The DASP community is sad to let one of its most popular members move to hopefully greener pastures: Mr Silas Amutenya, the founding secretary of the Department of Architecture, later to become DASP, leaves the Department on 31. March 2018. Since 2011 Silas has been the point of contact of the Department, cherished by staff and students alike for his diligence, his positive spirit and collegiality. As the only male secretary at NUST Silas has challenged stereotypes and surpassed boundaries. Much of the work of setting up Departmental structures and processes must be credited to his hard work, and we want to thank Silas for his immense contribution to the success of the Department.
Silas will take up a position at Agribank, while also finalizing his MBA. While we will miss Silas’s laughter in the building, we wish him all the best for his future endeavors!
