THE MOST TALKED ABOUT SHOT OF THE WEEKEND
Monday, 24 January, 2011-LUSAKA
SHOT OF THE WEEKEND
One of the interesting stories that came from the weekend include an anonymous picture of Works and Supply Deputy Minister Lameck Mangani who was captured having a drink with former Lands Minister Judith kapijimpanga. The picture was published in the Sunday Mail and Sunday Times of Zambia newspapers. One of the captions was interesting though, saying "the agenda of the meeting was not known".
Mrs Kapijimpanga is also former chairperson for lands in the ruling MMD. She defected to the opposition Patriotic Front recently alleging corruption in the MMD.
Mr Mangani and Mrs Kapijimpanga were captured at Mika Hotel in Kabulonga where the two had a meeting for over three hours. Mr Mangani earlier told the ZNBC that Mrs Kapijimpanga was her sister and that was a family meeting.
However the MMD provincial chairperson for Eastern, Western and Lusaka have condemned Mr Mangani saying the meeting had no blessing of the Head of State.
They say it was not in order for Mr Mangani to meet a member of the opposition. Mr Mangani has also been accused of meeting PF members during the MMD eastern province conference recently.
I though it would be great to share some of the news and images from the weekend.
