Society must act on wayward lawyers

THIS is an open letter to the secretary of the Law Society of Zimbabwe.


Someone once told me that if you throw a stone at random in one West African country you a

re likely to hit a thief but in Zimbabwe you are likely to hit a lawyer.


Any place you go in the world you get to find out that lawyers are among the most notorious thieves you can find.


In Zimbabwe some law firms are engaging in corrupt deals with some using unorthodox means to operate their businesses and to obtain audit certificates.


I know this is happening because I used to work in a law firm. To the secretary I plead that he tries to put an end to this rot.


Tapiwa Singini,

Harare.
