But the University and Medical School have remained fairly silent. I am not surprised.
Our institutions here find it very difficult to recognize greatness in our midst. They prefer to laud the highly visible achievers from the West who never contributed anything significant to our development. Or big 'Johnny come lately' donors. So you will find not find any lecture theatres, or buildings called after local heros.
Why are we so afraid to be gracious? So reluctant to recognize our own people?
