Mr Mwaliteta said if the Socialist Party candidate does not render an apology by Wednesday, he will be left with no option but sue Maneya Mwale in her personal capacity.

Mr Mwaliteta has since advised the Socialist Party candidate to prove the allegations as soon as possible before court action is taken.
