Kennedy is also a rapporteur for Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (Uganda & South Sudan), and a fellow at the John Sentamu Institute for Human Rights at Uganda Christian University. Kennedy secured national awards for Legal Hub Uganda with the “Legal Podcast” innovation which has been a game-changer in fighting ignorance of the law and promoting human right awareness in Uganda. In October 2020, Kennedy as the lead innovator for Legal Hub Uganda won the Legal Aid Innovations Challenge 2020 for having the best solution in promoting access to justice, a precious accolade awarded by the Chief Justice of Uganda. Kennedy is a candidate for LL.M Human Rights & Democratization in Africa (HRDA) at University of Pretoria; he expects to understand human rights and democracy from the African perspective and gain skills that would propel him to a world-class human right practitioner. He expects to write papers, dissertation, participate in moots and debates addressing problems during the course. Kennedy hopes to share his experiences on human rights and democracy from Uganda with the class and his immediate ambition on completion of the programme is to strengthen skills and competencies of the people on human right understanding in Uganda by setting up a community-based Human Rights Organisation and Innovation Hub that will groom sustainable trainer-of-trainers and innovators in the promotion of human rights awareness, child and women protection.
