Reflections on the Aga Khan by an Esteemed African Mwalimu

A PEARL FOR A MONARCH OF FAITH AND PRACTICALITY: We may read the daily paper, watch a TV programme, resort to a banking, insurance or other financial service, attend school or receive medical care.

Even more importantly, few of us in East Africa, especially in the urban areas, ever go through the day without interacting with “subjects” of the Aga Khan, at work, at school or at play. This already hints at the sovereignty, the virtual ‘Head-of-State’ status, of the Aga Khan. But the story is even more intricate and fascinating, as I found out when I started looking around a little. CLICK TO READ PROFESSOR AUSTIN BUKENYA’S COMPLETE ARTICLE
