Mary Michael NAGU

Mary Nagu, née Michael, was one of the most illustrious female students at the University of Dar es Salaam in the 1970s, and, certainly, one of the exemplary women graduates and trusted employees of corporate institutions and government departments of the years of economic experimentation and debates of the 1970s-90s.

Like the majority of university-going students of the 1970s, she hailed from a rural district, born of rural-peasant parents in the Hanang district of the-then Arusha [now Manyara] region of Tanzania. This was born on 11 May 1952, going to school for primary education at Endasak (19601962), Katesh (1962-1963) and Nangwa (1964-1966).
