-- Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani is noted for his straightforward and transparent business practices. Apart from significant success in his three decades of business ventures, Dr. Mahtani is also known for his philanthropic and charitable business practices. Dr. Rajan Mahtani has maintained a transparent and ethical business and professional relationship with prominent politicians, economists and noted entities in Zambia and outside. One of them was Levy Mwanawasa, the late ex-President of Zambia. As a result, it was extremely shocking when it was found that Miriam Mwanawasa
, the daughter of late ex-President Levy Mwanawasa, made a false claim regarding Dr. Rajan Mahtani
In a recent Facebook post, Miriam Mwanawasa claimed that Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani wanted to takeover the farmland at Masaiti, which is owned by the Mwanawasa family. As this claim was extremely serious and defamatory, it started making rounds across the social media channels. When Dr. Mahtani came to know about this misdirected post, he shared a press release to clarify the fake post. In this press release, Dr. Rajan Mahtani clarified that he had maintained a long-standing and transparent business and professional relationship with Levy Mwanawasa
which went even after his death. At the same time, he never made any claims that he wanted to inherit the land which belonged to the Mwanawasa family.
The post shared by Miriam Mwanawasa was not only defamatory, it was also fake as it did not have any reality, evidence or supporting documents. As such, Dr. Rajan Mahtani
called out these fake post to be ludicrous, malicious and also said that he will be taking actions against this post.
