Juma Volter MWAPACHU

Juma Volter Mwapachu was born on 27 September 1942 in Mwanza, Tanzania, although his genealogical home is in Tanga, to the north-east of Tanzania. The employment postings of his father, a Makerere College graduate and one of the early professional servants of the colonial government must have influenced the birth place and educational mobility of his son. For his primary and secondary education, Juma went to primary schools in Mwanza, Mbulu and Dar es Salaam (1949-1954), to middle school in Mpuguso in Tukuyu/Rungwe (1955–1958) and for his secondary “A-Level” education to Tabora (1959–1962) and secondary “O-Level” to St. Michael’s and St. George’s School Iringa, subsequently Mkwawa High School (1963–1964).

Zakia Hamdani MEGHJI

Zakia Hamdani Meghji (nee Hamdani) is a Tanzanian, born on the 31st of December 1946 in the-then Sultanate of Zanzibar, daughter of Mohammed Abdulrahman Hamdani and Salama Rubeya El-Genzel. Both parents were resident in Zanzibar, where their daughter went for her early-childhood and subsequent stages of elementary and secondary education. Upon passing her senior-school [‘A-level’/Form 6] examinations, she was admitted at the University of Dar es Salaam for a bachelors’ degree programme in the-then Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. She specialised more in the social science disciplines, with education preparing her for the teaching vocation. Upon graduation in 1971, she joined the teaching profession and taught at a government secondary school in Dar es Salaam.
