President Edgar Lungu hopes that that the new Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) President Linda Kasonde will continue with the LAZ’s noble principle of providing balanced guidance in legal affairs, good governance and social justice.

The Head of State has also congratulated Ms Kasonde who has just been elected as the new Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) President.

Ms Kasonde was elected yesterday at the Annual General Meeting of the members of the Law Association of Zambia in respect of the year ended 31st December 2015 held at the Avani Victoria Falls Resort (former Zambezi Sun International Hotel).

President Lungu says Ms Kasonde’s election is very significant as she becomes the first woman to head this prestigious organisation.

He says recognizes the immense quality, experience and leadership that Ms Kasonde will bring to the institution.
He adds that Ms Kasonde s known as a change champion and successfully helped organise the International Bar Association’s Women Lawyers Business initiative in 2015.

The Head of State says he is happy to celebrate her past achievements as she has risen from a committee members, to convenor of international relations committee, council member, honorary secretary, vice-president and now President.

And UPND leader Hakainde Hichilema has congratulations to Linda Kasonde on her election as the first female President of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ).

In a congratulatory message, Mr Hichilema said the LAZ general council did not elect Ms. Kasonde simply because she is a woman, but because she clearly deserves the position and is capable of delivering her duties diligently.

He said LAZ is such an important institution in the country, as it is the cornerstone of preserving and discharging justice to citizens.

Mr Hichilema said her election this year is particularly important and will present a great and early challenge for her as the country goes for elections.

“LAZ is one of the major stakeholders that must be firm in ensuring credibility and transparency in the entire process. Sincere congratulations once more and wish her God’s guidance and grace. We are sure she will also serve as a great inspiration to other women in the country,” he said.

Ms. Kasonde was on Saturday night elected LAZ President after defeating two other contenders Sydney Chisenga and Kafula Mwiche.

  1. Useless body! Women are being undressed publicly and they have done nothing to show for up to this time! They are irrelevant to what is going on in Zambia at the moment!! Get that woman fuc.ked and find a husband!! Again LAZ is a useless body to the public!!

    • I don’t believe she won the race cleanly. We all know how corrupt zambia is, and how Brown Envelopes are traded like cigarettes

      I wish her well, but she rubs me the wrong way, It could be that I am being harsh in looking at her, but I am not impressed.

      Here is the thing, she did her LLb at University of Leicester.which is ranked 73 / 125 in the UK alone.

      This University is like showing off Zim dollars in zambia, do you get where I am coming from people?

      I am doing my PhD and you will never hear of me boast and I am only 27

      Good luck to her and LAZ but this is ridiculous


    • Martha must be very jelousy of her now. Martha has brought shame on herself by being involved in dubious meetings with HH and the group. Congrats madame!

  2. @Mushota, you can have your phD, but you are not garanted to attain such an office, for leaders are born not made. They are so many phD educated fools around!

  3. @Mushota you sound like some one who has never been to school most of the times, you gramma sometimes is like that of a grade seven so spare us from this your PHD nonsense.

  4. Teach your children to appreciate good things and they shall grow up with gratitude. Teach them Insults and they shall be parroting all the time. CONGRATULATIONS for being elected leader of that group called LAWYERS.

  5. Linda Kasonde congratulations to you and congratulations to LAZ on this milestone. Now to you Mushota, if at all you are pursuing your PhD and you are only 27 congrtulations to you as well. Now tell the nation your track record of professional deeds. Who are you? What have you done? In fact what is your profession? Where did you go to school? We kanangwa ka muntu iwe listen, it is not what you have or purport to have but how you have used what you have or purport to have to help humanity. Sister Kasonde ni FORWARD sistele.
