Still faced with the impossibility of meeting face-to-face, Wednesday 21 April 2021 saw the Africa Group for Justice and Accountability (AGJA) and its Secretariat, the Wayamo Foundation, hold their second online Zoom meeting to discuss important developments, and brainstorm about ways forward in light of current circumstances.

The meeting was presided over by Vice-Chair, Athaliah Molokomme, and was attended by seven of the AGJA’s eleven members. Calling in from their respective bases in Switzerland, Tanzania, the United Kingdom, South Africa, The Gambia and Germany, the members briefly reviewed AGJA’s and Wayamo’s latest activities, after which they discussed a number of planned projects for 2021/22. Although any final arrangements will necessarily hinge on how the pandemic continues to develop, members considered possible engagements in Senegal, Kenya, Sudan and South Sudan.

While everyone hoped that an in-person meeting would be possible sooner rather than later, members nonetheless remained committed to ‘furthering AGJA’s goals from their desks’ in the meantime.
