KBF’s LAZ Council impeachment motion fails

Kelvin Bwalya Fube has withdrawn a motion of no confidence against Linda Kasonde’ s LAZ executive to foster unity.


This was after the motion was laid on the floor during the extra ordinary general meeting which KBF and other lawyers pushed for.


KBF had tried to delay the EGM to 11:00hours by seeking an order from the High Court.


But judge Matthew Lungu last evening dismissed the application.


Earlier, a motion was raised by lawyer Terrence Chabu that the LAZ executive must not chair the Extraordinary General Meeting because they may be conflicted since they were facing a vote of no confidence.
However, the floor took the view that the LAZ rules were clear that only the executive could chair such a meeting.


Lawyer Augustine Hamwela then raised a preliminary issue against the proposed vote of no confidence, arguing that the Law Association of Zambia Rules did not provide for the Law Association of Zambia executive to leave office through a vote of no confidence.


He argued that Rule 10 of the LAZ rules stated that the executive stays for two years and that they could only vacate office on prescribed grounds, including insanity and bankruptcy.


Kasonde, who is chairing the meeting, still allowed the motion to go ahead.
