Malawi: The newly ushered leadership at the Malawi Law Society says their group will make sure that social justice is restored in the country.

The remarks come after the election of the new leadership following the society’s annual general meeting which they held few days ago.

Speaking after the development, newly elected president Mandala Mambulasa said his team is prepared to continue from where the last executive stopped and make sure that they work for the betterment of Malawians.

“We understand there are a lot of things that our friends did in their time and there must be some issues that were left on the way.  We will make sure we continue from where our friends stopped and where possible introducing new ideas that will help in the smooth running of the society.” Mambulasa said.

The now out-of-office executive was led by lawyer John Gift Mwakhwawa and was well-known for being critical of government’s perceived ill-doings

However Mambulasa said the lawyers’ society will still press for the dominance of social justice especially from the executive arm-of-government, which is the duty bearer to the citizenry.

“It is our responsibility as a legal-and-social rights body to stand-up for justice and this is one of the things that Malawians should expect from the law society or from us.”

“Otherwise, we will try to do our best levels as we are not working for our own, but for Malawians.” Mambulasa said.
