The Seinoli Legal Centre (SLC) leverages the Rule of Law as a tool for protecting, restoring, and enhancing the sustainable livelihoods of local communities. 



Advocate Reitumetse Nkoti Mabula who holds a Bachelor of Law (LLB) from the Natianal University of Lesotho (NUL), Master of Law ( LLM) from the North West University (NWU), a Postgraduate Diploma in Business Administration from (Wits) became SLC’s Executive Director in October 2018. She manages SLC’s daily operations and oversees the implementation of programs and services offered on behalf of the Centre’s client communities. Under her leadership, SLC has successfully provided support to thousands of people affected by Lesotho Highlands Water Project in Lesotho. The work of the Centre has grown to cover communities affected by other land-based investments and protecting community’s land and resource rights.

Her non-profit career officially started in 2011 when she left the judiciary to join a local NGO, Transformation Resource Centre. That career move led her to Seinoli Legal Centre, a first public interest law Centre in Lesotho which assists vulnerable communities to use the law as a tool for protecting their land and resource rights.

Nkoti has an interest in NGOs and development, specifically the roles that local NGOs can play in promoting civil society and development work and how their capacity can be improved in order to meet challenges in carrying out their diverse mandates.
