CEO, Centre for Strategic Litigation
Mr Rweyemamu has over a decade of experience working to promote social justice in the Eastern African region. He joined his colleagues to set up the Centre for Strategic Litigation in 2018 amid concerns over a declining civic space trend that swept the region. He has since worked to establish the institution, including leading the development of its first ever strategy. His passion for social justice and human rights stems from years working in the Eastern African region with some of the most marginalised communities and vulnerable groups. He has worked as a researcher, a grant maker and independent advisor with numerous bilateral and multilateral agencies in Tanzania, including the Legal Services Facility, the Policy Forum and the Foundation for Civil Society, as well as USAID, DFID, Global Affairs Canada (formerly the Canadian Department for Trade and International Development), Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), the World Bank and the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC). He also sits on the board of the Initiative for Peace and Reconciliation, as well as the Board of Educate the Children Trust.
