“Talking from an African scientist context, our role as social scientists has to be being the ‘pacemaker’ to establish good connections between our mythology and the western knowledge learned in school and academia. The biggest challenge for African scientists, who have been trained in western institutions, is to liberate themselves from western instructions to understand what people locally are saying and seeing. How can we approach this for western scientists trained in western institutions?”
