List of shame: No suit yet

By Guardian Reporter

Until yesterday (7.10.07), none of the people who had threatened to sue Chadema legislator Dr Wilbroad Slaa for naming them in the list of shame had lodged a court case, The Guardian can reveal.

On Tuesday September 26, 2007, Minister for Energy and Minerals Nazir Karamagi went public and announced that he would file a case against the Chadema legislator and other opposition leaders for allegedly tainting his reputation.

A day later, Treasury chief Gray Mgonja also announced that he would sue the Karatu legislator and the weekly Kiswahili tabloid Mwanahalisi, and its publishers, Printech, for acting as vehicle for conveying defamatory stories.

The Permanent Secretary, whom Slaa had named alongside nine other government officials as most corrupt, said he would demand that the legislator substantiate the allegations in court.

Shortly thereafter, the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Water, Patrick Rutabanzibwa, who had also been named by Dr Slaa at a public rally, demanded an immediate apology, short of which he would institute a legal process against the MP.


Nimeifufua hii story hapa ili kuwakumbusha mafisadi kwamba hatujasahau walichosema miezi sita iliyopita. Kutotaka kwao kwenda mahakamani ni ushahidi tosha kwamba yaliyosemwa na Mh. Slaa ni ukweli mtupu na wameona wakienda mahakamani wataumbuka zaidi.
Gray Mgonja alitumia muda mrefu kuongea na waandishi wa habari kuelezea dhamira yake ya kumshtaki Dr. Slaa, muda wa kazi alilipwa kwa kupiga hadithi za kusadikika. Kwa kuanzia tu, achukuliwe hatua za kinidhamu kwa kutumia muda wa kazi 'kupiga soga'
