Ellen sat down with Texas A&M student Ashton Robinson and her professor Henry Musoma, who insisted the college senior bring her 10-month-old son to class so he could help babysit. Find out why Henry welcomed Ashton and baby Emmett with literal open arms.

 

Dr Musoma was born and raised in Zambia. He completed high school education in Zambia , Mozambique and Zimbabwe. In 1996 Musoma relocated to the United States to attend college , receiving both his masters and undergraduate degrees from Texas A&M University with a concentration in international Agricultural Development.

Dr Musoma currently teaches in the Mays Business School at Texa A&M. He is also an adjunct professor in the George Bush School of Government and Public Service where he teaches a course in leadership and Public Administration in the Masers of international affairs program.

      Great job Dr. Musonda. It brings clean air to the threads away from the usual political theater. Is practice is very common in the US education system. I remember some years back in the US, often times my wife used to attend her lectures with our then 4 years old child issue free. She would only give baby school work to do and baby was respectful of the lectures throughout. Madam excelled with honors through to her Graduate program in hard sciences. Moral lesson is that this culture of denying mothers education should be avoided. Things happen in life. Let’s help the Girl child reach her potential. Let mothers also plan to go back to school.

      He made an embarrassement of himself and as Zambian you should refuse being associated with people like him who are full of themselves.

      I have helped zambia, sent clothes, given shoes, thinking of buying land – what has he done ?

      Think about that for a second

      Like him, I hold a PhD

      Thanks

      Anyone who says I completed my high school is a mercenary.

      In Zambia you complete secondary school.

      He rubs me the wrong way

      Thanks

      @ndobo ati ba Mushota has ….. ”helped zambia, sent clothes, given shoes” and she is …….”thinking of buying land” for her Zambian family or for herself! Mushota also proclaims ….. ”Anyone who says I completed my high school is a mercenary. In Zambia you complete secondary school” What Mushota doesnt know is that there are still High Schools in Zambia. Some PhD Mushota has! Anyway, she is waiting for Nick to pay her, the monthly allowance!

      @Senior Citizen please watch First Grader, you will be inspired! Its a movie about 80 year old man who received a letter from the Government of Kenya and he kept the letter for over 30 years because he couldnt read, write or speak English! He went to school and started from grade 1 untill she graduated and read the letter! The letter was about compensation for his brutal assault on him by the British during Mau Mau!

    If Dr.Musoma came to Zambia, the PF would not utilize his skills. In Zambia we always settle for second best and people are comfortable with that

    How do you utilize her skills? There are a lot of Zambians working in Zambia just that there are so numerous variables at play for the country to develop. These variables need to be tackled holistically first.

    it’s mind boggling how this comes as a surprise to some of you guys. musuma is a prof at a us college. now are you telling me that this’ the first time you’ve been made aware of the fact that there are Zambian profs in various institutions around the world? unbelievable!.
    when you read some of the comments on threads, don’t be too quick to treat them as disparaging remarks. take a moment and analyze the comment even if the opinions expressed are different than yours, that’s how we learn. I’d like you to do that because some of the comments are from people with expertise in whatever subject matter they are commenting on. so please don’t be to dismissive, there are Zambians who understand certain issues greatly because they’ve spent years studying and even teaching on those same…

    Professor Musoma once lived in Chingola and his dad is an educationist who worked for ZCCM & KCM and Mozambique in between. We are very happy for you Dr. Musoma and may the good Lord continue blessing you.

      @Timbalife, I was just wondering thinking but you I think you have just answered my question! I dealt a lot with Mr. Henry Musoma Senior in KCM. Notable among the people the senior Musoma mentored are Dan Pule, Nevers Mumba, Mr. Chilundika etc. He is a very intelligent man who the Indians tried very hard to frustrate. Unless I am mistaken, the senior Musoma is now based in Luanshya running a lodge.

      .. Sorry, I meant to say “I was just wondering of he is related to Mr. Henry Musoma” I think I am over excited with the Name Henry Musoma! The old Musoma is just brilliant!

    That is what we Zambians are known for and that is why we have been at peace with each other for decades. Let us not allow a few selfish and power hungry politicians cause problems for us. Tili phe!

    This is what proper Educators do. They facilitate their students even in their personal battles. Being an Educator is being able to appreciate the right of all Human beings to an Education. It means understanding the Universal Declaration section on the Right to Education. Educators are at the forefront of ensuring access to Education for all and SHOULD agitate for their struggling students. Here in the UK a report has shown, poorer students have higher statistics of dropping out from courses. Students March for their Tutors to have higher pay and good services, we did in 2011, some students even getting arrested. Congratulations Dr Musoma for being a good Human being!

    Dr Mushota with a PHd is very authentic and grounded. Zambia has always had secondary schools, period. And apparently it took this adjunct professor THREE countries, who knows HOW MANY YEARS, to finish secondary school er i mean high school! His PHd was in international what? All together now Ha ha ha ha!

    THAT’S VERY COOL Dr MUSOMA. THAT REMINDS ME ABOUT HAVING TAKEN MY GIRL TO UNIVERSITY WHEN NO ONE CAME TO LOOK AFTER HER. SHE WAS BEFORE 3 YEARS OLD AND CLEVER. I DID NOT THINK THAT MY LECTURER Dr KATE FINNEY WAS GOING TO ALLOW ME WITH MY BABY IN A SERIOUS LECTURE SUCH AS JAVA PROGRAMMING OR WAS IT LOGICAL FOUNDATION (MATHEMATICS IN OTHER WORD). I HAD GONE EARLY TO GO AND ASK HER BEFORE ENTERING THE LECTURE THEATRE AND TO MY SHOCK SHE ALLOWED ME. SHE GAVE THE LECTURE A SURPRISE WHEN SHE COULD READ SOME VERY COMPLICATED WORDS ON THE WHITEBOARD. I TAUGHT HER TO READ AND COMPUTER LITERACY LONG BEFORE HER NURSERY SCHOOL. SIMILARLY, I USED TO GO WITH MY FIRST BORN TO COLLEGE IN THE CITY WHEN THERE WAS NO ONE TO LOOK AFTER HER.ALL MY CHILDREN AREN’T CRY BABIES SO LECTURERS AND RECEPTIONISTS…

    …ALL MY CHILDREN AREN’T CRY BABIES SO LECTURERS AND RECEPTIONISTS LOVED TO PLAY WITH HER- EVEN CHANGED HER SOILED NAPPIES WHILE I WAS ATTENDING LESSONS. SOME LECTURERS UNDERSTAND ESPECIALLY COMMITTED STUDENTS’ PROBLEMS.THOUGH NOT TO SAY OTHERS ARE BAD- THEY MAY NOT JUST BE ON THE LEVEL TO UNDERSTAND STUDENTS’ PROBLEMS. CONGRATULATIONS TO Dr MUSOMA, THE STUDENT MUM AND ELLEN AND HER SHOW. YOU ARE ALL GREAT. I HAVE HAD GREAT LECTURERS IN MY LIFE- THANKS TO ALL OF THEM.

    It seems it is just hard for us to just appreciate a good story. It would be nice to stick to the story and not make every story political. Not everything is PF Vs UPND.
