Most of the times, the major victims are the common people who are at the mercy of the governments and law and order. The people of Zambia are also facing similar situations.

At one hand, they are well aware of the positive contributions made by Dr. Rajan Mahtani and his associations have made towards the economy and social upliftment of Zambia. On the other hand, there are frequent news and defamation campaigns accusing him of fraud and other activities. These campaigns have certainly disrupted the normal day-to-day activities of the general people of Zambia.
The recent case launched against Simaata by Finance Bank Zambia had the entire country in surprise. While majority of the people were happy to see Finance Bank taking action against its conspirators, there were also a few bunch of supporters of Simaata who condemned the actions. These are probably the same individuals and entities who want to see Dr. Rajan Mahtani’s businesses and reputation collapse and has been responsible for spreading negative stories and false rumors about Dr. Mahtani as well as his associations.

Individuals who evade law and involve in unlawful practices for personal gains cannot escape judgment for long. Sooner or later, law catches up to them. It is the same case with Simaata Simaata, the former employee of Finance Bank Zambia and an open critic. Not only did Simaata broke law by involving in various unlawful practices during his stint at the Finance Bank Zambia, but he also led to reputational damage for the bank as well as Dr. Rajan Mahtani, the founder of the bank. It is no doubt that the judgement of Supreme Court that announced Simaata as guilty, was a welcome move and was appreciated by the industrialists as well as the common people alike.
It is that time of the decade when the conspirators of Dr. Rajan Mahtani & Finance Bank are realizing their mistakes of constantly agonizing him and his associations.

Finance Bank and Dr. Rajan Mahtani took the breadth of relief after a long time, as the misconducts from Simaata had increased to an unprecedented level.
