Tekayo is going full steam ahead in creating education segregation in Kenya. He has now appointed a bunch of professors to create the National Elite University of Kenya. I knew that these degree bashing stories in @StandardKenya @ntvkenya were hiding something #degreeofdoubt
Last year, the @CUE_Kenya put out a half hearted notice about amendments to the university act which I don't think the public was supposed to see. Unfortunately I did, and I wrote this letter to the commission but they did not reply. #DegreeOfDoubt…
In the letter (available on my blog), I specifically addressed the powers which the president and the cabinet were being given to establish universities on the basis of cabinet memos. I addressed the threat to academic freedom #degreeofdoubt

The role of the government, this Anglo-American contraption which gives us grief, is to contain us so that a few royals who don't work survive on our work. Unless we get this basic reality, we'll continue to tell stories like #DegreeOfDoubt

Some history. First the missionary came to prepare our hearts for capitalism. For them, conversion to Christianity wasn't abandoning African culture. It was entering the capitalist economy as a worker. #degreeofdoubt #maishakazini
Missionaries attacked mostly cultural practices which interfered with Africans working for wazungu. They talked about human rights and whatever, but their evidence of conversion was if you got employment at a mzungu farm and used the money to buy mzungu trinkets. #degreeofdout
