-- Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani
is one of the most recognised and prominent businessman in Zambia. His business ventures span more than three decades ago during which, Dr. Rajan Mahtani established numerous successful companies. Some of these companies are Mahtani Group of Industries, Finance Bank Zambia
and Finsbury Investments
. With this business empire, comes networks and business relationships with prominent personalities across the nation. Dr. Rajan Mahtani
has maintained a long-lasting and transparent relationship with Late Levy Mwanawasa, the former president of Zambia. This friendship goes way beyond, even before Levy Mwanawasa became the President of Zambia. As a result, the social post by Miriam Mwanawasa, daughter of the late ex-President was extremely controversial.
Miriam Mwanawasa made a social media post in which she claimed that Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani wanted to inherit the farm at the Masaiti District which is currently owned by the Mwanawasa family. To expose this false post, Dr. Rajan Mahtani shared a press release in which he clarified about his friendship with late Levy Mwanawasa. Dr. Rajan Mahtani also said that he never made such claims with the Mwanawasa family and there was no proof or evidence from Miriam Mwanawasa. As such, the post was considered as ludicrous and malicious with the intention of damaging Dr. Mahtani's
reputation. Dr. Mahtani also said that he will be taking stringent actions against this unethical post.
