Malawi’s Hotelgate: Ibam’s Mlombwa spits venom on social media fanatic Gerald Kampanikiza

By Tawonga Sesani

BLANTYRE-(MaraviPost)-Indigenous business players have given social media fanatic Gerald Kampanikiza (an opinion-leader) 48 hours to clear himself in a defamation scandal or risk being sued.

Indigenous business operates are accusing the human right campaigners of fabricating and spreading lies.

A media statement in custody of Maravi Post from the Indigenous Businesspersons Association of Malawi (IBAM) accuses Kampanikiza of creating and spreading false.

Social media has of late been awash with reports that Mike Mlombwa, president of the association is discouraging patronage to Crossroads Hotel in Lilongwe.

Apparently Crossroads has been entangled in a dubious business with State House, reports both entities have denied involvement.

However, in the media statement, Ibam has advised Kampanikiza to withdraw “the fake news originated and spread by Mr. Gerald Chavez Kampanikiza”.

According to the media release “IBAM therefore gives Mr. Kampanikiza 48 hours to either bring forward evidence or to apologize”.

In the statement Ibam says it’s president – Mlombwa has no intention to interfere in any operation between government and other stakeholders.

Reacting to the development Kampanikiza said he is not ready to apologize as he was just forwarding what was circulating on social media.

“I wonder how this grouping is targeting me, let me make it clear that am not shaken and looking forward to their next course of action”, he said.

Kampanikiza further advised the grouping to not be too emotional on social media issues rather they should concentrate on supporting each other.

“They should concentrate on supporting each other in business which they are literary failing and not try to draw lines with me,”Gerald said.
