in defence of wanjala

What is the quality of literary criticism in Kenya? A debate was started a few weeks ago, with an article in a Kenya daily. There was a mention of deadwood. There was a mention of a university in Nairobi and a faculty. One of the people who was rejected was professor Chris Wanjala. Someone comes out in defence of this very man

Prof Chris Lukorito Wanjala since he joined the ranks of writers and literary scholars at the then University College, Nairobi, as a freshman in 1968, he has proved himself to be the father of literary criticism in East Africa. PHOTO | FILE
