Tengatenga To Research in Cambridge
The BNL Times — “Malawi’s Premier Online News” — is reporting that Bishop James Tengatenga will be coming to the U.S. after all:
US-Based Episcopal Divinity Centre has offered a scholarship to Anglican bishop James Tengatenga to conduct research of his choice at the institution.
International Ministries and Pastoral Care Associate of the school, Rev. Kapya Kaoma disclosed the development in Lilongwe at the weekend.
“This I believe is an honour to Bishop Tengatenga because it is always given to people of high respect and it’s by appointment. They don’t just pick anybody, you have got to be respected to receive the scholarship,” said Kaoma.
He said Tengatenga will engage in a project of his choice but will have an opportunity to interact with students on those projects.
“In this kind of project, you read, write and sometimes hold talks with students and the school pays for everything,” he said.
Kapya Kaoma was one of fourteen signatories of a recent public letter critical of the College’s recision of its offer to Tengatenga. He had also previously written in support of Tengatenga’s candidacy.
Addendum: The article refers to the Episcopal Divinity Centre; I assume that the correct reference should be to the Episcopal Divinity School, with which Kapya Kaoma is affiliated.

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…

Fare Thee Well, Tom Crady
And now Dean Tom Crady has precipitously announced his departure from the College after only 20 months on the job. How to read this? By way of background, prior to coming to Dartmouth, Crady had…

Kangaroo Court, Indeed
In an interview with The Dartmouth, alumni-elected trustee T.J. Rodgers ‘70 explained his reasons for declining to participate in future evaluations of trustees up for “re-election,” namely the “kangaroo court” nature of such discussion in…
