Kasonde stays: KFB withdraws impeachment motionBy Joseph Mwenda on 29 Apr 2017
Kelvin Bwalya Fube has withdrawn the motion to impeach Linda Kasonde and the current LAZ executive.
This was after a majority of LAZ members debated against the impeachment motion, saying they would rather be disbanded by parliament than be cowed down by threats from politicians.
KBF then said to foster unity, he was withdrawing the motion.
Earlier LAZ members assembled at Radison Blu Hotel to vote for or against the current LAZ executive.
A motion was raised by lawyer Terrence Chabu, demanding that the LAZ executive must not chair the Extraordinary General Meeting because they may be conflicted, as they were facing a vote of no confidence.
But the floor took the view that the LAZ rules were clear that only the executive can chair such a meeting.
Lawyer Augustine Hamwela then raise a preliminary issue against the proposed vote of no confidence, arguing that the Law Association of Zambia Rules do 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 states that the executive stays for 2 years and that they can only vacate office on prescribed grounds including insanity and bankruptcy.
LAZ president Linda Kasonde who is chairing the meeting still allowed the motion to go ahead.
KBF, the mover of the motion then proposed that the matter is taken to arbitration.
After debates, he withdrew the motion.
