Students challenged to engage in research

Students have been challenged to engage in meaningful research activities geared towards addressing some of the challenges facing the continent in this century. This was said Deputy Ambassador of Japan to Kenya, H.E. Yoichiro Yamada, when students from University of Nairobi Political Science Students' Association (NUPOSA) paid a courtesy visit to the Japanese Embassy.

The Deputy Ambassador noted that younger generation lacked interest in research studies, terming it as a reserve for their predecessors. He said that this was a dangerous trend that needed to be addressed, calling upon established researchers to mentor students.

During the interactive visit, the political science students learnt about the ongoing projects by Japan in Kenya and the southern countries. Issues of global peace, security and corporation by Japan globally, the history of Japan including the Hiroshima and Nagasaki incidents were also discussed. In matters education, the members of staff from the Embassy shared with the students, the different scholarship and career opportunities in various fields that Japan has to offer.

The students were accompanied by their lecturer, Dr. George Katete.

The Native Son: Experiences of a Kenyan Entrepreneur

The Native Son: Experiences of a Kenyan Entrepreneur is a celebration of the spirit of free enterprise; an insight into the policies and philosophies that drive business, trade, industry, and enterprise in local and global economies. The memoirs give testimony to the extent to which Dr Joseph Barrage Wanjui’s life in the corporate world is intertwined with Kenya’s economic path since independence. In the book, he speaks up for the best of what multinational corporations have to offer and revels in the joys of fatherhood.

The book is a riveting read. All generations will be provoked and stimulated by Dr Wanjui’s narrative written in easy to read language. Contemporaries will retrace their own lives as they walk with him through colonialism to independence; from the nation-building years of Kenyatta through the challenges of the Nyayo Era to the eventual rebuilding of the country’s hopes under President Mwai Kibaki. In the academia, the work is relevant to scholars in business studies, political science, history, education, and literature.
