Dangote Industries Zambia said it is suing the country’s Labour Minister, Fackson Shamenda, for defamation after he claimed a senior Dangote official from Nigeria tried to bribe him.
The subsidiary of the Dangote Group, owned by Aliko Dangote, is claiming unspecified damages for slander and libel as well as special damages.
On 15 September, the Post Newspaper carried a story under the headline “Dangote offers Shamenda a bribe” in which the minister claimed that a Nigerian Human Resources Manager from the company offered him a bribe, which he rejected.
