African scholars and intellectuals must also step up to be counted. Why would I as an African professor use professor Cresswell's book to teach research methodology when I am a professor like him? I have been in leadership for a long time, why can't I produce knowledge on leadership without constantly referring to scholars like Maxwell?
Some African scholars are beginning to stand up and produce knowledge that will help our continent. I have just published a book on insights into institutional leadership that was to be launched in the presence of His Excellency the President but unfortunately he was out of the country. The cabinet secretary for public service came in his place and we were honored. I am following that book up with another one next week on functional research methods.
