I have been assisting my students to get their PhDs and Masters through practical research methods lessons. Am particularly interested in two research papers. The first one was on government bureaucracy and my interest is in asking whether the old tradional model of government still fits the knowledge society of today. The other one was on Learning Organization and here am interested to know how many in Africa know of this new concept or are still learning and teaching Organizational Learning. Again I sob a lot everytime I see that most of the knowledge I come across is not in the African language-Kiswahili. And wondering about that kind of leaders who expect chicken to come out of nothing or even worse still, out of rotten eggs! I don't shed a tear, though, on the overthrow of the Mauritanian student of democracy for his hasty and misguided decision to sack someone over the radio. That was something possible in the age of communism and ujamaa, not today though!
