unnamed 1“We must be the change we want to be.” These were the words of Prof. George Ivo Ekosse quoting Mahatma Gandhi during a public lecture titled, Leading and Managing Research in an African Institution, which was held at the Masinde Muliro University of Science on Tuesday, 9th May, 2017.

Prof. Ekosse emphasized on the need for the University to continue embracing cutting-edge research by focusing on specific research niche areas and research innovation policies. He urged the research scholars to increase the number of research publications and the number of active rated researchers, maximize the use of research grants and be active participants in research activities both nationally and internationally.

The lecture by Prof Ekosse also addressed good leadership. He noted that a good leader is hardworking, persistent, has great expectations, associates with those who win, never gives up, remains focused, manages time effectively and dwells on strengths. “Be timeless leaders of research and innovation. Leaders continue to increase in intelligence, knowledge, wisdom and revelation. They face challenges to victory and make masters out of apprentices,” Prof Ekosse said while concluding his talk.

The MMUST scholars represented by Prof John Shiundu, Prof Elizabeth Abenga, Prof. Judith Achoka, Prof Vincent Omollo, Prof Silvery Oteng’i and Prof Wamocho, thanked the Professor from the University of Venda for his wise and inspirational advice. Participants promised that the MMUST scholars will continue shinning in research.
