Finance Minister Alexander Chikwanda has expressed extreme disappointment and described the act to secretly record him during a private conversation as exceedingly immoral.
Mr. Chikwanda says he is of the view that secretly recording him is not legally permissible and is a departure from ethics.
He however says he is not inclined to take legal action and has called for decency from the Post newspaper.
Mr. Chikwanda has said the Post would gain more by promoting unity instead of spreading hatred and malice.
Meanwhile, Mr. Chikwanda described his relationship with President Michael Sata as the most intimate and he will continue to work with him for the development of the country.
And the minister says at no time did he direct the Zambia Revenue Authority -ZRA to raid the Post newspaper offices.
Mr. Chikwanda says he does not take part in the running of ZRA and has no scores to settle with the Post.
