2nd Board Meeting of the Center For Strategic Litigation

The Second Board Meeting of the Center for Strategic Litigation (CSL) preceded the official launch ceremony of the Organization. The meeting was conducted at the Dar es Salaam Serena Hotel on the 28th February, 2019 with 5 of the 6 members of the Board in attendance during this meeting.

This meeting was particularly important in setting the scene for the operationalization of the CSL vision. The board reviewed and approved the CSL Theory of Change and made several recommendations for improving the underlying assumptions and priorities. The board provided guidelines on how to progress and finalize the strategy development process and requested the management to report back.

 Equally important during this meeting was the appointment of the CLS’s first Chief Executive Officer and Board Chairs. Mr. Deus Valentine Rweyemamu was appointed CEO and Secretary to the board. On the other hand, the board elected to have a troika approach to its leadership by appointed three Co-chairs. Ms. Fatma Karume, Ms. Rebecca Gyumi and Mr. Jenerali Ulimwengu were elected as Co-chairs to the board. This decision was made to allow the co-chairs to share the weight of responsibility among them given their already demanding schedules. The three co-chairs are expected to provide much needed guidance in the numerous priorities ahead for the CSL.

The Board meeting also approved a number of crucial guidelines and policies for the Organization including the Strategic Plan, the Finance and the Human Resources Manual.
