Samuel Matsangaise was seeking international experience when he joined CTA as Publications Officer in 1997, after 5 years as scientific editor and then as Director at the University of Zimbabwe Press. It heightened his input to CTA, at a time when changes in publishing were bringing new opportunites, many of them electronic. These he seized with gusto, helping to expand Spore and CTA s own line of publications into digital versions. His departure in June 2002 sees him much wiser about diversity in the ACP group, and about different perceptions of 'being African' and African realities. For CTA to cater for them all is, he feels, highly ambitious, and requires crucial choices. A shaker by nature ('tradition belongs to the dead' is a favourite of his), he is a relentless pursuer of the best possible output in all endeavours. Now Sam has chosen 'to be my own master' and to head the new Development Knowledge Trust in Zimbabwe. There he can practise his considerable (and passionate) powers of debating and networking on human rights, transparency, development information and agriculture. After 5 years with your hands on the wheels of Spore, Annual Reports and some remarkably edited books, plus your BSc in agriculture, we know you ll do it well, Sam!
