Diallo sues author Msemakweli for damages By DAILY NEWS THE Kisutu Resident Magistrate's Court in Dar es Salaam today ordered activist Kainerugaba Msemakweli to remove from circulation for sale or any purpose all booklets titled "orodha ya mafisadi wa elimu implicating several personalities, including former cabinet minister Antony Diallo. Resident Magistrate Aniseta Wambura granted an interim order, restraining further Msemakweli, his agents, servants or workmen working under him from further publishing and printing the booklets, first edition, containing a list of shoddy degree and diploma holders. She ordered that the order would remain in force pending determination of main suit lodged by Dr Diallo, currently Member of Parliament (MP) for Ilemela Constituency (CCM) in Mwanza Region through his advocate Mafuru Mafuru. The suit has been scheduled for mention on June 23. In the suit, the MP is demanding, among others, payments of 200m/- as damages for publishing the booklets in question. He is also seeking orders requiring Msemakweli to publish a retraction of the malicious publications and unconditional apology on the front page of any newspaper. Dr Diallo stated in the suit that he is a businessman and politician, who served the government in different capacities for 12 years in the third and fourth phase governments, as deputy minister and full minister in four different ministries. The ministries include Ministry of Industry and Trade and Ministry of Water Resources and Livestock Development. He was deputy minister in the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism and Livestock Development as full minister. As a businessman, he claimed, he was a qualified person in service of marketing, business administration and management specialist with 20 years of experience of management in the field of manufacturing. Academically, Dr Diallo stated that he held several qualifications, which included Certificate in Business Administration (Newcastle 2001), Diploma in Technology Management (Netherlands -- 1992), Advanced Management Programme (Harvard Business School USA-1994) and Master of Business Administration (Newcastle University 2004-2005). He also holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Business (Phoenix University), Master of International Management (Phoenix University 2006-2007), Doctor of Business Administration (University of Newcastle 2005-2008) and Master of Aviation Management at the same university in 2009. According to him, in September last year, at his own instance and sheer move and without truth and justification, Msemakweli published the booklet for sale, covering different personalities, containing defamatory statements at its pages 34 to 39, showing Dialo held fake certificates. The published statement, he stated, clearly indicated a premeditated and well orchestrated campaign aimed at portraying directly an innuendo and position that he was a fraudster, forger, dishonest businessman and politician, guilty of dishonourable conduct and not fit to hold any post. Due to such defamation, he stated, he has been seriously lowered in the estimation of right thinking members of the society, impeached to the injury of his business and political career, subjected to mental anguish, public odium, contempt, ridicule and social embarrassments. Furthermore, Dr Diallo stated that the publication was calculated to bring into hatred and excite dissatisfaction to his voters and shun away from him for the general elections scheduled for October, this year. From such gross libel, he stated, he was entitled to the damages. Mh hiyo DBA yake sasa: Newcastle wanayo hiyo ya 5 years. Sasa sijui kweli alifanya Newacastle University au nyingine?
