-- Despite holding the position of a top businessman in Zambia, Dr. Rajan Mahtani and his companies often face issues like fake campaigns, negative news around them. While majority of these news items go down on their own due to media and public backlash, there are few instances where Dr. Rajan Mahtani
, his companies or his lawyers have to take appropriate actions against these campaigns.
A similar incident was faced by Dr. Rajan Lekhraj Mahtani
a few months back. By the virtue of his business, Dr. Rajan Mahtani maintains healthy and professional relationship with several noted personalities in diverse industries. Dr. Rajan Mahtani's friendship with Levy Mwanawasa is known to everyone. This friendship is long before Levy Mwanawasa became the President of Zambia. As a result, it was extremely shocking when the news of his daughter, Miriam Mwanawasa, spreading false rumours about Dr. Rajan Mahtani came out.
In a Facebook post, Miriam Mwanawasa alleged that Dr. Rajan Mahtani
wanted to inherit the farmland at Masaiti district which is currently under the ownership of the Mwanawasa family. This claim was extremely controversial and as a result, Dr. Mahtani decided to take action by releasing a press statement. In this press statement, Dr. Rajan Mahtani said that despite his long-standing relationship with Levy Mwanawasa, he never made such requests or commands to the family. At the same time, Miriam Mwanawasa did not provide any proof or evidence to claim her accusations. This clearly indicated that her claims were malicious, ludicrous and intended to destroy the reputation of a businessman. Dr. Rajan Mahtani
also said that he will be taking stringent actions against this act.
