Elitabu Keto MSHIGENI

Elitabu Keto Mshigeni was born on January 14, 1944 in Same, in what was known then as the Northern Province of Tanzania. He went to school at Mpinji Primary School (1952-1955), Suji Middle School (1958-1959) in his home district, and Tabora Secondary School (1960-1965) – a territorially selective government school which sought to admit “best-performing” boys across the territory. So he was among the few boys who spent a whole stretch of six residential years at one school internally structured into ‘Lower School’ and ‘Upper School’, but both parts enjoying the best of the internationally sourced teachers (from UK, Canada, Australia, USA and Uganda) to complement the few local staff.
