The August 24 LAZ AGM, had resolved to maintain that Justice Lombe Chibesakunda is not qualified to hold the office of the country’s Chief Justice and that the association would engage relevant authorities on the issue of filling the vacant position of the country’s Chief Justice.
LAZ president James Banda has told Qfm in an interview that the said meeting with the Attorney General, which is the initial measure the association had resolved to use to have the vacant position of the country’ s Chief Justice filled, follows a letter the Association wrote to the Ministry of Justice.
Mr. Banda notes that the letter was sent to the Ministry on the 26th of August last month and the Ministry replied last week to advise the Association on the date to hold the said meeting.
And Mr. Banda has expressed delight that resolutions that the Association’s August 24 AGM had resolved are being followed through at a good pace.
Earlier LAZ had however indicated that it will litigate over on the issue of the vacant position of the country’s Chief Justice if its intended plans to engage relevant authorities on the matter fails.
