The Mission was led by Hon. Grace Malera, Ombudsman of the Republic of Malawi, and comprised of Hon. Antonia Ara├║jo, Ombudsman of Angola, Hon. Pascal Essou, Ombudsman of Benin, Hon. Rtd. Judge Mathew Mwaimu, Chairperson of the Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG) of Tanzania and staff of the AOMA secretariat. These teams were supported by staff of the Office of the Ombudsman of Kenya who also played a complementary role to the teams by serving as long term observers.
