Just a note to point out an inconsistency I have encountered with regards to the last post. Speaking to one of Ezin’s officials after his talk, I was assured that the AU department for science, technology and human resources has quite enough money to carry out their duties, thank you very much!
Still, I queried two of my journalistic colleagues down here, and they confirmed that what I had heard Ezin say during his talk was what they too had heard.
(After Ezin’s talk I spoke to him about what projects were ‘less of a priority’ than the Pan African University and he mentioned teacher training as an example. Which points to there being a problem with funding…)
