I developed a deep personal interest in human rights when I spent 15 months in detention without charge or trial on suspicion that I was part of a group of undergraduates who had formed an underground political party when Malawi was officially a one-party state. I am the current head of the Law Department of the University of Malawi and also teach constitutional law and jurisprudence. I have participated in human rights investigations in Kenya, Malawi and Sierra Leone.’ Edge has tutored the course on Investigating, monitoring and reporting human rights violations on two earlier occasions."
