His Excellency Mr Rupiah Banda, President of the Republic of Zambia, will on Wednesday 27th April officially open the 6th International Association of Women Judges Africa Regional Conference at the Zambezi Sun Hotel in Livingstone.
This conference has been organised by the Zambia Association of Women Judges, which is a chapter of the International Association of Women Judges.
The President has commended the International Association of Women Judges which is a non-governmental organisation comprising more than four thousand members, at all judicial levels, from over ninety countries, for its various professional and social development works throughout the world.
He has noted that since inception in 1991, the International Association of Women Judges has united women from diverse legal judicial systems who share a commitment to equal justice and the rule of law.
The President observed that: “The objective of the International Association Of Women Judges is dialogue and this deserves admiration. Through dialogue women judges from all over the world are able to share experiences and best practices in areas such as violence against women and gender bias in court.”
President Banda has offered his full support for increased women’s participation as judges in the judicial life of the nation, adding:
“Let me assure the Zambia Association of Women Judges and the people of Zambia that for as long as I am President, the Zambia Association of Female Judges is assured of receiving new members as I intend to continue appointing more female judges to the bench.”
