Vice president George Kunda has told Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) president Steven Lungu to stop making alliances with political parties and concentrate on the core-objective of LAZ.
Kunda claimed that LAZ has done very little in the area of law reforms and wondered why its leaders should chose to start politicking.
Kunda told journalists in Lusaka today that LAZ should not behave as if it is part of the PF/UPND political alliance.
He was responding to calls by Lungu for the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Chalwe Mchenga to resign.
Kunda said there is no basis for the DPP to resign and said the call is ‘forthwith rejected’ and should be dismissed with the contempt it deserves.’
Kunda accused Lungu of comparing notes with PF leader Michael Sata before issuing statement on the DPP. He said Lungu is making the same allegations and issuing similar statements with Sata on the DPP.
Kunda said that the LAZ chairperson should be objective and impartial in the way he deals with public matters.
He said LAZ as a professional body of lawyers should protect the judiciary, the DPP and all lawyers.
