A week ago, the Watchdog revealed that Rupiah Banda has given president Edgar Lungu two names of his (Rupiah) lawyers to appoint as Attorney General and Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The two lawyers are Steven Lungu and Likando Kalaluka. See that article here

But the Law Association of Zambia has rejected Likando. LAZ told parliament that Mathew Mohan’s lawyer is unfit for the job.

LAZ vice-president Linda Kasonde said even if Likando has been practicing law for 11 years and meets the number of years required to be appointed to that office, he does not have proper qualities.

In simple language, LAZ is saying Likando is incompetent and childish. Likando works with the PF law firm headed by Bonaventure Mutale.
