EHAHRD-Net welcomes the opportunity offered by the 50th Ordinary Session of the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR) to highlight some of the current human rights issues in the East and Horn of Africa region for the period of May 2011 to October 2011.

This report especially assesses the status of civil and political rights in the sub-region, given the worrying range of restrictions implemented during this period.

Restrictions range from the implementation of restrictive laws mainly aimed at thwarting freedom of association and expression, acts of intimidation against key civil society actors and physical and verbal threats. Violations against journalists in particular have been on the increase in most of the countries in the sub-region. Another trend worth noting also is the increase in the collaboration among states in the region in regard to the repatriation of refugees.

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.
