Juma Volter MWAPACHU

Juma Volter Mwapachu was born on 27 September 1942 in Mwanza, Tanzania, although his genealogical home is in Tanga, to the north-east of Tanzania. The employment postings of his father, a Makerere College graduate and one of the early professional servants of the colonial government must have influenced the birth place and educational mobility of his son. For his primary and secondary education, Juma went to primary schools in Mwanza, Mbulu and Dar es Salaam (1949-1954), to middle school in Mpuguso in Tukuyu/Rungwe (1955–1958) and for his secondary “A-Level” education to Tabora (1959–1962) and secondary “O-Level” to St. Michael’s and St. George’s School Iringa, subsequently Mkwawa High School (1963–1964).
