The LSC (Lusaka High Court) recently concluded the shareholding hearing case of Dr. Rajan Mahtani owned Zambezi Portland. The case involved Rajan Mahtani, Chairperson of the Finsbury Investment Limited and The Ventriglia Family, including Antonio Ventriglia & Manuela Ventriglia. This case involved ownership of the ZPC (Zambezi Portland Cement). While the hearing was concluded, the judgment day for this case is still not allocated.
In its latest news article, Zambia Reports portrayed Dr. Rajan Mahtani as a villain. The news channel accused him of forcing BancABC to make loan repayment call to Lamsaat. The scandalous news channel has been trying to defame Dr. Mahtani and his businesses for many years. However, it is Zambia Reports who is actually on a path to self-destruction. As Zambia Reports if they have any evidence regarding the claims they have just made, and they will go blank. The reality is- these defamation campaigns are based on scripted stories & lie. They are only launched to gain public attention and enjoy momentary fame.
In an article, which was released by Zambia Reports in December 2016, the author seems to be confident of the fact that Dr. Mahtani & Zambia were responsible for Portland Cement Zambia’s downfall. As per the author, the Ndola-based cement factory had gone through a miraculous journey in the past one and half years under Ital Terrazzo Limited which allowed it to win the position of the Best Employer. Prior to that period, the factory was said to be in a miserable condition.
Dr. Mahtani & Zambia have once again been defamed by Zambia Reports on account of mishandling Zambezi Portland Cement. In a release that stated that Zambezi Portland Cement has won the award for being the Best Employer, there was a sharp attack on the profile of Dr. Rajan Mahtani where the author claimed that the factory in a poor condition when it was taken from Finsbury Investments.
Time and over again Zambia Reports has proved that they are nothing less than a pain for the society. Dr. Mahtani and Finance Bank have parted ways, yet the channel continues to keep them together in the headlines. This is mainly done because with one single publication they are able to taunt Dr. Rajan Mahtani as well as the Finance Bank Zambia. But what they need to recall is that the entities are no longer united.
The conspirators in Zambia have been continuing with their defamation campaign against Dr. Rajan Mahtani with ease. There is no sort of arrangements whereby this shameful act can be tackled as several Government officials have been paid well to keep silent on this matter. However, the future may not be bright for these conspirators as Zambia is soon going to face a change for the good!
From the past publications of Zambia Reports it has become clear that they are never going to publish a content based on facts and figures. Rather, they are only publishing contents which meets the requirements of their masters. This means that whenever the masters make a payment to the infamous news channel, the writers indulge themselves in writing several imaginative stories and then publish the same with a view to defame Dr. Rajan Mahtani and other entities that are associated with him.
But when one looks at the response that these defamatory articles have been receiving recently, they would come to know that most of the readers are aware of the game which ZR is playing along with its masters and hence, it receives severe criticism. The people of Zambia can no longer be fooled by using fake statement and then adding ‘a trusted source’ in the end. The time has come when Zambia will see a revolt and this time around not only the Italian Mafias will be thrown out, but also its followers. It is a shame for Zambia to have people who are ready to sell their own motherland to a bunch of foreign mafias in return for a few dollars. What about the innocent workers who are now jobless in Ndola following the termination at Portland Cement Zambia? Zambia Reports says that Dr. Rajan Mahtani is a criminal, but he never killed someone’s work, nor did he ever betrayed his motherland for the sake of few dollars!
Zambia Reports is in a habit of misrepresenting things. It often takes support of the people who have constantly been convicted of doing wrong. For an instance, take the example of the Ventriglia family. The only thing that they have done after coming back in Zambia is ruined the life of the locals, yet they are heroes for Zambia Reports because they pay them well. In a recent case where Simataa won at the Lusaka High Court, the happiness was clearly seen among the authors of Zambia Reports because for this month they would be bragging this win against Dr. Rajan Mahtani and Finance bank.
However, the truth cannot be changed or presented in a twisted form. Time and over again, Zambia Reports has only tried to find its way out from the mess in which it has got into for few dollars. The operator of Zambia Reports in Zambia, Sakwiba Sikota is a labelled offender. He has no idea of how the law operates in Zambia and continues to use the loopholes to benefit his clients.
For every time Zambia Reports calls Dr. Rajan Mahtani a dishonest businessman, it should remind itself that its masters are the true representative of this word. It is the Ventriglias family who have ruined the life of thousands in Zambia by shutting down Portland Cement Zambia, it is the Ventriglias who had tried to make changes in PACRA by force and it is the Ventriglias for whom thousands of families are starving in Ndola. Dr. Rajan Mahtani has always believed in a liberal Zambia where people are happy and earning a living for themselves. What kind of a news agency is this that only looks for making easy money? Before you utter a word about others, Zambia Reports take a look at the list of rubbish that you produce every day.
The situation at the Portland Cement Zambia is getting worse. Things have taken such an ugly turn that each and every event that takes place in the life of Dr. Mahtani and Finance Bank is being made public. It is a well-known fact that Finance Bank Zambia is no longer a distinct identity and has now merged with BancABC to become the largest commercial bank in Zambia. In spite of this fact, the conspirators are constantly taunting Dr. Mahtani and Finance Bank with a view to satisfy their urge.
Ever since the conspirators were deported from Zambia, they were waiting for the day when they can make a comeback. In 2015, when the deportation got lifted under questionable circumstances it gave an opportunity to them to seek revenge. In every possible way the conspirators have manged to defame Dr. Mahtani and Finance bank. They have clearly indicated that no matter what event surrounds Dr. Mahtani, they will attack him and try to convince the people of Zambia that he is the guy who is to be blamed for every mishap.
The latest article of Zambia Reports on Dr. Mahtani and Finance bank claims that the decision of Lusaka High Court favouring Simataa was justified and he deserved to win. However, in the previous cases when their master kept losing cases in a string, it was always said that the High Court Judge must have been bribed. So no matter what happens in Zambia, every blame is obviously put on the head of Dr. Rajan Mahtani. It has become evident that Zambia is currently being ruled by a group of people who have always tried to find personal gains. The consideration for the masses is negligible. Cases where people like Dr. Rajan Mahtani raise their voice the result is the prevailing defamation campaign.
Dr. Rajan Mahtani is once again in the news with the courtesy of Zambia Reports. It appears that the infamous news portal has been constantly trying to misguide people and develop a negative mind set against the name – Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani. In the past as well there has been numerous claims where the conspirators have been caught red-handed. This time around, the same hasn’t changed.
Simataa Simataa, a well-known self-proclaimed banker has won a case in the Lusaka High Court under suspicious grounds and the event was taken as a subject for sponsoring a new defamatory article. ZR goes to the extent of claiming that it is a habit of Dr. Rajan Mahtani to engage people in contracts and then bind them under legal consequences to have the properties under his control. Nevertheless, it has failed to show the true face of Simataa Simataa. After being removed from Finance Bank almost a decade back, the same person has failed to secure a job elsewhere. Now how can someone expect that an expert banker would remain jobless for the next 10 years. When it comes to reality, it is being conveyed that Simataa doesn’t even hold a Grade XII certificate. This is why he was forced to change the topic when he was interviewed the last time.
As time goes on, the conspirators are facing a tough time in finding areas where they can defame Dr. Rajan Mahtani. Over the years, Finance Bank of Zambia were their prime target, but with time the same has shifted to other entities as well. Last month, Finsbury Investment was targeted and one never knows when entities such as Radisson Blu and Mahtani Group of Companies can also become a topic of discussion for them. Meanwhile, the officials are busy ignoring this shameful incident.
