Tribute to Professor Douglas Odhiambo

Tribute to Professor Douglas Odhiambo


Prof Douglas Odhiambo who died last week belonged in the increasingly outnumbered lot of scholars who believe their role in society is to search for, generate and disseminate knowledge until they believe their last.

It is not a surprise that Prof was still studying as he was taken ill never to recover.

In his death, Kenya lost an exceptionally brilliant and serious academic who had much to brag about but chose a humble, behind the scenes life from where he argued for more support for and less interference with our public universities.
