Ombudsman briefs Ministers on NHRAP

The Office of the Ombudsman being the custodian of the implementation of the National Human Rights Action Plan (NHRAP),which was officially launched in November 2014 , needs to design further activities aimed at supporting lead and supporting ministries to translate the 1st NHRAP into actions to be championed in year two. Review meetings were held in January 2016.

For the continued successful implementation of this plan, concerted effort is expected and needed from lead and supporting ministries responsible for the right themes prioritized in the human rights action plan.

It is against this background, that the Ombudsman hosted a briefing breakfast with Ministers to bring them up to date on the status of the implementation of the plan. At the meeting, stakeholders informed the Ombudsman about their concerns and envisaged activities of their respective offices.
