An organization dedicated to advancing justice and development in Africa is the Africa Judges and Jurists Forum (AJJF), a pan-African network of judges and jurists.

The forum functions by offering legal knowledge to governments, international organizations, donor agencies, the commercial sector, and civil society groups.

Justice (Ret.) Mohammed Chande Othman of Tanzania will lead the Trial Observation Mission in 2022.

Justice Moses Chinhengo of the Court of Appeal in Lesotho, Justice Henry Boissie Mbha of the Electoral Court of South Africa, and the Hon. Lady Justice Lillian Tibatemwa-Ekirikubinza of the Supreme Court of Uganda are also part of the delegation.

The judges will meet with the parties to the petition individually before the hearings begin. This includes the Independent Electoral and Boundaries Commission (IEBC), the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP), and the Attorney General.
The purpose of these one-on-one meetings is to acquaint the renowned jurists with the petition’s interested parties and to brief them on the procedure and rules that will be followed.
