Today we were enlightened and inspired by many people while we visited the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda, which was established by the United Nations in 1994. The Tribunal was made in Arusha to keep the distance, witnesses safe and to keep things separated. We talked to many people, most are lawyers but there was also a social scientist. The people included Douglas Hansen, a Legal Officer, Thembile Segoete from the Appeals Counsel, Samuel Akorimo the Officer in Charge of Registry and Sera Attika the Head of the Witness Support and Protection Unit.  We learned a lot and was ecstatic to be sitting in the seats of important people. We also had our first experience at a Masai market.
