Judge Redson Kapindu honored in RSA

Malawi High Court Judge, Redson Kapindu and Namibian Minister of Justice, Yvonne Dausab, are recipients of the 2022 Vera Chirwa Award presented by the Centre for Human Rights, Faculty of Law, University of Pretoria in South Africa.

Kapindu jointly received the award with Dausab in recognition of his work in advancing human rights, especially socio-economic rights and political rights, in Malawi and across the African continent.

The Centre wrote on its website that Kapindu has been involved in many decisions in Malawi with a significant impact on the consolidation of democracy and advancement of human rights in Malawi, citing the case of Saulos Chilima and Lazarus Chakwera versus Peter Mutharika (Constitutional Reference 1 of 2019) [2020] (3 February 2020); in which the High Court declared the 2019-2020 presidential elections invalid.

The Vera Chirwa Award was named after Malawi’s first female lawyer and human rights activist, Vera Chirwa, best known for her fight against authoritarianism and her commitment towards human rights in Malawi.
