Other members of the Board include Kenyatta University’s Prof. David Minja, KSG acting Head of the School’s Centre for Public Service Values, Ethics and Integrity (CPSVEI), Dr. Florence Kithinji, Dr. Patrick Tandoj from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Prof. Thean Potgieter and Mr. Donovan Williams from National School of Government of South Africa, and Dr. Samuel Ngale from Mozambique's Higher Institute of Public Administration (ISAP).
The School, which is charged with providing Secretariat duties to the Board, was represented by Mr. Festus Kitui.
AMDIN is a network of Management Development Institutes (MDIs), Public Sector Training Institutes (PSTIs) and other Public Administration Institutions (PAIs) based in Africa. The network was launched in 2005, and completed all legal formalities regarding its establishment in 2007.
The overall objective of AMDIN is to facilitate the optimal functioning of African MDIs, PSTIs and PAIs and to provide a collective platform for these institutions to engage with various stakeholder communities.
Dr. Mohamed underscored the importance of the Journal in the dissemination of policy research among the Management Development Institutes noting that its launch is long overdue.
Indeed, the Board agreed that the maiden edition is scheduled for December, 2016, with an agreement that the journal would serve all the member states in the African Union.
