Musiitwa’s law firm represents investors in Africa as well as governments, but she increasingly finds herself engaged as another kind of advocate. “I want to shift from deal making to mind shifting,” Musiitwa says. “Legal reform is intertwined with inclusive and sustainable development.” Musiitwa’s focus is now on the importance of good governance and rule of law, and on improving Africa’s standing in the world. Musiitwa has served as an advisor to the director general of the World Trade Organization on trade policy as well as to the Rwandan Justice Ministry on investment, trade and infrastructure and private sector development. She was an Archbishop Desmond Tutu Fellow, Mo Ibrahim Fellow and a Young Global Leader of the World Economic Forum.
