, your newspaper went flat out to ensure that michael sata was elected president. and true to your objective, Sata became president. Making sata president was the beginning of the post’s problems. Now you see you have this corrupt edgar who will stop at nothing to empty zambian coffers. YOU HAVE YOURSELF TO BLAME. STOP CRYING FOUL AND TRYING TO WIN SYMPATHY. FACE THE MUSIC ALONE. As for me and my house, I will never support egdar….over my dead body! Always moving forward with UPND and HH!

    • THERE’S NOTHING PERSONAL AGAINST MMEMBE BY THE GOVERNMENT OR WHOEVER. THE POST NEWSPAPER SHOULD HAVE BEEN PAYING TAX AND THIS CAN NEVER BE OVEREMPHASISED.TAX IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ANY GOVERNMENT ON EARTH. IF COMPANIES, ETC, ARE NOT PAYING TAX- HOW DOES ANYONE EXPECT TO FIND NURSES AND DOCTORS IN HOSPITALS, ETC? I HAVEN’T EVEN BOTHERED TO SWIM INTO MMEMBE’S CROCODILE TEARS. BUT I KNOW MMEMBE HAS FILLED THE SWIMMING POOL WITH HIS SELF-SYMPATHY TEARS. LIPILENI UMUSONKO BA BWANA AND THEN WRITE ABOUT THE GOVERNMENT FAILING PROVIDE SOCIAL SERVICES TO IT’S CITIZENS. WITHOUT PAYING TAX, YOU CANNOT BE THE RIGHT INSTITUTION TO CONDEMN THE GOVERNMENT. SELA BABOMBEKO ABALI SERIOUS.

    • M’membe is behaving like a thief who after being caught stealing a goat, and is jailed starts saying why did they jail me when there are 14 million Zambians they could have picked from.

      Mr M’membe, what is difficult in understanding that you have messed yourself up by continuously messing up citizens by stealing their money through tax evasion, stealing from DBZ through loans, stealing fees from NAC, and also loans from ZISC.

      Actually wait, more more claims will come. You will be fortunate if you have enough assets. Otherwise you may find yourself behind bars.

    • Freddie, I sincerely feel your pain. Freddie, I am told you are a product of two esteemed Parents who hail from Barotseland on one hand and Bembaland on the other. Sadly, you failed to adhere to the old adage from your martenal Bembaland which says and I quote ‘ Icikulya icupempula’ or whatever! You worked so hard to bring the PF into power in 2011 but the same PF is closing your Company today! What an unfair world or is it a question of patronisation instead of professionalism. Next time I hope you will do things differently.

    • No sympathy to Mmembe at all. His support for PF and Satan in 2011 was illogical. Anybody with half a brain could have foreseen the despotic and intolerance tendencies of PF. It’s not only Lungu but the whole of PF, a violent bunch of people. Why did Mmembe hope that things could be better under PF? Even his aunt, the treacherous Inonge Wina, cannot help him. Bye bye to The PFost. You were good when you had brains to fight corruption in MMD but lost it when you ignored the tyrrany of Sata and PF. Good riddance. You have been swallowed by your own lilombamema.

  7. He voluntarily helped M C Satan to become the Zambian president when infact knew the man is incapable of ruling that’s why I always say cursed is the day the pangarian family (PF) was formed and day Edgar chakolwa Kaloba Wrungu was born and became the president.

  8. Before this, it was Chiluba this, Chiluba that, then it was Levy this, Levy tha, then it was Rupiah this and Rupiah that and then came his champion. He vuvuzelad Sata and even refused to ‘dig shallow’ to tell the country that Sata was ill. Up to the last minute, the paper that ‘digs deeper’ kept burying the news while it was working in dark corners to set up another surrogate President. All the scheming failed and now we are back to Lungu this, Lungu that. What legitimacy has the Post to talk against corruption when it was protected by corrupt politicians and is now hiding behind its own hand picked judges not to pay its dues?

    These employees no doubt executed their duties and now they need their benefits or was that not part of the contract/payroll agreement with regards to deductions at the end of each month?

  11. “the Post Newspaper has a strong stance to educate the masses on government corruption and abuse” LIE, BOZA, UBUFI, The Post miseducated the masses about PF. The post went into a corrupt relationship with Sata and helped him win elections. The post was part of any abuse of the masses by PF

  12. With all his shortcomings, i still hold M’membe in very high esteem. We are all human beings so is Fred,we are all bound to make mistakes and Fred has never claimed to be perfect, he has on many occasions admitted his flaws without justifying any of them.He has certainly contributed positively to the well being of mother Zambia a million times more than what most of you critics will ever dream of contributing even in your wildest dreams.
    Don’t expect perfection from your fellow imperfect human being,he is not a god but just a human.
    Being a genius he is,is not a crime.
    None of you will ever achieve what M’membe has achieved in his miserable life.
    No honest man will ever attempt to crucify a sincere person like Fred just for one mistake.
    What of all the good things he has been…

  13. I don’t agree with most of the comments – the whole post saga is masterminded by Lungu to completely annihilate the free press – by the way, how about all the institutions including ZNBC, Zambia Railways Daily Nation etc, etc who owe ZRA money – are they exempt from paying taxes? Anyway, for me, I have never & will never defend despots like Lungu – that’s the more reason, this nation is heading nowhere with Edward at the helm no matter what u can say or think- that’s why I have a strong feeling that Zambia will end up the Zimbabwe way with all these revelations about the true state of the economy from the mouth of Mutati & off course of recent the IMF-& talking about the IMF & other donors, I doubt if they will fund this govt. In the current form-& those who think IM and donors can…

    • Most people know that Lungu has fixed Mmembe and his PFost using ZRA. That’s not in contention. What people are saying is that this is only possible because PF is in power and that Mmembe supported PF in 2011. Lungu is doing what he is doing for his own survival. But if Sata had not become President in 2011, and Sata in his dying days had not left Lungu as Acting President, Lungu would not have become President who subsequently shut down the PFost. Lungu will be Lungu but Mmembe made a huge mistake with Sata and PF in 2011.

You were all buying the Post religiously and believing everything he was reporting. Only few people had the guts to disagree with Membe and staunch Membe followers would castgate them for opposing the mighty Mmembe.

      But infact time has provided itself, you know there is always the rise and fall and its not even because of Lungu. Lungu just happens to be there at the right time that’s all. During SAta’s time Membe was at his peak and untoucgable, now he must fall chapwa

  24. Fred, this is what we call a reality check. You became so big headed and thought you could manipulate everything in Zambia including who should be president! Life is not like that. To begin with, tax evasion is a crime and all tax evaders must be jailed. You contribute to hunger when you evade tax, you deprive the country of the much needed resources for development. Simply put, you are a thief. Last time I checked, all thieves belong to jail!!!

  37. Some of you people I don’t understand you. You write as if you do not live here in Zambai.Mmembe has made it very clear that he can never support a corrupt regime. Is Lungu’s regime clean? You know the answer because the President himself was castigating some of his ministers for being corrupt the other day.Mmembe supported the PF under the late Sata but does not support the PF under Lungu for reasons that you know very well.Sata and Lungu are two different people.

    • When Sata was alive people said his government was the most corrupt but now he’s in the grave, all his evils are buried with him while an angelic portrait has been created for him here on earth.

  38. All people talking bad things about Mmembe are just jealous of what this patriot has achieved in his life. Life is a very good teacher. To day its Mmembe tomorrow it will be you. That is when you will understand how rotten the system at play is. God Bless Zambia.

  39. Imwe Sata was very popular even without the Post newspapers would’ve own the 2011 elections. Mmembe was a chancer, if He is a king maker why did he fail to make HE president…

  40. Fred MMembe HH and GBM are not clever individuals. ECL is the same as he used to but he is insulated by the office of the President. Just like you Fred you have been insulated by the Incorporation of the POST except that the rules governing Incorporation and rules governing Presidency are different. To fight Lungu in equivalent to fighting the Zambian people. The best you can do is to fight very hard so that in 2021 you remove him. Then mukamulye umubishi ba kabwa. Simple advice.,

  41. I would rather vote for a person who confesses that he is vision less but doing right thing than vote for a person who wants to ride on the Post news paper so that they stop taxes. That is more vision less in action than the twisted pronouncements.

  43. The one million dollar question is who shall be next? The simple answer is ” anyone who shall not oblige by the Taxman’s conditions”. Imagine all of us decided NOT to pay the due Tax, what would become of this country? Always look at a bigger picture.

  46. Fred, be sincere to yourself and we’ll meaning Zambians by accepting that you’ve a big problem, the.ego in you. You think you’re the only intelligent personality in Zambia, FALSE. Instead there are many zambians educated even above you. You’ve a bitter unforgiving heart and are selfish. Have you ever thought of what you’ve been doing to the citizens of this country who go for medicals at hpspitalsvwhere you would step your feet? No, if your stealing from govt in unpaid taxes would affect UTH and other health facilities operations, something you don’t bother about, you would ‘ve obliged to pay ZRA knowing fully we’ll where these monies are used. You problem is, you think paying taxes would only fatten the pockets of corrupt ministers, and therefore why pay. It doesn’t matter who…

  48. Give Ceaser wat belongs him& Jehovah God wat is due for Him. Plz, its not about Data MHSRIP, Edgar or PF BT Mmembez tax evasion activities. Wen will yo heads begin working properly? Only uncivilised cadre can fail to understand this plain& simple issue. Mmembe was suppose to v paid all the tax due& life continues! Ukupesha Lunshi, kunya patatu! Mmembe shd v paid all da tax to shame any acts motivated by cheap politics!

  50. I disagree with all those assertions that Mmembe got what he deserved. How can laws be applied selectively and be considered right? He is a victim of political thuggery and abuse of power. Sadly many Zambia only try to see the surface of an issue. Press supporting preferred candidates is not an offence under Zambian law. The here is whether the country gains out of shutting down an important means for leverage by those discontented with government. Will they get back the millions owed by shutting the post? The answer’s no. Why kill the goose then? This issue will haunt ICL forever. It’ll be a terrible precedent for our country.
