Caritas Zambia has been following with dismay the recent attacks directed at the LAZ and its President in her personal capacity.
That is why we totally agree with the SADC Lawyers Association that said, "The march and siege of the Bar Association's offices in broad daylight is the height of assault on the Rule of Law and independence of the legal profession in Zambia." Indeed, what transpired on the material day goes to show how low we have sunk as a country on such matters, and this worrying assault on what is remaining of our democratic tenets in Zambia needs to be halted and reversed henceforth. At the same time, Caritas Zambia wishes to state that it fully and solidly stands in solidarity with LAZ and its President, Ms. Linda Kasonde.
