Tempora mutantur, nos et mutamur in illis. Indeed, times change and we adapt ourselves to them. CLS is no exception. Professor Al Mtenje who had been at the helm of CLS as Director for twelve years completed his tenure at the end of August 2008. Prof. Mtenje was the founding Director and has left behind a monumentum aere perennius. Prof. Mtenje has since taken a sabbatical leave of which the first three months were spent at Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society (CASAS) in Cape Town. Once his sabbatical is over, he will resume his research and teaching at Chancellor College. We do hope he will continue sharing his experience and expertise gained over the years with us.
To Prof. Mtenje we say: Asante sana, Zikomo kwambiri, Dieu vous garde!
