On September 20, 2017, we published a story with a headline; NITA’s Shs35bn at Stake as Tumwebaze, Muhakanizi Fight, but with a different link carrying Mr. Charles Mbire’s name.
The story alleged that Mr. Charles Mbire was connected to M/S Soliton Telmec Ltd and its questionable ‘exorbitant’ transactions with NITA.
We have however since established that Mr. Mbire isn’t one of the owners of Soliton as had been insinuated in the story. He is also not related or connected to NITA.
We have since retracted the story and do apologize for not seeking Mr. Mbire’s side of the story.
We therefore apologize to Mr. Mbire for the damage and inconveniences the story might have caused to him.
