Stella Ndirangu, Programme Manager at the Kenyan section of the International Commission of Jurists, speaks to Wayamo Foundation’s Judie Kaberia about domestic investigations and prosecution of International crimes in East Africa.
Ndirangu discusses the importance of political will to the success of Rwanda’s efforts to prosecute international crimes, and the contrasting situation in Uganda’s International Crimes Division. She also discusses the political dimension of the tensions between the African Union, its member states and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
On 21 November 2017, the Wayamo Foundation hosted an International Symposium on the theme, “International Crimes, Domestic Justice – Accountability and Capacity Building in East Africa” in Kigali, Rwanda, where Stella Ndirangu was a participant.
Justice Talks are a series of interviews about justice and accountability in Africa and beyond, featuring experts and leaders from the fields of human rights, international criminal law, politics and civil society.
