we all need to understand that education is a quest to answers to problems. That means that we need to expand, learn what we know and we think are our next problems. Education can also be used as a tool of war, conflict, colonisation. Do you know that Gulu university is a foreign woman university? You might not agree but just think of the very initial such kind of things. When you see them...

I try to be careful talking about this kind of meeting between high profile leaders of similar vision for a country, region or people. It is very rare. This is what I describe as 99% leadership visionaries, 1% different countries, 1% different leading to 101% East African strong and real leadership. This are kind of leaders who will unite, bring East Africa closer and head major bodies like...

Ridle, slang, dilect is way things are Understood in a society. Ridle called cik in Luo is a word less used because of its implications. In the old days, it was about promoting, educating and reinventing culture until becomes a tool of act.
