Press Statement for immediate release and circulation
For some time now, The Zambian Observer has carried articles crediting me, Fred M’membe, which I have not written. A strange but worrying pattern.
Until now, I have not complained about the Zambian Observer’s knack for publishing falsehoods under my name. We had hoped their figment of imagination would have an end!
But their propensity to slander me is getting out of hand.
The Zambian Observer’s conduct is not a mistake. It is a premeditated activity whose motive they themselves know. It’s not just unprofessional, unethical but it’s both immoral and dirty.
It cannot continue. Don’t go all the length to destroy the noble platform and profession of journalism because doing so will rob the human race greatly.
I have not authored the article circulating in the Zambian Observer under the headline: A Must Read: The truth Fred M’membe voices out.
We urge the Zambian Observer to observe clearly and report truth.
It doesn’t hurt to cultivate news and inform our citizens but please don’t use my name for the sake of your circulation and capital.
Issued by Fred M’membe
