Journalists leader swindles Mulongoti

Filed under: Breaking News |

Press association of Zambia PAZA executive Secretary Patson Phiri on Wednesday crooked leader of the newly formed party  Mike Mulongoti out of a Kr5000.

Mr. Mulongoti gave the PAZA leader KR5000 to organize a media breakfast and pay journalists transport refunds.

But in his usual style Phiri booked the infamous Zamcom lodge along Lusaka’s church road for free and only paid for the ‘awful’ breakfast which journalists expressed disgust.

Phiri fled the lodge upon Mr. Mulongoti requesting for receipts immediately after the event.

This left Mr Mulongoti and his assistant stunned and deeply disappointed.

Apparently Mulongoti and Phiri have a long history of working together. When Phiri got married, mulongoti who was then minister paid for most wedding costs.

But once Mulongoti lostb his job, Patson started avoiding him.

Phiri is one of the journalists who were fired by the PF government just after forming government but has since wormed his way in again.

  3. Patson Phiri, uyu mwana ni khuluku losila. He rode on the back of his shushushu brother who, I think, was cleared by his fellow shushushu for also being crooked. Apa I support the PF for kicking him out of the Times. Mr Mulongoti, report this khuluku to the police.

  16. Even Mike Mulongoti must be shocked with this fake story. All this is fake Mr Mulongoti only gave PAZA K2000rb on sunday and this is what Mr Phiri asked for. When they first discussed this with the PP team including Mr Lungo who attended the meeting, Mr Mulongoti himslef wondered whether the figure was adequate but Phiri maintained that PAZA does not make profits on the breakfast meetings it organises. The receipt was drawn of K2000 only and the hall was charged plus the two modereators Kellys kaunda and newton sibanda who were paid K700 since Newston also got fuel refund. The brekfast was K1,015. There were three journalists who asked for taxi refunds and Patson gave Nancy, the PA for Mr Mulongoti and the remaining 100 is what PAZA used to communicate and deliver letters to some media houses.secondly, Mr Mulongoti never donated a ngwee towarsd Patson’s the wedding it was fully sponsored by the family and some friends.PAZA does not have a history of paying journalists transprot refunds and that is why it was not factored in the cost of hosting Mr Mulongoti. The good part is that Mr Mulongoti is available and so is Mr Lungo and he is also shocked about the fabrication by an individual who lacks honour and integrity because she or he expects funding from such meetings which is terrible.paza only pays if it hosting a seminar or workshop and not a breakfast meeting. We shall not exploit sources becoz we want to satisfy our pockets. We ask for K5000 if the source wants the breakfast meeting to take pace at a 5 star hotel and ZAMCOM is not. thank you we are hosting another official next week and please know that we do not make profits out of these functions and we are dealing with pipo who are alive to testify.

  19. This is total fabrication. I know Patson as a credible journalist and am sure he can’s sink so low over a Kr5000. Lets focus on real issues such as high cost of mealie meal and the failures of the Poor Finishing party. Iyi yeve mwanama guys

  21. Main problems here is; why do journalists have to be paid by the person who is hosting the event?
    So the one pays the most gets the best coverage, te?

    • @Kay-Thats how it is in Zambia. Even a simple Kaponya as long as that Kaponya has got enough Rebased Kwacha, he can call for a media breakfast, pay journalists,give then coffee and snacks,and the entire media can cover him like a King.

    • No, Mr Mulongoti is not crying for that money. Its the untrustworthy for Mr Patson Phiri which raises eyebrows. If, like the story goes that Mr Mulongoti played a major role in Mr Phiri’s life one time or the other, surely Mr Phiri could have asked Mr Mulongoti for assistance if he was that broke. Trust Bo ndate is very important.
