President Edgar Lungu has challenged Senior Lawyers to contribute to the development of the justice system in Zambia by writing more legal books.
President Lungu explains that Government as outlined in the Seventh National Development Plan is focusing on strengthening the capacity of institutions within the legal and justice sector.
The Head of State says the appeal to contribute to the development of the justice system is not only for legal practitioners but also other citizens with vast experience to share their knowledge in books for the benefit of the future generations.
President Lungu was speaking last evening when He officially launched a book ‘Zambian Civil Procedure Commentary and Cases’ authored by Speaker of the National Assembly Patrick Matibini.
The President further commended Dr. Matibini for authoring a book which will contribute massively to the development of the country’s legal system.
He says he is convinced that the book will go a long way in providing rich and valuable information for Law Students and Legal practitioners.
And Dr. Matibini said he drew inspiration to write the book from the jurisdiction in the commonwealth.
Dr. Matibini said he is hopeful the 26-chapter book will be useful to students studying Law and the Zambian legal community.
He thanked his wife Ethel and children for supporting him through the time he has been writing the book.
Those in attendance at the book launch included retired Chief Justice Enerst Sakala and Chief Justice Ireen Mambilima among others.
