Who i am ?

"In the discourse on Africa’s development, justice is not an issue; it is the issue". There is the motto that drives my commitment to human rights justice and constitutionalism in Africa.

With an early calling to the legal profession, my subsequent involvements with the academia in both civil and common law spheres shaped my passion for human rights justice. My resolve to capitalise academic knowledge through practice led me to work as a senior officer at the most influential institutions of the African human rights justice system, namely the African Commission and African Court on Human and Peoples’ Rights.

As part of my significant experience in that field, I worked across various regions of the continent, most prominently at the Francophone Africa Association of Supreme Courts, the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, the African Union Department of Political Affairs, the Africa Office of the International Commission of Jurists and the Pretoria Centre for Human Rights.

I teach human rights and comparative constitutional law at the Central European University (Hungary) and the University of Pretoria (South Africa). I contributed to human rights development in Africa in various capacities through litigation in regional courts, academic publications, consultancies, and training for lawyers, judges and civil society. I am the author of several journal articles, commentaries, book chapters and books on human rights, international criminal law and constitutionalism in Africa.
