Norton legislator Temba Mliswa (independent) has sued the Zimbabwe Newspapers Limited, the publishers of The Herald and The Sunday Mail, among others, for $2 million for defamation.
Through his lawyers Kadzere Hungwe and Mandevere, Mliswa said Zimbabwe Newspapers published two articles on February 4, 2019 in The Herald and Chronicle, and another on February 13, 2019 titled MPs demand $400 000 bribe and ‘Dishonourable’ Mliswa on a bull rampage. Mliswa’s lawyer said they are preparing summons and should be able to file them at the High Court yesterday since Zimpapers ignored the legislator’s letter of demand.
In the letter of demand, Mliswa said the published articles went far beyond the recesses of public interest, privilege or fair comment and the publishers refused to retract or to offer an apology.
