Another Banana Republic is an autobiography, not fiction, but a true life account of Edgar Bagayana of the 3B Series fame, author of Another Bogus Marriage. After school, he joined Grindlays Bank [now Stanbic Bank Uganda Ltd.] in 1972 at a clerical level and rose through the ranks to become a senior manager, eleven years later, before opting for voluntary early retirement in 1997. Later, in 2003, as Associate Consultant, his contract to train M/s. Crane Bank members of staff was sabotaged and cancelled prematurely. As manager of a remote village bank [2003-2008], he raised standards. He stepped on people's toes. He was overthrown and languished in police cells for four days. No matter how one 'measures' the author's life, the unfortunate outcome has always been hard work that is not recognised and rewarded accordingly here on earth, as outlined in Another Banana Republic!
Capacity of public sector staff in developing countries is crucial for achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Literature from developed countries shows that higher education institutions (HEIs) play an important role in accelerating human resources development for industries, through continuous professional development. This book reports on research carried out to examine drivers and barriers of collaboration between the water/sanitation (WATSAN) public sector and HEIs in developing countries, using Uganda as a case study. Interviews were conducted in 2006 with 13 senior professionals from 10 water/sanitation sector institutions, and 12 senior academics from various departments in 4 HEIs. Results showed that most existing collaborations were initiated by individuals, were informal, weak and ad hoc. Yet, all the stakeholders interviewed perceived industry- HEI collaboration to be an important factor for the attainment of their common long-term goal: enhancing the welfare of society. Policy makers and managers need to make deliberate efforts to put in place mechanisms and incentives that will foster organisation-wide collaborations.
This is an evaluation of Religious Education in England, Christian Religious Education in Uganda at Key stages 3 and 4 and senior 3 and 4 respectively, and Moral Education. It evaluates Religious Education syllabus in relation to Moral Education discourse and attempts to identify the teaching of morals in Religious Education course as well as examine whether moral Education can be separated from religious belief. The evaluation concludes with the observation that moral education has not been adequately provided for in Religious Education especially in Christian Religious Education but notes that at the same time Religious Education cannot be dispensed with in the face of Moral Education. It suggests that there be cooperative participation in moral teaching in a way that where religion is dominant, it incorporates moral teaching adequately but where religion is not a matter of concern, moral education be thought of as essential. Where the two can work together, it becomes a matter of mutual understanding of the implementers of both religious education and moral education.
