I have to confess that I was rather surprised to have been asked to give the inaugural Gladys Wambuzi Memorial Lecture. I am not really an educationist, although being at the Law School the education of young and aspiring lawyers is my daily bread and butter; so maybe I‟m an educationist by default or by accident; certainly not by design. Nor am I a child psychologist in order to provide you with some deeper insights into the complex workings of the human mind, which dictate how one ends up in life. Moreover, I am more used to giving lectures on Law and Politics, and on the face of it, the topic of today‟s talk appears to be quite far from either. Finally, I cannot say that Mrs. Wambuzi was my contemporary to warrant such a weighty honour. At best, I can only claim to have known "Auntie Gladys‟ by osmosis and by history.
