THE Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) has congratulated Lillian Fulata Shawa-Siyunyi for her appointment as Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). LAZ president Linda Kasonde said it was for the first time that a woman had held such a position in a substantive capacity. “This is the first time that a woman has held such a position in a substantive capacity and therefore, we wish her every success in her new role,” she said. Ms Kasonde said LAZ wanted to see a satisfactory resolution by the court, particularly the Constitutional Court, of the pending issues as to how and when a DPP who was guaranteed security of tenure under the Constitution could be removed from office. She said that was so as to ensure that all Constitution office holders truly enjoyed security of tenure.
