TrustAfrica, in partnership with the Dutch Embassy in Uganda, plans to host a media training on transitional justice and international criminal justice in Kampala, Uganda.[1] The purpose of the training is to build the capacity of a select number of media professionals from South Sudan and Uganda to effectively report on and generate constructive public debates on transitional justice developments and international criminal justice at the local, national, regional and international levels. The media’s engagement in generating constructive public debates on accountability will in turn ensure that the media is strategically placed to advance the democratization processes in South Sudan and Uganda.

The round table discussion on Ayisha Osori’s Book, “Love Does Not Win Elections”,  organized byTrustAfrica, Africans Rising, OSIWA, and Sylv Saki had a very good turnout. Civil society members, intellectuals, students and media personalities met at TrustAfrica’s premises to discuss around Ayisha's beautifully written memoir. In her Book, the Executive Director of OSSIWA writes about her unbelievable journey contesting for elections as a woman in Nigeria. Osori gives a much-needed first-hand account of Nigerian politics, from an unapologetically feminist perspective.

The event was well covered by regional media outlets. Ouest TV did a great report on the event:
