Independent Power Tanzania Ltd. and several others have filed a suit against David Kafulila, a Kigoma Member of Parliament, asking for Sh310 billion in damages for allegedly issuing defamatory statements against them.
Other plaintiffs include Mr. Harbinder Sing Seth, the Executive Chairman for both the Independent Power Tanzania Ltd., and Pan Africa Power Solutions Tanzania.
The plaintiffs are asking for Sh210 billion to compensate the defamation claimed by the NCCRMageuzi ticket MP and tainting their business image as well as PAP and IPTL firms. They’re also looking for an order asking the politician to apologize for his comments.
The plaintiffs are also seeking Sh100 billion on damages for the disruption and convenience after defamatory comments made by Kafulila. They’re also asking to pay for suits costs and interest payments.
It’s claimed that Kafulila submitted information of the firm’s involvement of IPTL in a fraudulent deal that prompted the public to think it was part of a foul transaction that required taking money from an account at Central Bank.
