AFRICAN EXAMPLES

Dr Tom Namwambah
Philosopher, philanthropist and researcher

Award winning philosopher, Dr Tom Namwambah, becomes the only scholar from Africa to sit on an 11-member research team that seeks to restore the continent’s lost cultural identity, writes Wellington Nyongesa.
Africa has always been accused of losing its identity and taking on what is foreign.
However, a team of experts is now working at changing and giving the continent a face.

Dr Tom Namwambah
Kenyatta University lecturer, Dr Tom Namwambah, becomes the only scholar from Africa to sit on the 11-member research team (LITPOST) that is looking at the loss of cultural values by Africans.
The team, made up of researchers of international repute from universities in France, Spain, Sweden and Germany, is led by Prof Felicity Hand of the University of Barcelona in Spain.
Their work is being funded by the Spanish Ministry of Education and Science. They are tasked to research on five Francophone and five Anglophone countries within three years.
"Whether politically, economically or even socially, Africa has no standing. All our ways are the ways of Europe. We want to give faceless Africa a face," Namwambah says.
He adds: "Africans are alienated from themselves where their language, religion, food and music are all things from the past." 

Top Kenyan scholar a sage

Story by JOSEPH NGUNJIRI

Publication Date: 1/22/2006

Talk of a philosopher and what immediately comes to mind is some eccentric character who takes an out-of-this-world pleasure in matters of wisdom and abstract ideas. Dr Tom Namwambah, a young Kenyan university lecturer, even in his favourite portrait  a priest-like attire and a well-trimmed beard  on his published works does not quite strike you as the traditional sage.
On the day of the interview, we found Namwambah in his office at Kenyatta University, dressed in a flowing purple West African Agbada, complete with a cap, which gave him the look of anything between a politician and a village elder. But it was not long before his thoughts gave him away.
Asked about his preferred priestly image, his answer was typically philosophical: "I believe in God but I'm not notoriously religious."
At just 43, Namwambah was recently recognised by the International Biographical
Centre (IBC), based in Cambridge, England, as being among the leading philosophers of the world.
The organisation honours individuals who have made significant contributions in their professional fields. In his letter to Namwamba, Nicholas S. Law, the director-general of IBC, said: "You are one of these contributors to excellence. You have, through your constant efforts, maintained a standard worth rewarding.
Therefore, as a noted and eminent professional in the field of philosophy you have now been considered and nominated for recognition by the IBC."
