UFS reaches out to universities in Africa

Staff from the University of the Free State's (UFS) Programme for Africa Studies visited the Institute for Africa Studies at the University of Nairobi in Kenia and the Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda to explore the possibility of closer ties between the Programme and these institutions. The exchange of operational information about the institutions in an effort to view the tertiary environments of South Africa, Kenia and Uganda in perspective, was also discussed. During the visit to the University of Nairobi were, from the left: Prof Isaac Nyamongo (Director of the Institute for Africa Studies at the University of Nairobi), Prof Isaac Meroka Mbeche (Head of the College of Human and Social Sciences at the University of Nairobi) and Prof Philip Nel (Director of the Programme for Africa Studies at the UFS).
