The Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has suspended the practicing license for UPND lawyer Martha Mushipe.
LAZ has also ordered that her law firm be shut down with immediate effect.
According to a letter signed by Legal Practitioners Committee’s honorary secretary Samuel Twumasi, Mushipe will no longer be allowed to appear before any court to practice.
“Take Notice that the above Practitioner has [been] suspended from practising law with immediate effect. By this notice, the said Practitioner is not to appear in any Court of Law/Tribunal and should not file Court process of whatever nature until further notice from the undersigned,” read the LAZ notice.
