As a lawyer, Mr. W.D.Mung'omba was first class and an expert in law. After passing the bar at the Inns of Court in the UK, he honed in on his skills working for several firms and then forming his own firm with partners - (MMW & Co). He practiced as both Barrister and Solicitor at the Zambian Bar. He was appointed as Zambia's legal advisor to the Zambian Mission at the United Nations and also had served as Minister-Counselor at Zambia's Embassy in Washington DC. He was also the legal and financial advisor of the Zambian Government Privatization team that advised Rothchild & Son Ltd UK in the legal documentation that led to the conclusion of the privatization of Zambia's copper mines. WIla Mung'omba's Leadership legacy book details this in a way that is inspirational to business leaders, legal professionals and all individuals who want to be leaders not only in their profession, but through other avenues for the benefit of the African Continent.
Wila Mung'omba's legacy leadership lessons as Lawyer:
1. The people of a country need a reliable and impactful platform to be heard.
WIla Mung'omba really took to heart and to the constitution what ordinary people had to say.
2. You can do so much more than your educational and professional skills.
He led very well, not only in the legal domain, but he translated these skills into other businesses and other domains to achieve real leadership goals.
3. The law is there to be adhered to.
Wila Mung'omba always emphasized that the law is there as a framework for people to operate in. It is not there to be constrictive or to be tested, but to protect and enable indivuduals and businesses to thrive and excel.
4.The constituion of a country has to be representative of as many people as possible.
If you are going to enact change and buy in, then you'd better connect with your stakeholders in a real and meaningful way that is relevent and makes sense to them.
5. Create a solid foundation that you strongly believe in, and then leverage off of it.
Law was Wila Mung'omba's foundation. He then used it as a lever to achieve greatness in many other spheres of business.
