LAZ strongly condemns brutal attack on Its member at High Court



THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has condemned the thuggery and barbaric behavior that unfolded at the High Court yesterday, where a lawyer, Linus Eyaa, was physically attacked by aggrieved members of the public.

In a statement LAZ president Lungisani Zulu said the Association has established that Mr Eyaa was merely discharging his role as a Legal Practitioner in line with the provisions of the Legal Practitioners Act, Chapter 30 of the Laws of Zambia, when he met the unfortunate fate, from an opposing group in the case involving Money Grow Cooperative.

He reminded members of the public of the critical role lawyers play in the development of society, in line with every lawyer’s statutory mandate.

Mr Zulu said acts of physical violence against members of the legal profession are inimical to the advancement of the public interest, which lawyers advance.

He said lawyers have always stood and continue to stand on the side of society, even offering pro bono services to indigents.

“That the unfortunate incident happened in the precincts of the High Court, which are considered as a “holy ground of justice” makes the incident more distressing and any efforts by any citizens to take the law into their own hands deserves condemnation in the strongest terms, by all well-meaning citizens,” he said.

Mr Zulu has since commended police for its quick action in saving the lawyer.

“We are happy to also learn that six suspects of the violence have since been arrested by Kabwata. Police and now await subsequent court appearance to answer for their irresponsible actions,” he said.

Justice for girl killed by 10 dogs starts



A FARM director whose 10 vicious dogs mauled a 13-year-old girl to death has been charged with manslaughter and appeared before the Lusaka Magistrate’s Court.

Last month, Shim Yaming’s dogs attacked and killed Sharon Banda, 13, who is the daughter of the accused’s person’s farm worker who lives within the ranch.

The incident happened around 05:00 hours when the victim went outside to use the toilet only to be attacked by the vicious beasts belonging to Shi of New Kasama.

Police visited the scene and discovered the dead body of the girl lying on the ground with multiple dog bites all over the body.
The victim’s father Allan Banda, 43, a poultry man at the farm, told police that his daughter was bitten and died on the spot as she sustained deep cuts all over her body.
Shi, 40, was later detained and slapped with the offence of reckless and negligent act and police later terminated some of the dogs which attacked the girl.

Yesterday, the accused appeared before the Lusaka Magistrate’s Court charged with manslaughter.

Allegations are that on November 8 this year, Shi did cause the death of Sharon.
The case was allocated to magistrate Mwandu Sakala.

The Director of Public Prosecutions is supposed to issue a committal later so that the accused in the matter is taken to the High Court for trial since the offence he is facing can only be tried in a higher court.
