Hichilema’s political advisor, Ngoma, drags Tembo, Sikota, Banda, demands K5 million, apology (Video)


Levy Ngoma, the Political Advisor to President Hakainde Hichilema, has lodged complaints against Patriots for Economic Progress leader, Sean Tembo, National Democratic Congress leader, Saboi Imboela, United Liberal Party leader, Sakwiba Sikota, and Petauke Central lawmaker, Emmanuel Jay Banda.

Ngoma accused Banda of defaming him and was demanding a payment of K5 million and an apology within 72 hours.

In letters of demand for damages, retraction of defamatory statements and apology, Ngoma seeks clarification from the three political leaders regarding their allegations.

During a media briefing in Lusaka, Ngoma stated that the statements made by Imboela, Tembo, Sikota and Banda had tarnished his reputation and caused public ridicule, prompting him to take legal action.

Ngoma Said this through his Lawyers from the Chanza Sikazwe Advocates in Lusaka on Monday after reporting Tembo, Imboela, Sikota and Banda to the Police.

“We have been instructed to inform you that your statements were completely false, libelous and defamatory to our client’s reputation,” Ngoma stated.

He demanded an apology from Sikota within 72 hours and payment of K5 million as compensation for the defamatory statements.

Ngoma revealed that he had reported the individuals to the authorities to substantiate their claims with evidence.

Ngoma’s legal representatives have been tasked with managing all payments and communications related to the matter.

He warned Imboela and the others to comply with the demands within three days of receiving the letter of demand or face legal consequences in the High Court.

“We are instructed to notify you that should you fail to comply with the aforementioned demands within three days of your receipt of this letter, we are instructed to initiate legal action against you,” Ngoma concluded.
