The University of Zambia (UNZA) Law students have emerged victorious in the first ever moot Court competition that was held in Livingstone.
The Law students beat other six Universities in the finale and walked away with a cheque worth K8,000 and an internship program.
Fortune Sinyangwe, one of the participants from UNZA said the contest was very competitive and he is glad they still emerged victorious.
“The reward for winning the competition will be shared among themselves as a team and not just the participants who were mooting,” said Sinyangwe.
Lufumbika Jilanda the other participant took to his social media platform to express his gratitude to be part of the competition.
“I am most honored to have had the privilege to represent UNZA as it becomes the first University in Zambia to win this competition,” wrote Jilanda in a Facebook post.
Meanwhile, UNZA Moot Court Chairperson Hope Homela said the competition was a learning experience and good for exposure and networking.
“UNZA walked away with a cheque worth K8,000, internship for the two participants who were mooting, books and certificates,” said Homela.
The Moot Court competition was held in commemoration of the Golden Jubilee for the the Law Association of Zambia (LAZ) and was attended by 10 Universities.
