Member of Parliament

A career electrical engineer and Member of Parliament, Stella Martin Manyanya is a University of Dar es Salaam graduate selected for a ‘UDSM Alumna of the Month’ for October 2021. She has lots of experiences to be told, which have solidified her career and her perspectives to life. From these, the younger generation in Tanzania stands to benefit. Stella was born on 4 August 1962 in the Nyasa district of Ruvuma region, a district that shares borders with Ruvuma district in neighbouring Mozambique. ‘Ruvuma’ and ‘Rouvuma’, though physically contiguous, are two different locations in the two neighbouring countries boasting of different colonial heritages—the British and the Portuguese.

Shamsi Vuai NAHODHA

Hon. Mr. Shamsi Vuai Nahodha is our UDSM ‘Alumnus of the Month’ for November 2021 – a man many recall to have been such a cool, attentive and welcoming personality during his student days. Apparently, he continued to be a man of firm attributes of a kind, loyal yet principled leader he symbolises today. He was born on the 20th of November in 1962, in the-then Sultanate of Zanzibar. Upon reaching seven, his parents enrolled him at Kiongoni Primary School for the seven years of primary education (1969-1978). From Kiongoni, he proceeded to secondary education at Ben-Bella Secondary School (1979-1980). In 1980, he entered the Institute of Kiswahili and Foreign Languages
