The influential Africa Report magazine has named Law Association of Zambia President Linda Kasonde as one of the people to look out for in 2017.
The publication said Ms. Kasonde at 37 years of age has emerged as a strong defender of human rights and freedom of expression in Zambia.
Ms. Kasonde’s strong stance of constitutionalism in the country as LAZ President has seen her branded as enemy of the ruling PF.
Commenting on the development, Ms. Kasonde said “Quite by surprise I have just found out that I’ve been named one of the people to look out for in 2017 by The Africa Report.”
The Africa Report has established itself as the international publication of reference dedicated to African affairs.
It is the guide used by decision makers to anticipate economic and political changes in Africa and relied upon for the expertise of an independent editorial team in its surveys, sector reports and country focus published in each issue.
Its recognised high-quality coverage of the African business environment is combined with the widest Pan-African and international circulation.
Every month, The Africa Report provides more than 400,000 African and international readers with expert analysis of Africa’s fast-changing political and economic landscapes.
