Losing PF candidate in the Chipata Central parliamentary by-election, Lameck Mangani has described as political propaganda reports that he has huge debt.
Mr. Mangani has also dispelled reports that he has fled Chipata because he has failed to pay back over 200,000 Kwacha, which he owes businessmen in the district.
Mr. Mangani says that reports that he borrowed a lot of money for the campaigns are political propaganda from MMD, Movement for Multi-Party Democracy to discredit his name.
He told Breeze News that MMD has gone further to mislead people that his Wise Donkey Lodge has been grabbed from him because of failing to pay back the debt.
Mr. Mangani says that he does not have any serious debt apart from what he described as bank obligations due to the nature of his private business.
He says that he left Chipata for Lusaka yesterday to check on his business interests and not because he has huge debt, which he has failed to pay back.
