Oracle Media Productions Ltd, the firm claiming to be behind the publication of the Mast Newspaper has denied suggestions that the paper is an illegal publication.
Oracle Media Productions Ltd Managing Director Mutinta Mazoka M’membe said in a statement that the current discussion of The Mast in the government media is wrong and has no basis in law.
It has been suggested that The Mast is an illegal publication for allegedly not being registered with the Zambia Revenue Authority.
“Our company has tendered all the documents required for Tax Registration and is therefore compliant with Tax laws,” Mrs Mazoka M’membe said.
She said it is therefore wrong to suggest that The Mast is being published illegally.
“On the question of copyright, we have established that there are no registered trademarks or other similar rights that The Mast is infringing. That said, we will continue to publish the newspaper in keeping with the laws of the land as established,” she said.
