Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2017 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: Development from below and from above in Africa

 

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) and AIDAL, Multimedia University of Kenya

 

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. In Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will bring together scholars from all over the world to make presentations on matters that touch on Africa. Submission of abstracts: Send abstracts of between 250 and 500 words, including full contact details (title, name, address, email-address, and telephone) as well as institutional affiliation by March 30, 2018 to Prof. Maurice N. Amutabi at africanstudiesassociaiton@gmail.com or mauriceamutabi@gmail.com or neddylinnet@gmail.com or Amutabi@yahoo.com or Amutabi@gmail.com

 

The deadline for submission of full papers or PowerPoint presentation is May 30, 2018. Most papers presented at the conference will be selected and published in edited volumes and journals affiliated to African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA). The official language of the conference is English. The conference will consist of ten colloquia organized along themes.

Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2017 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: Development from below and from above in Africa

 

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) and AIDAL, Multimedia University of Kenya

 

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. In Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will bring together scholars from all over the world to make presentations on matters that touch on Africa.

Amutabi at africanstudiesassociaiton@gmail.com or mauriceamutabi@gmail.com or neddylinnet@gmail.com or Amutabi@yahoo.com or Amutabi@gmail.com

 

The deadline for submission of full papers or PowerPoint presentation is May 30, 2018. Most papers presented at the conference will be selected and published in edited volumes and journals affiliated to African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA).

Draft Conference program for June 27-30 2017 conference in Nairobi


Welcome to the 7th Annual AISA International Interdisciplinary Conference, Nairobi, Kenya

 

By Prof. Maurice N. Amutabi

President, AISA

Vice President, KESSA

Co-convener

 

A huge conference such as this can only succeed through debts to various stakeholders. I would like to applaud the devoted team of AISA who have gone through almost 500 abstracts and prepared the program and sent out invitation letters to over 1000 participants. I cannot thank them enough! Having said that, let me take this earliest opportunity to welcome all of you to the 7th Annual AISA International Interdisciplinary Conference in June. We feel very privileged to host this conference with the Multimedia University of Kenya, for the second time. We are grateful for the support we have received from the Catholic University of Eastern Africa which hosted the first two conferences in this series. I would like to thank Prof. (Eng) Abel N. Mayaka who is the co-convener for this conference for commitment and determination to ensure that this conference is a success.  Prof. Mayaka has received many calls from all over the world and the man is patient and diplomatic.

 

I would like to applaud the growing diversity in the delegates who are attending our conferences. This year’s conference has attracted delegates from 24 countries. We have received the highest number of abstracts from Kenya, Nigeria, Uganda, Zimbabwe and South Africa. Other countries that have done well include Tanzania and Zambia. We have also received abstracts from Namibia, Botswana, Malawi, Algeria, Ethiopia, Cameroon, USA, UK, Germany, Canada, Czech Republic, India, Ghana, DRC Congo, Australia, Sweden, among others. Last year we received abstracts from 22 countries, this year we have received from over 25 countries. We are growing in stature as a renowned annual conference and this is impressive and we hope to continue to attract more scholars from all countries of the world.

 

There is a story told by the Luhya people of Western Kenya about elephant and monkey, usually narrated to children to encourage them to explore their talents and also not seek the easy way out all the time. I would like to use it to illustrate the need to engage as scholars. One day, monkey invited elephant to a wrestling match but on condition that they wrestle using their tails only. Elephant wanted to use his trunk and legs for which he had advantage but monkey wanted to use his tail, where he had advantage. The wrestling match did not take place because the two animals could not agree on rules of engagement. The world could not know whether elephant or monkey was a better wrestler. The world never came to learn if any of them had wrestling tactics at all. At this conference, we would like scholars to engage and feel free to share their strengths and weaknesses in order to develop new knowledge. They should wrestle with all their strengths and bring on board all their abilities. We would like to see intellectual dialogue and knowledge sharing in which people do not keep to what they know best but learn from others. We must allow engagement and free sharing of views without fear so that we do not repeat what elephant and money did.

 

Our conference has become one of the major academic events in Africa to the extent that we are asked by everyone we meet when the next conference will take place, not if it will take place. That is why we always release the theme for the next conference during our conferences so as not to leave that gap for questions. The success of AISA conferences has come as a result of our publication of the papers presented at the conference after a rigorous peer review process. Most conferences do not publish proceedings, while others do not encourage positive dialogue and networks among scholars. We are happy at AISA to see the growth of many networks coming from our conferences. We have witnessed promotions based on our publications, helping to produce full professors, associate professors, senior lecturers and lecturers.

 

We are impressed about the 2017 conference because it has attracted one of the highest numbers of delegates that we have hosted in the recent past.  Of course 2012 still remains the highest attendance when we hosted about 1200 delegates at the Catholic University of Eastern Africa, Nairobi.  I am particularly impressed by the number of senior and young scholars from different parts of the world who will be attending this conference. I am also impressed by the fact that there are many papers which are co-authored between senior and junior scholars. This is as it should be because the purpose of the founding of AISA was to promote intergenerational dialogue and cooperation. Some of the presenters will be doing so for the first time, while others are doing it for the second or third time. There are also veterans some of whom will be coming to this conference for the fifth, sixth or seventh time and will find time to mention some of them.

 

In 1989, I attended one of the most successful conferences organized by the Kenya-American Studies group held at the then Jacaranda Hotel, Nairobi at which I presented a paper. i was a graduate student pursuing masters degree at the University of Nairobi and was easily frightened by professors whom at the time though knew everything.  The conference was an eye opener in many ways. It took away academic butterflies from my stomach, forever. I also realised that professors are human and also make mistakes. I also realized that some professors were friendly while others were out rightly hostile. I was impressed by professor who started by telling young scholars the good things they had seen in their papers, before going to however……. I also learnt that one does not have to agree with all the comments they receive at a conference but are at liberty to use those they feel can add value. I also learnt that it is nice to be polite and promise to use comments to improve your paper.

 

In 2001, at Austin Texans, I attended the first conference organized by Toyin Falola at the University of Texas, Austin together with who is who at the time in African studies. I met academic heavyweights such as Toyin Falola the host, Thomas Spear, E.S. Atieno-Odhiambo, Nedd Aplers and many others. There were many gaps in African studies whose surface we have not even started to scratch. In 2002 at Stanford University at Palo Alto, California I attended a conference organized by Benjamin Lawrence and Richard L. Roberts which was about courts in colonial Africa and also gathered that there was a lot that took place in many spaces in Africa which undermined the agency, voice and space for Africans.

 

We dedicated three sessions of this conference to three late professors – Prof. Ali A. Mazrui, Prof. William Robert Ochieng and Prof. Joshua Akong’a. I interacted with the three professors, somehow differently and they all had influence on me.  Mazrui was the mega scholar, whom all of us tried to imitate and copy. Ochieng assisted me to horn my skills as a pubic intellectual, debating in national newspapers, doing everything to bash this upcoming intellectual. Akong’a was my senior colleague at Moi University and among few voices that prevailed upon status quo professors to elevate us to the next level. The three scholars deserve honourable mention for the role they played differently in the growth of African scholarship.

 

I first met Prof. Ali A. Mazrui through his writings in the newspapers in the 1980s by met physically by chance in 1986 when I was a student at the University of Nairobi and subsequently met him more frequently in the US when I went there to study and work. I took many pictures with him and which I have placed strategically in my offices, houses and websites. Mazrui proved to be a real mentor. i met Prof. William  R. Ochieng through his writings but met him physically in 1992 when I joined Moi University as a lecturer. he was the principal of Maseno University College, then constituent college of Moi University and found him very intelligent but also arrogant. Mixing the two can be interesting and also controversial and that is how Ochieng was. I was the last intellectual to debate him before he died and some mobs threatened to lynch me if I attended his burial but sanity prevailed and no such thing happened. Joshua Akong’a was supposed to be the first principal of Maseno University College but declined to go for the interview and Musician Prof. Omondi received the job on a silver platter before handing over to Prof. Ochieng.

 

Each time I convene this conference; I meet new friends and receive a lot of accolades on how I have shaped the life of one scholar or another.  I started convening the conferences as a relatively young professor in my 40s and have grown with the conference, from Director, to DVC and VC and feel that the conference has contributed to my personal growth as well. I have also realised that I am beginning to talk about the 1980s and 1990s and everyone gathers around to listen, the way we did to Prof. Bethuel Allan Ogot and Prof. William Ochieng when they talked about the 1960s and 1970s. The urgency to produce the next line of scholars is beckoning. I am increasingly hearing and reading……”according to Prof. Maurice Amutabi….” and feel very proud of AISA for making this possible. it has allowed to mentor many scholars who are the foundation on which future scholarship in Africa and the world will be built upon.

 

At AISA we are aware of the “publish or perish” call and are working to ensure that no member of AISA fraternity perishes for lack of publications. we have allocated senior scholars as peer reviewers who work with younger and junior scholars to ensure that their papers attain publishable standards. Five books have been produced from the papers presented at this conference. Last year we produced three volumes. We will continue to publish younger scholars in order to assist in their growth. We are delighted that many book sellers and libraries are ordering our books. The conference continues to grow and we hope to serve our membership better.

 

The theme for next year’s conference is “Development from below and from above in Africa: way forward” in which the interest is to find out which models of development in Africa are working and which ones have failed, fifty years after independence. There have been competing  models and discourses on top down and bottom up development approaches from within and outside and whose performance have been subject of a lot of research in the research past. it is time to come to consensus and create and inventory on what has worked and what has not worked so that the continent does not continue to grapple in the dark as to which model works better.

 

The AISA Secretariat let by Dr. Linnet Hamasi, continues to shine and amaze because they handle high volume of e-mails and correspondence but never seem to tire and complain. They are becoming household names in Africa and the world and we are proud of them. They are always up and working and eating and drinking conference. they receive calls at night and get all manner of demands but have remained diligent. Many of them are becoming accomplished presenters and publishers in their own right, living to the adage that you cannot be in the kitchen and fail to eat. I have seen them grow and give the conference life and structures. They have become very professional and respond to emails promptly.

 

Asante sana (thank you very much)

Call for Papers for the 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 27 to 30, 2017 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: Development from below and from above in Africa

 

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) and AIDAL, Multimedia University of Kenya

 

Africa has been willing and unwilling recipient of many models of development, some of which have been top down while others have been bottom up. Many of these models have been developed outside Africa while others have been generated largely from within the continent. Fifty years after independence, there are many countries in Africa which are still struggling to find which models are suitable to their development needs. They are still looking for way forward in terms of which development models work better. There is an emergence of development models that are hybrids of bottom up and top down in which there is a middle ground. In Kenya for example, the creation of the devolved units at County level is seen as a middle ground, the same to states in Nigeria and some regions in South Africa. The tensions between devolved units and national or federal governments in Africa suggest that hybrids have their own challenges as well. Julius Nyerere’s Ujamaa and Jomo Kenyatta’s Harambee have often been seen as development models from above while others see them as having grassroots origins. What are some of the top down or bottom up development models that have worked successfully in Africa? To what extent are these development models internal or external? How can we determine success of a development model? What are the parameters and characteristics that one needs to look for, to determine success or failure of a development model? What is the way forward? These are some of the questions that the conference organizers hope will be answered by participants.

 

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), this 8th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 27 to 30, 2018 at Nairobi, Kenya.

Call for Papers for the 7th International Interdisciplinary Conference, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 28 to 30, 2017 at Multimedia University of Kenya

 

General conference theme: “Africa at Development Crossroads”

Conference Venue: Multimedia University of Kenya, Nairobi, Kenya

 

Sponsors: African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) and AIDAL

After the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and various strategies under NEPAD and various national development plans, Africa is still at development crossroads. Africa has been at the centre of many and sometimes competing and experimental development paradigms, both from within and outside. African countries are not sure if they need to borrow models from the West or East. Democratic revival has created some hope in some African countries. Despite this hope, many African societies are still gripped in gender, patriarchal and regional tensions. Women, youth, children and minority groups have been marginalized in some countries. Paper presenters will be expected to look from within in order to interrogate the success and some of the challenges these development paradigms have faced in light of external influences. Some governments have created inclusive constitutions that incorporate gender mainstreaming. Researchers are expected to critically examine models and approaches presented for development in health, education, tourism, mining, agriculture, water, livestock development, roads, railway and air transport, development of arid and semi arid lands, science and technology, engineering, environment, urban and rural development, vulnerable groups, minorities, women and children. How sound are development plans developed by African governments? In what ways have they been successful? Whose development and in whose interest?  How should development in Africa proceed? Who should be involved in Africa’s development and why? Are Africa’s development partners genuine? What projects should Africa pursue? These are the type of questions that participants are invited to explore.

 

Organized and hosted by African Interdisciplinary Studies Association (AISA), this 7th International Interdisciplinary Conference will be held on June 28 to 30, 2017 at Nairobi, Kenya. The conference will bring together scholars from all over the world to make presentations on matters that touch on Africa. Submission of abstracts: Send abstracts of between 250 and 500 words, including full contact details (title, name, address, email-address, and telephone) as well as institutional affiliation by March 30, 2017 to Prof. Maurice N.

Leasing BVR kits and election materials the easiest way forward for IEBC

Leasing BVR kits and election materials the easiest way forward for IEBC

 By Maurice N. Amutabi

 The 2.5 billion shillings that has been allocated by the Government to secure electronic voting kits for IEBC has turned out to be the main attraction for brokers and suppliers more than the actual job the equipment needs to perform. IEBC officials appear to be under siege, from left, right and centre. It has become patently clear that interests, tender brokers, power barons, economic Mafiosi, activists, court battles and political rivalry will not allow IEBC to run credible elections unless it acts fast and swiftly, outside of these groups. IEBC has to do something different from what we have seen during every election cycle when equipment is secured late due to jostling for tenders by the country’s financial Mafiosi.

By now I am sure IEBC chairman Wafula Chebukati and his team are aware that time has run out on them on the tender issues. Tendering for new equipment is now almost out of the question if timelines and schedules are to be followed by IEBC and if elections are to be conducted on August 8 2017. The court battles have just started and brokers have their antennas raised up and will rush to court as soon they learn that their person has been left out of the IEBC lucrative tenders. The only possibility for IEBC is to engage in bilateral negotiations with countries which have just conducted elections using digital and electronic system and lease their equipment for six months, and return it after elections. Only in this way will IEBC lock out the brokers who are salivating for tenders.

The problem of IEBC has been compounded by the request by Jubilee and other parties to assist it conduct their primaries. IEBC lacks capacity to conduct primaries for parties. IEBC is struggling to put things in order for the general election and can only conduct elections for parties by outsourcing the task to election consultancies and experts.  A December 2016 status report on Kenya’s 2017 elections by the Centre for Democracy, Research and Development (CEDRED) identified three possibilities for IEBC if it has to succeed in conducting successful elections in 2017.

The first possibility was probable if IEBC secured election equipment by January 2017 to allow for adequate training and mastering of the equipment, as well as movement to constituencies for testing. The second scenario was to lease equipment by February from a country where elections were conducted electronically and train IEBC officials on how to handle during election, giving enough time for mock runs and reruns and testing data backup. The third alternative was that if by March no equipment had been sourced, IEBC should lease equipment and some technical staff from a another country where electronic equipment has been used and through a bi-partisan proposal present it to Parliamentary Committee on elections for approval. This would avoid the wrangles over tenders. Where we are  now, five months before elections, it is this third scenario that obtains now for IEBC.

There are five countries (Canada, India, South Africa, Ghana and Israel) which have secure and tested BVR kids and election materials that can be leased by the IEBC for six months to ensure that it conducts credible and transparent elections. The five countries are friendly and would be willing to give the equipment under negotiated plans in order for IEBC to conduct successful elections in Kenya on August 8, 2017. CEDRED has established that if it borrowed from India, Kenya will need equipment from only one state in India such as Punjab and will need just three weeks to move the equipment from Mumbai to Mombasa and another one week to distribute to all constituencies. It will need about 47 technicians from India, one in each county to ensure training of staff and provide direction and avoid equipment tampering.

CEDRED established that equipment from Punjab alone would be enough because it has 23,000 BVR kits and Kenya needs about 19,000, plus backup or spare equipment in case of replacements. Kenya would therefore require maximum of 20,000 kits. When the rates are clear like this, it worries brokers and bribe takers. The problem to them is that there will be no bribery or kickbacks for this arrangement because the rate of hiring BVR equipment from India is known, because they are often hired out to institutions such as universities and cooperatives to conduct elections.  Kenya will hire them under the same terms.

Kenya will need about 20 containers to ship equipment to Mombasa, with each container taking about 1,000 kits. To ship a container from Mumbai to Mombasa will cost about US$1,000 (about 100,000 shillings) each. This will translate to about 2 million shillings. There will be no duty or clearance fee charged at the port because this will be government to government arrangement.

India has rates for personnel per day, when travelling abroad so it will be very hard for official to inflate the figures as is often the case. Each BVR kit and supporting balloting equipment is hired for 50 rupees per day (about 100 shillings). This would translate to 100 shillings X 6 months (6X30 days) = 18,000. Since Kenya needs about 20,000 gadgets, this will be 18,000 X 20,000 = 360,000,000. This amount falls far below the 2.5 billion allocated for equipment by the government.

The technical team from India will be paid their international rate of allowances which is US50 (5000 Kenya shillings) per day. This would translate to 5000 shillings X 47 officials X 180 days) = 42,300,000. The total expenditure on this will be 402,300,000. The other major expense will be transportation of the equipment from the port to the polling stations. One may need about 47 vehicles, one for each county, hired at 200,000 each, because they will move between constituency offices. For a County like Nairobi this may be done in one day, but for counties like Marsabit, Turkana, Tana River and Mandera, it may require few days to reach each constituency. This will cost only 9,400,000. The IEBC can use NYS trucks or private transport.

Some countries such as Turkey ad Botswana have leased election equipment from India before and it may be our best bet at this time. Leasing equipment from Canada may cost slightly higher compared to India. South Africa, Ghana and Israel will also be slightly higher than India. Ghana and Israel have slightly small populations and may not have adequate number of kits for the entire electrical process in the country and may meaning additional kits from a second country.

Many Kenyans are hoping that the IEBC chair Mr. Wafula Chebukati will demonstrate that he can act outside interests and lease equipment instead of being manipulated by tender interests. If he goes ahead and leases equipment, he would have succeeded in taking the political and economic Mafiosi from IEBC headquarters, forever. Many Kenyans will support an open, transparent and fair election process regardless of where the equipment comes from.

Universities and counties should not bear tribal names – lessons from US and Nigeria

Universities and counties should not bear tribal names – lessons from US and Nigeria

By Maurice N Amutabi

Universities are public entities and should never bear the name of an ethnic group. Similarly, counties belong to all Kenyans according to Kenya’s constitution and should therefore not bear the name of any single ethnic group, given that no county in Kenya is inhabited by a single ethnicity. All counties in Kenya are inhabited by many ethnic groups although there are those with one or two dominant ethnic groups.  There are many counties in Kenya that bear ethnic names – Kisii, Nandi, Meru, Embu, Taita-Taveta, Turkana, Tharaka-Nithi, Elgeyo-Marakwet, West Pokot and Samburu – that need to be changed.

 

Naming counties after some ethnic groups goes against Kenya’s national constitution which states that all Kenyans are equal and can inhabit any part of the country. If Kenyans are equal then all ethnic groups should not have their names on any county because it isolates others. Why are some ethnic groups allowed to name their counties by their tribes while others are denied the privilege?  This amounts to discrimination based on ethnicity and against the Bill of Rights in our constitution. It is wrong for example to have a county called Samburu when there are other people such as Turkana, Rendile, Borana, Meru and Kikuyu living in that county apart from the Samburu people.

 

Names are very important and people would do anything to retain a name they like. I recall sometimes back when former President Daniel Moi ordered change of names for all sports clubs bearing ethnic names following constant fighting between supporters of Abaluhya Football Club (AFC) and those of Gor Mahia. The leaders of AFC came up with a new name, All Footballers Club (AFC) Leopards in order to retain the initials AFC. Gor Mahia leaders also came up with Golf Olympic Rangers (GOR) in order to retain GOR as the name of their club.

 

We need to rethink the whole notion of naming, because a name is very important. There have been indications that members of ethnic groups whose name counties bear have a sense of entitlement for positions in the county compared to counties where names are neutral and have no ethnic markers. The National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) under chairman Hon. Francis Ole Kaparo should act immediately to order the name changes on our counties with immediate effect. NCIC has capable commissioners such as Prof. Gitile Naituli and Dr. Joseph Wamocha Nasongo who understand the implications of naming and should make sure they change these names. The same should be done for Universities which bear ethnic names for they violate the constitution on bill of rights and need to build an inclusive society. The best would be naming the counties after dominant towns in the counties and which names should not be tribal. Kisii County could be called Manga after Manga Hill, or Suneka or Ogembo or Gesusu or Mosocho or Keumbu County.

 

Taita-Taveta County could be called Wundanyi or Voi or Mwatate County. Turkana could be called Lodwar, Lokichar, Kalokol or Kainuk County. Elgeyo-Marakwet could be called Iten or Tot or Kapsowar County. West Pokot could be called Kapenguria County and Samburu could be called Maralal County.  Change of names will make them neutral places for all Kenyans to settle and not monopoly of some ethnic groups.

 

Nandi County could be called Kapsabet County, or Lelmokwo, or Chepsonoi or Kaiboi, or any other town in the county. Meru County could be called Nkubu County or Ikuu or Kenyakine County. Embu County could be called Runyenjes, Manyatta, Kigari or some other famous market or hill or river in the county. Did we run short of names so as to begin calling counties and universities ethnic names? It is worse for universities which are supposed to universal or global and yet they are associated with some narrow ethnic interests thereby demanding that Vice Chancellors come from the ethnic group for which the university is named after.  Kenya has progressive Cabinet Secretary for Education, Science and Technology who is likely to order for name changes immediately.

 

I was recently in South Africa and met many prominent scholars who kept asking me what we in Kenya were doing to honour great Kenyan scholars such as the late Prof. Ali Mazrui and late Prof. Thomas Odhiambo, yet we continue churning universities with community and ethnic names. Prof. Ali Mazrui was a mega-scholar, a distinguished professor in social sciences, while Prof. Thomas Odhiambo was the founder of the world famous International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (ICIPE at Duduville, Kasarani and ICIPE Field Station at Mbita Point and founder of African Academy of Sciences. They wondered why Universities are being given ethnic names when there is a long list of scholars who could be named after them.

 

There are many universities in Kenya that have ethnic names such as Kisii University, Meru University of Science and Technology, University of Embu, Taita-Taveta University, Chuka University, Maasai Mara University, among others which should be changed. Kisii University could be named after independent hero Otenyo Nyamaterere or Chief Nyanduse or George Moseti Anyona or Andrew Omanga or Zachary Onyonka University or Wilkista Onsando or Nyachae University or a national hero from another part of the country such as Paul Ngei, Robert Matano or Fundi Konde. Meru University could be named Captain Judy Angaine University or Jackson Harvester Angaine University or Prof. J. N. K Mugambi University or a hero from another part of Kenya such as Achieng Oneko or Kungu Karumba.

 

Embu University could be named Jeremiah Nyagah University or Cecily Mbarire University or Prof. Mwaniki University or Prof. John Mwaruvie University or a hero from another part of Kenya such as Julia Ojiambo or Phoebe Asiyo. Taita-Taveta could be named Eliud Mwamunga University or Naomi Shaban University or Mashengu wa Mwachofi University or another hero or heroine such as Prof. Jonathan Ngeno or Oloo Aringo or Daniel Otiende or Martin Shikuku. Chuka University could be named after any of the leading lights born and raised in the county, preferably a woman given that most of our streets and national institutions already have male names.

 

Maasai Mara University could be named Joseph Murumbi University or John Keen University or William Ole Ntimama University or John Konchellah University or Stanley Shapashina Oloitiptip University or Damaris Parsitau University in honour of one of the first Maasai women to receive a PhD or Kajiado East MP, Peris Pesi Tobiko the first Maasai female MP.

 

Kenya already has some universities named after distinguished Kenyans such as Jomo Kenyatta (two universities), Adonija Obadiah Jaramogi Oginga Odinga (one university), Daniel Toroitich arap Moi (two universities), Tom Joseph Mboya (one university and one college), Pius Masinde Muliro (one university), Dedan Kimathi (one university), Koitalel arap Samoei (one university college), Mama Ngina Kenyatta (the new Mama Ngina Kenyatta University College in Kiambu), among others.

 

Many gender scholars concur that it would be great to have some of the universities named after great female heroines such as Mekatilili wa Menza (most famous female resistance heroine), Grace Onyango, (the first female MP in Kenya), Nyiva Mwedwa, (Kenya’s first female cabinet Minister), Grace Ogot (first female assistant minister), Prof. Florida Karani, (first female Deputy Vice Chancellor of a public University in Kenya), Field Marshal Muthoni (the Mau Mau heroine), Lena Moi (Kenya’s second first lady), Lucy Kibaki (Kenya’s third first lady),  Margaret Kenyatta (Kenya’s fourth first lady), Wangari Maathai (Kenya’s first female professor), Charity Kaluki Ngilu (Kenya’s first female presidential candidate), Tecla Lorupe (Kenya’s most famous female athlete), etc

 

The list of heroes and heroines in need of honouring can be long and may include people like Bildad Kaggia, J. M. Kariuki, Joe Kadenge (Kenya’s football legend), Kipchoge Keino (Kenya’s athletic legend), Orie Rogo-Mandulli, General J. K. Mulinge, Tabitha Sei, musician Ochieng Kabaselleh, musician Daudi Kabaka, Prof. B. A. Ogot, Prof. William R. Ochieng’, Prof. Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Ambassador Prof. David Kikaya, Prof. Miriam Were and Prof. Judith Mbula Bahemuka.

 

In the US, the first lesson at state building was to ensure that no state or public institution bore an ethnic name. It was acceptable to name states after individuals given the roles they had played in setting them up. This has ensured that the states remain accessible to all ethnic groups. There were attempts by Irish and German immigrants to name states after their European ethnic identities but this was strongly resisted. In the UK, naming regions after the four ethnic groups – English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh – has created some of the worst nationalist uprisings and xenophobia, in which thousands have been killed. But United Kingdom leant early that universities should not bear ethnic names.

 

In Africa, Nigeria faced the worst form of ethnic violence and war based on ethnicity, and leant its lessons and no university today bears an ethnic name in Nigeria. After Biafra civil war, Nigerians agreed that states and universities should never bear ethnic names. It is perhaps one of the leading countries in the world where universities are named after individuals such as Nnamdi Azikiwe University (Namdi Azikiwe was the first president of Nigeria, from Igbo ethnic group), Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University (Tafawa was the first Prime Minister of Nigeria, from Hausa-Fulani), Chief Obafemi Awolowo University (Awolowo was the first leader of opposition in Nigeria, from Yoruba ethnic group), Adekunle Ajasin University, Afe Babalola University, Ahmadu Bello University, Afe Babalola University, Ajayi Crowther University, Akungba Akoko University, among others.

 

Kenya can borrow from Nigeria (not many countries borrow anything from Nigeria) and de-ethnicise names of counties and universities. This will cultivate a national and positive energy in the country that will promote our counties and universities into global giants. Universities should not be symbols of ethnicity where locals gather for small talk, local gossip and discussion of mundane things such as circumcision, payment of dowry, installation of clan elders, lists of witches, weddings and funeral and burial plans. It is not surprising that universities bearing ethnic names are headed by Vice Chancellors from those communities, which is rather unfortunate.
