Feting Mwalimu Kawooya: A humble but great teacher

What you need to know:

  • There is a saying that saints are ordinary people who do ordinary things in an extraordinary way.
  • I dare not call Mwalimu Kawooya a saint, although I know he is a deeply spiritual person and a strong practising pillar of his church.

I am usually more readily impressed by women than by men. We will not get into the reasons for that here, especially as I understand some of them may be quite controversial. In any case, the person strongly on my mind this week is a man, a humble teacher, known only to his students and close friends like me.
