The Supreme Court in this case dealt with the liquidation of the Post Newspapers, a company which was responsible for publishing the popular The Post newspaper. A group of people who claimed to be creditors of the Post filed a petition in the High Court for the winding up of the company. Mr. Lewis Chisanga Mosho was subsequently appointed as the provisional liquidator.

The appeal before the Supreme Court dealt with issues and questions relating to the proper procedure and process relating to the liquidation and the liquidator, the role of the court and the rights of shareholders and directors during the liquidation process.
