    what is he doing in academy of sciences with all those B.A,s to his name??hivi kweli hiyo Academy iko serious au it just another NG'O??
    all i know is a country's academy of science is a scientific, engineering and technological body which brings together committees of experts in all areas of scientific and technological endeavor.
    usualy medicine,engineering,science and technology.
    BUT never Economics or any social experts since i believe that what economics societies or social groups are.

    its ok for a scientist to decide to opt for political or social carreer..like a ubunge au uwaziri hata ukatibu kata!!BUT i believe its suicidal for country's development to have these buddies with NO SCIENTIFIC KNOWLEDGE WHATSOEVER,organising and leading or even participating as fellows of academy of sciences!!

    najua kuna positions au vyeo flani vinavutia kwenye CV's zao lakini this is just TOO MUCH!!

    otherwise congrats MU for getting a nev VC,i hope he will live up to expectations.

    labda walimaanisha social science, maana iko faculty of Arts and Social Science (FASS), ambayo kwa jina lake inaonekana wanaoichukua sio wa pure science but social science one.
