  1. Tholani,
    I love your blog. I need to explore how I can bring my thesis to the attention of groups in Africa who wish to benefit from it – but in a sense as i start to think about this, I am not sure what it is that will be of value – therefore maybe I need to understand if there is a particular University I could approach in Africa – I presented some years ago in Dakar and was well received so I suppose this is a logical starting point. Perhaps also it is important you can give some time to reading it (link provided below to share as you feel fit) so you can advise me in relation to moving forward.

    Kind regards and thanks for your time.
