By Bright Chikele:
LAW Association of Zambia (LAZ) president Linda Kasonde is embarrassing the association and the entire legal fraternity in Zambia with her un-researched statements, Patriotic Front information and publicity secretary Sunday Chanda has said.
He charged that it was ridiculous for Ms. Kasonde to mislead Zambians with false information.
Mr. Chanda was reacting to remarks made by Ms. Kasonde indicating that the action taken by the Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) and law enforcers against The Post newspaper was made in bad faith and politically motivated.
He described as devoid of legal grounding the remarks by Ms Kasonde, saying that the officers were doing the correct thing as the Post newspaper owed poor Zambians huge sums of money.
“The LAZ president must slow down and make coherent statements based on facts before she runs the risk of embarrassing the reputable LAZ and entire legal fraternity in Zambia.
