I am a Constitutional and human rights lawyer with major research interests in the rights of indigenous peoples and the natural resources governance framework. I am the National Legal and Policy Advisor at Zimbabwe Environmental Law Association. Further I am the thematic lead of the Land and Natural Resources programme. As a legal practitioner, both in private practice and as a member of the National Prosecuting Authority, I have grappled with community related issues covering a broad area ranging from criminal to land cases. While in our law ignorance is no excuse, it is correct that the major problem driving human rights violations is the lack of capacity and knowledge to hold duty bearers accountable. It is thus critical to adopt legal empowerment models as a means of capacitating communities not only to demand their rights but to be involved in the law and policy making processes. Besides work experience, I consider myself as an academic. I am currently a Doctoral candidate in Law with the University of Fort Hare in South Africa. My area of research is on the protection of indigenous peoples rights to land and natural resources in Zimbabwe.
