Athaliah Molokomme appointed as permanent representative of Botswana to UN office at Geneva

Justice Leader Athaliah Molokomme, former Attorney General (AG) of Botswana from 2005-2016, started her new position as Permanent Representative of Botswana to the United Nations Office at Geneva, leaving behind a stronger and fairer judiciary in Botswana.

During Molokomme’s 11 years’ mandate as AG, she has been the principal legal advisor to the government, advised the Head of State, was an ex officio member of the Cabinet and served on a number of high-level committees such as the Central Intelligence Committee, the Defence Council, the Judicial Services Commission and the Cabinet Business Committee. With her groundbreaking leadership as AG, she established several important contributions to Botswana’s justice sector.

The Justice Leadership Group congratulates Molokomme with her new appointment. We are convinced that with her broad experience, inspiring leadership and vital advocacy, she will continue to strengthen the rule of law, peace and justice at the international level.
