Five PF lawyers led by Kelvin Bwalya Fube (KBF) have petitioned the Law Association of Zambia to call for an extra-ordinary general meeting at which they wish to pass a vote of no confidence in the entire 16-member LAZ Council.
And LAZ, through its honorary secretary Sashi Nchito Kateka has set Saturday April 29, 2017 as date for the meeting to allow debate for the removal of the current executive.
According to petitioners: Fube, Tutwa Ngulube, Robson Malipenga, Terrence Mwape Chabu and Kondwani Musukwa, the LAZ Council has failed to discharge its mandate.
The PF lawyers claim that the LAZ Council was wrong to appoint Musa Mwenye to Act on behalf of Nchima Nchito in a matter where Nchito has been charged with impersonation and that LAZ was wrong to join the High Court Case involving the liquidation of The Post Newspapers Ltd.
The PF lawyers also say the current LAZ supports the opposition and not the PF and that LAZ refused to support the ill-fated referendum on the bill of rights.
In response to the petitioner’s proposal, LAZ has allowed the extra ordinary general meeting to be held at Radisson Blu next Saturday.
“It is hereby given that an extra ordinary general meeting of the members of the Law Association of Zambia will be held on Saturday, 29th April 2017 at Radisson Blu Hotel in the ball room, Lusaka at 08:00 hours.
With money from the PF, be assured that LAZ has been hijacked. It will now be another PF extension.
