Linda Kasonde

HRD, Lawyer

Linda Kasonde is a civil society activist and lawyer, and was the first woman to serve as President of the Law Association of Zambia. After finishing her term, she joined the law firm of Mulenga Mundashi Kasonde Legal Practitioners.

Despite the appearance of a non-hostile environment against HRDs, harassment and threats against them are rampant but very subtle. HRDs facing most harassment are those engaged in governance-related advocacy, as well as journalists who venture into investigative journalism.
