Along with two other HRC-Net members from Africa, the Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS) and African Democracy Forum (ADF), EHAHRDP initiated a campaign aimed at preventing Egypt from being selected as the forthcoming HRC president. The letter, which was signed onto by 32 NGOs from 20 African countries, and was sent out to African Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFAs) as well as to other key states, generated significant discussion and also a certain amount of unease amongst the rather negative Egyptian mission in Geneva who later pulled out of the nomination process. Ambassador Martin Ihoeghian Uhomoibhi of Nigeria was finally selected as the 2008-2009 session President.

Human Rights Defender of the month: Joseph Oleshangay

As a human rights lawyer and advocate with the High Court of the United Republic of Tanzania, Joseph Moses Oleshangay spends most of his time crossing from one court to another, litigating human rights cases, some with life-altering implications for ordinary people. It is a monumental responsibility, one he never envisaged growing up.

As a young boy born into a Maasai household in northern Tanzania, his entire childhood revolved around cattle: “Our entire livelihood revolved around cattle. As a child, the main preoccupation was to tend to cows, and my formative years were spent grazing cattle around Endulen. It a simple lifestyle,” he says.
