Welcome... 

My name is Moses Khisa and this is my online home! 

I am Ugandan. Mostly a free thinking and fair-minded person. Strong believer in a free and just world. An avid reader (but not quite a prolific writer). Student of African politics (not a politician though). A great admirer of the virtue of humility. Been around the world quite a bit. Etc...

What I do...

I study and teach politics and political development with a focus on contemporary Africa. I got my PhD in Political Science at Northwestern University, Evanston/Chicago-USA. I'm  currently Assistant Professor of Political Science and Africanan Studies at North Carolina State University, Raleigh NC-USA.

 

I'm a student of politics, not a politician! So, I've little interest, if any, in active politics. However, since I was a little boy in secondary school, I've always had a keen interest in global current affairs and local sociopolitical developments. Thus, since April 2013, I've been writing a weekly current affairs column, first for The Observer (2013-2019) and currently for Daily Monitor (2018-todate), both based in Kampala, Uganda. I also co-founded a political think-tank, Society for Justice and National Unity (SoJNU), with senior colleagues at Makerere University, Kampala, which seeks to provide intellectual input to Ugandan politics. In addition to my limited political activism, I also have been actively involved in community engagement as Vice President (2016-2018) and later Interim President (2018-2019) for the North America Masaba Cultural Association and board member of a university/tertiary education scholarship non-profit organization, CROSO.
