Madhuku sues Daily News


National Constitutional Assembly leader Lovemore Madhuku is suing the Daily News for US$200 000 over two stories that it published in June last year claiming that Madhuku was part of a Zimbabwe African National Union-Patriotic Front delegation to a Southern African Development Community summit in Mozambique. The articles had the headlines: Bloated SADC entourage and Thank you SADC. Madhuku says Associated Newspapers of Zimbabwe, owners of the Daily News, and its editor Stanley Gama, had approached the Voluntary Media Council of Zimbabwe for a resolution of the matter and had accepted that the publications contained falsehoods about him and promised to publish a retraction and apology but had not done so “apparently because the defendants want the falsehoods to remain in the public domain for reasons best known to themselves”.
