  1. ECL must learn from LAZ. Any member of your entity MUST be above board. LAZ MUST also learn to disclose what evils the suspended lawyers have done. After all there MUST be victims out there who MUST know typical misdeeds laywers do against their clients which could lead to LAZ disciplining them. This is a serious problem with us in Zambia. Wrongs are not broadcasted but buried under carpets. This is poor handling of ills. All ills MUST be broadcasted loudly to all citizens so that each one of us is able to lookout for misconducts and poor handling of our problems in the country.

    • Like they did by telling us that the current president Edgar Chagwa Lungu stole from a widow and hence his practising certificate was withdrawn. Please tell us their sins so we know not to hire them!

  2. Laz has a code of conduct for its members. There is a procedure followed to suspend and de-register their Members. Even when Edgar Lungu was de-registered as a practicing Lawyer the same disciplinary procedures were followed. The 3 lawyers have only been suspended for now. They will be called to appear b4 a LAZ appointed Tribunal. That Tribunal will listen to evidence and decide whether or not they should be de-registered in terms of the Code. LAZ cannot de-register their members without first investigating and suspending and Hearing the Members. If it were Concourt the 3 Members would have been expelled without investigations,suspension and a Proper Hearing. Concourt can learn a few things from LAZ in as far as Legal Processes are concerned.

    • But ZICA was quick to comment on attack of LAZ offices but not misconduct of KITWE CITY COUNCIL DIRECTOR OF FINANCE what has happened ACCOUNTANTS members are freely misconduct themselves

  3. Lol…… Telling us what sins they have committed i think will be of help and those who hire them will be awear of their dirty deeds.hence it will help a number of people who go to them to be on safe side so tell us so dat we dnt judge them.

  4. Concourt judges are useless pepets of appointing authority so called hence can make objective decisions on their own but being directed.Brave LAZ and its President Linda Kasonde
