PhD students of the Pan African University Institute of Governance Human and Social Sciences (PAUGHSS) started defending their PhD theses in April 2019.  Three out of twelve of the students passed through the jury emerging excellent.

Nicholas Mwebaze Mwebesa from Uganda was one of those who first defended. His thesis focused on “Transborder Water Governance and Conflict Management in the Lake Victoria Basin”. In his research work, he aimed at looking at the way Africans can collectively manage the resources sustainably to ensure that people who depend on that lake don’t suffer.

Faustini Peter Panga from Tanzania, on his part, wrote a thesis on “Good governance and the Value for Money in Public Procurement Cycle”, specifically in the local government procurement. In his thesis, he discovered amongst others that Government institutions have been procuring ghost projects.

It should be recalled that this is the first batch of PhD students hosted by the Institute since its creation. According to Prof. Jean Vincent NTUDA EBODE, Director of PAUGHSS, since those who finished first were not from Cameroon, it was a supplementary reason to congratulate them.

With the challenges posed by governance in most economic and political blocks on the continent, those are PhD holders ready-made.
