Dr. Tom Odhiambo
Resident Researcher
PhD at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa

Dr. Tom Odhiambo was awarded a PhD at the University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa in 2004. He then worked as a Research Officer at the Witwatersrand Institute for Social and Economic Research and also taught in the Department of African Literature at Wits University between 2004 and 2007. He has researched, written and published on African literature, culture and media.

 

His interest in the subject of governance is informed by a deep concern about African governments and public institutions seeming inability to lift millions of their citizens from poverty, hunger, illness and disease, the very elements that independent era leaders of the 1960s promised to eradicate. Odhiambo has taught communication, media, development studies and literature. He brings to the Governance Centre a strong conviction that an interdisciplinary approach to governance issues in Kenya and Africa  may probably be the best way to address this seemingly intractable subject.
