Jean Kapata to sue over the Mukula Cartel Report

Headlines Jean Kapata to sue over the Mukula Cartel Report

Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Hon Jean Kapata has expressed disappointment that a Zambian newspaper can go all the way defaming the President and his Ministers to please their local and foreign sponsors.

She said at a press briefing, yesterday, that News Diggers is supposed to be a professional publication whose core virtue must be to seek the truth which is a value for all professional journalists.

Hon Kapata said in reporting fabrications, journalists from News Diggers threw their ethics out of the window to please their sponsors.

“I am deeply upset by the contents of a so-called report that has been maliciously circulated by an organization calling itself the Environmental Investigation Agency (EIA). I am even more appalled that a Zambian newspaper can go all the way in defaming the President and his ministers without verification. I presume News Diggers is supposed to be a professional publication whose core virtue must be to seek the truth which is a value for all professional journalists, ” she said

“I do not want to believe these journalists do not know their ethics. I believe they threw their ethics out of the window to please their sponsors. This is very sad,” She said.

“We hear, daily, submissions from the media asking for press freedom. I am personally an advocate for press freedom but I do not support press freedom based on hurting innocent Zambians.”

She stated that the government will not be detracted by enemies of the State, local and international, as they pursue its development agenda.

“Government is under siege from its enemies, local and foreign. You are going to see more of this gutter journalism. You are going to see malicious videos like the one you have seen today but all this is fake,” she added.

“Government will not be detracted by enemies of the state, local and international, as we pursue our development agenda. Let me conclude by saying, I am going to sue News Diggers and  the so-called investigative agency.”

    • Jean Kapata you’re a Bandit and you belong to a Bandit Party….the report is genuine and it haa been confirmed by EIA….you need to resign immediately and face the law together with bandit President Edgar Lungu

    • After the 2021 elections with the new govt. Some of the issues to be addressed ASAP are
      1. Declarations of assets by everyone who was attached to pf including cadres.
      2. Justification of the salaries or their business against the property they won.
      3.Tax returns since pr cam to power.
      4.Repayment of Money by Ministers who continued to earn salaries after the dissolution of parliament at present interest from 2016.
      5. Repossessing all property bought from the proceeds of corruption.
      6.Retirement of all cadres from the Defence and Security forces, not forgetting the pf compromised Judges.
      7.Reappointment of Judges to the Constitutional Court.
      8. Dismissing Officers in the Army and Airforce who never appeared before the Officers Recruitment board.
      7.Reopening the Cases of Zambians…

    • 6.Retirement of all cadres from the Defence and Security forces, not forgetting the pf compromised Judges.
      7.Reappointment of Judges to the Constitutional Court.
      8. Dismissing Officers in the Army and Airforce who never appeared before the Officers Recruitment board.
      7.Reopening the Cases of Zambians killed by the brutal pf cadres and police
      If you think, this is a joke, watch space!

    • Oh, I forgot about banning foreigners from owning land as individuals but through companies which they can register. All land that was given to Chinese, Indian and Lebanese mafia will be repossessed and given to the youths.
      Demolition of houses built in Forest 26 and 27.
      I am also thinking of the vast land in Chingwe given to Chinese people as a Cemetry. They don’t need to bury their dead here. We have plenty of firewood.

  1. I think it is just a threat. How many I will sue threats we heard. Anyway, see you in court when PF exits power or when Lungu fires you down the line or even better, when you join the opposition.

  2. Note the key words, “Zambia is under siege…” It seems the gold discoveries and national assets are being eyed by Western interests. ZESCO, a company whose potential is massive should tariffs be cost reflective; unlike MMD who cheaply gave away our mines with oppressive contracts, PF will not give away the gold and new mineral rights with bad conditions. With the formation of IDC to safeguard our assets, PF has been labelled as a non friendly party and the west needs its proxy govt. in power to get to these assets before China gets to them. Sue the b.a.s.tards!!

    • “….It seems the gold discoveries and national assets are being eyed by Western interests. ZESCO, a company whose potential is massive should tariffs be cost reflective;…”

      Hehehehe……counting chickens even before the hen even lays eggs….

      That gold is not a guarantee badala and there is as much gold as a by product of copper yet you are still broke…….

      and ZESCO owes so much, PF are duping you about valuable company. A company that has had monopoly for 50 years yet is broke ??? Even if tariffs are cost effective , rain has been free for 50 years yet ZESCO is on the brink.

    • Of course, according to you muzungu ass wipers. Everything is so bad, upnd should come and finish off what MMD started, right?? Only the westernerd can run this economy?? Then what do you know about the gold discoveries?? GRZ knows what’s on the ground, i would listen to them any day than you speculators who rely on social media!!

    • Citizen…..

      Zambia has produced tones of gold as a by product of copper extraction……still broke.

      The mines minister came up the UK to plead for investors to come on board and look at the gold deposits, still no takers.

      I would not count on that gold to get you out of the PF mess……

  3. Great, let start by disclosure of your tax return for past seven years and no re-payment of emoluments as ordered by CC.
    By the way, a person seeking justice must come with “clean hands” to the Court.
    Hon. Kapata, have you ordered truck-load of Boom?

  4. Maaaa tired with lies mwand u pipo ae just bad wish had gone for UPND at least chances of PF winning would lessen am a fool,but trust me God watches in every corners of the earth and leading innocent people to suffer isn’t really what God desires you will be terminally destroyed lungu your days are over.wash your bags outdoors awaits

    Voice of angry youth

  5. Really sad that such a woman with rubbish brains and character can be a Minister. Yet there are so many smart and capable Zambian women out there.

    • Blago
      Imagine,a stupid nurse,but Sata had no class these were his desciples with Chitotela a police constable,Kampyongo a Katondo Street thug,Willie Nsanda,a KMB thug, Sikazwe a mechanic,Kaiser Zulu a Lab Clerk, and when he chose the educated he went for the mediocre like Nkandu Luo,Chikwanda,Kabimba name them no substance.
      As for nurse Kapata i seriously hope she carries out her threat and sues,am sure the case will be disposed of after 2021,so that she is sorted out nicely and then prosecuted and jailed

  6. Who is she suing anyway the publishers of the report in USA or the newspapers that have republished the report in their papers?. Or maybe the usual PF scapegoat HH?

  7. “Government is under siege from its enemies, local and foreign. You are going to see more of this gutter journalism…..”

    They know how they have been stealing.

    Fasten your seat belts for more revelations…

  8. Is president’s name just used in this or he is just petty thief? I watched the video, it is very embarrassing indeed. Kapata the diggers news is a wrong target. The news source has a name and physical address.

  9. Sue who ? The messenger? Why are you scared to go after the independent organisation that investigated this and found you with cases to answer? You want to shoot the messenger ? Grow up ! Diggers were not with you when you were busy plundering resources. My sister I would advise you to have an exit strategy in 2021 because the prisons will be your new home

  10. What’s honourable about a thief and what defense does she have for her to start threatening legal processes? Once a thief you will always be one! Stop pointing fingers at the wrong people and just remember that it’s very easy to get the right information/evidence in this progressive world. You can try taxing social media but it will never silence people of Zambia. There are more ways to share information than Watsupp etc

    • She won’t dare ………..usually the most incriminating evidence is not revealed but awaits for lawsuits as is in this case.

      There is worse evidence to be revealed if messers kapata , lungu make noise.

  11. JEAN MUKULA KAPATA, SPENDING SLEEPLESS NIGHTS CAUSE ITS BEEN EXPOSED!!
    Imwe’ ba Mama Mukula, please start refurbishing Prisons now, coz you need a comfortable sitting room after you & your Boss Scatter teeth Mukula are kicked out of office.
    MWAYA SAANA, INCLUDING YOUR FUGITIVE BROTHER [email protected]!ZER, WHO’S PROBABLY HIDING UNDER YOUR MUKULA MADE BED!!

  12. “Government is under siege from its enemies, local and foreign…”
    Ironically the only “enemies” of the government are the very people running it. The current PF government is the biggest threat our beloved country has ever witnessed. Tearing itself down from the inside and pointing fingers as the cookie finally begins to crumble. The amount of greed our so called leaders blatantly show out is almost admirable, bold, cocky even. Levels of corruption, and injustice unprecedented. All the while, millions of people continue to live in squalor. I firmly hope you all get what’s coming to you.

  13. Ah, it’s the Forest 27 bandit aka mama Mukula? Remember your former Lands minister who got jailed! You are next!

  14. Hello there,
    Are you in need of any type of loan to help meet your financial obligation?
    If yes, then let’s introduce you to Altara Loans firm. We give out loans to both government and nongovernmental employees alongside businesses and farmers at just 8% interest rate.
    Does that sounds too good to be true? Then why not try us out? You can reach us via email at [email protected] or WhatsApp +3197005030217. Trust me when I say that you’ll be glad you did.

  15. So, Jean Kapata, tell me which minister, present or before, who’s ever come out said, “Mwandi, it’s true what’s being written about me and my colleagues in government”? Don’t they ALWAYS deny it even if the truth and facts are bitch slapping them in the face? Did the Zambian people expect a different reaction from you? No. Did you think, in their fame as a peaceful people, they are ignorant and backward, unable to discern what’s happening? If you, Jean, supposed any of that, you need help. And so do some of your colleagues who corruptly carry out their national duties. Time and circumstances catch up with you at some point.

  16. They were merely repeating what is there in the open and even quoted the source. You cannot sue them except for the originators of the story.

  17. Kikiki!!!! Truth is relative mama. To your opponents thats the truth and to you its insults thats what the world is all about. Truth pains. Sometimes its important to just let things slide by kwasila. The guilty will always be afraid. Why so much rush!!!
    Disaster!!!
