The African continent is endowed with immense natural resources. Between 2002 and 2012, oil, metals and other mineral exports accounted for more than two-third of export growth in Africa; crude oil alone accounted for more than 50 per cent of Africa’s merchandise exports in 2012. Despite increase in the share of exports in the world market, the contribution the world’s trade remains at 2.6 per cent of total world share.


This shows that Africa in integrated wrongly in the global value chain as a supplier of raw materials to the developed countries. Indeed, Africa’s labour force added 91 million people but only 37 million jobs were created in wage earnings over the past 10 years. Almost one half of Africans (48 per cent) are in extreme poverty2; almost three quarters of the youth population is poor, as 72 per cent of them live on less than 2 dollars a day; the percentage of working people is very high at 46.5 per cent3.

On December 5 2014, the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) was forced to drop charges against Kenyan president Uhuru Kenyatta. This decision followed several actions by the Kenyan government to undermine efforts, including those by the ICC, to ensure accountability for victims of murder, rape, displacement and police brutality committed during the Post-Elections Violence that followed the country’s 2007 elections.

As explained in the seven points below, the actions by the Kenyan government were calculated, deliberately designed and implemented to see the ICC fail.

Fact-finding and report writing are essential to human rights
monitoring. Here, we will provide guidelines for fact-finding missions (FFM or mission) aimed at improving the accuracy, objectivity and transparency of these missions. By adopting these guidelines, we intend to make the allegations, observations and conclusions of FFMs reasonably reliable and thus enhance the efficacy and
credibility of work. While your community based organisation (CBO) or NGO’s independence and integrity must be respected in the course of its FFMs, these missions must nevertheless be, and be seen to be, conducted in a bona-fide manner. Reports must be clearly objective and properly sourced and the conclusions therein reached in a transparent manner.
