Some projects on which she played a significant role include the design and implementation of the Citizen Based Monitoring (CBM) in the presidency of South Africa, the establishment of PuoMandla, a web-based platform facilitating citizen feedback to government and development organisations alike, and the management of the “Follow the Law” project linking with NetDem in the Netherlands and CEWIT in Uganda (CBM) pilot project for the Department of Planning, Monitoring, and Evaluation (the DPME) at the Presidency.

This love has allowed her to investigate people and write their stories, a passion that ACE not only gives space to but uses to support its growth as an organisation.
