LUSAKA, Zambia - Sept. 4, 2020 - PRLog -- The Steven Malama Award is a notable educational award in Zambia. The award was instituted in the year 2012 by Dr. Rajan Mahtani, one of the most respected businessman in Zambia. The award was instituted in association with Finance Bank Zambia with Dr. Rajan Mahtani as the chairman. The motive behind establishing this post was to honour late Steven Malama, one of the most notable and visionary law professional from Zambia. Steven Malama's contribution to legal framework of Zambia is significant, most notable being merger of the solicitor and registrar bar into a single bar. This feat was achieved after numerous persuasion of the Zambian government. This merger has been extremely significant as this new bar will help legal professionals in getting affiliation in a much easier manner.
