Former Communication and Transport Minister, William Harrington has welcomed the decision by former Tourism Minister Sylvia Masebo to sue him.

Ms. Masebo has sued Mr. Harrington for allegedly bringing her reputation into ridicule and disrepute after the tribunal cleared her of allegations of obtaining pecuniary advantage relating to the operations of the Zambia Wildlife Authority (ZAWA) when she served as Minister of Tourism.

But Mr. Harrington has told Qfm News in a telephone interview that he thinks Ms. Masebo may not have seriously thought through her decision to sue him.

Mr. Harrington however says he cannot wait to receive Ms. Masebo’s Court summons.

He notes that once his lawyers have studied the documents, he will raise preliminary issues with regards Ms Masebo’s law suit.

Mr. Harrington could not however state what preliminary issues his lawyers intend to raise pertaining to Ms. Masebo’s legal claims.
