Get to know me
I was born and raised in the Republic of Uganda. I’m mostly a free thinking and fair-minded person, strong believer in a free and just world, an avid reader (not quite a prolific writer though), a student of African politics (not a politician), a great admirer of the virtue of humility, been around the world quite a bit, etc…
What I do…
I study and teach politics and political development with a focus on contemporary Africa. I got my PhD in Political Science at Northwestern University, Evanston/Chicago-USA.
I’m currently Assistant Professor of Political Science and Africanan Studies at North Carolina State University, Raleigh NC-USA.
I’m a student of politics, not a politician! So, I’ve little interest, if any, in active politics. However, since I was a little boy in secondary school, I’ve always had a keen interest in global current affairs and local sociopolitical developments.
Thus, since April 2013, I’ve been writing a weekly current affairs column, first for The Observer (2013-2019) and currently for Daily Monitor (2018-todate), both based in Kampala, Uganda.
I also co-founded a political think-tank, Society for Justice and National Unity (SoJNU), with senior colleagues at Makerere University, Kampala, which seeks to provide intellectual input to Ugandan politics. In addition to my limited political activism, I also have been actively involved in community engagement as Vice President (2016-2018) and later Interim President (2018-2019) for the North America Masaba Cultural Association and board member of a university/tertiary education scholarship non-profit organization, CROSO.
