Julieth Gudo


Julieth is a 27-year-old Zimbabwean national studying her Doctorate in Law at the University of Cape Town.

In 2009, she worked and volunteered at the orphanage and women’s shelter in Musina, where she grew up after her arrival in South Africa as a refugee.

Her thesis aims to clarify legal protections for watchdog role of CSOs towards SOE in SA. She wants to generate a focus on closing legal gaps, to ensure better service delivery by government especially to the marginalized, mostly women and children.

Upon completion of her studies, Julieth plans to work with refugees at the South Africa-Zimbabwean border. In her personal capacity, she wants to be involved as a legal counsel, and in collaboration with human rights groups, to ensure justice, and fair government service delivery, especially to vulnerable groups.
