(MENAFN- The Conversation) Senior Lecturer & Head of History in the School of Education, University of the Witwatersrand Profile Articles Activity

I am an Africanist scholar who graduated from the former University Natal, Durban (UKZN, Howard College): 1989-1998. BA to MA degrees;
I am also a Pan-Africanist as a result of my PhD degree studies and living with my family in Washington D.C. USA, where I studied at Howard University,2003-2006; and graduated May 2013. My doctoral dissertation is on the subject of Robben Island where I worked as researcher and oral historian: 2000-2003; and the major sources of my dissertation are the +_ 500 interviews of former political prisoners and some few prison warders that I conducted with a team of heritage workers in the three and half years I spent at the Robben Island Museum on Robben Island.

I am a teacher by profession, holds a Higher Diploma in Education (H.D.E.:1994) and believe that teaching is one of the most life-changing career/work. It is not a job, but work. I am saddened by the fact that our education system - Basic Education and Higher Education & Training has not implemented African Languages' Policy in Education, 21 years into our liberation (1994-2014).
