THE Non-governmental Gender Organisations’ Coordinating Council (NGOCC) says former Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) president, Linda Kasonde is, without doubt, an epitome of the quality and transformative leadership that women can provide if accorded opportunity. NGOCC executive director Engwase Mwale has congratulated Kasonde on her election as vice-president for the Africa Commonwealth Lawyers Association. Kasonde was elected on Monday, April 8, during the Commonwealth Law Association Conference held in Livingstone.
“We are confident that Ms Kasonde will provide the necessary leadership to the continental body given her exceptional leadership she has exhibited at various levels, including at the helm of the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ). As the women’s movement, we remain proud of her leadership. Ms Kasonde’s election to the Africa Commonwealth Lawyers Association is a demonstration of the confidence that the legal fraternity has in her leadership. She is, without doubt, an epitome of the quality and transformative leadership that women can provide if accorded the opportunity,” she said.
Mwale urged other women and young women to emulate the determination, resilience and focus of Kasonde. She said Kasonde’s election demonstrates that with focus and determination, everyone, girl, boy, woman or man could attain high levels of success in life.
“Once again, a hearty congratulations to Ms Linda Kasonde for this deserved achievement!” said Mwale.
