I can’t appear before LAZ – DPP Nchito

MTEMBO REPLYDirector of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Mutembo Nchito has told the the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) that he is above such committees and as such can’t apperar before them for disciplinary charges.

Nchito was summoned by the  Legal Practitioners’ Committee of LAZ on   a professional misconduct charge.

The second summoning  of the DPP  follows a complaint raised  with LAZ by  MMD Solwezi Central Member of Parliament Lucky Mulusa  who complained to the association that Mr  Nchito had lied to the parliamentary select committee when he was being screened for his current  job by the parliamentary select committee.

According to the latest summons dated 30th May 2013, LAZ has changed venue from Lusaka to Ndola City Council Chamber where he is expected to appear before a five man committee.

On May 24 Mr Nchito failed to appear before the committee for unexplained reasons and did not even communicate or send an apology for his absence when LAZ summoned him.

“You will be appearing before the Legal Practitioners Committee of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) until the matter is determined and the committee may proceed to determine the matter in your absence,” the letter signed by Silas Mambwe read in part.
