"We are not against the press, we are just saying 'write the truth about MMD, write the truth about Rupiah Banda, write the truth about Kunda, write the truth about Jeff Kaande', respect the leadership.....The most unfortunate part is that Daily Mail and Times of Zambia if they are here, you are not helping us also even though you are ours.......for the past six months we are just reading 'Rupiah Banda', 'George Kunda must resign', 'Jeff Kaande is giving money to cadres.' Hmmm there's no other news?"Jeff Kaande boldly claiming that the MMD owns the Daily Mail and Times of Zambia. But isn't this plunder of national resources? To take national property and call it yours, is clearly a form of theft. Yes, formal transfer into MMD hands is not there, but de-facto theft is clearly at play here because to all intents and purposes Jeff Kaande and his friends clearly believe and forcefully demand that national assets like the Times of Zambia and Daily Mail are property of the MMD.
