Love him or hate him that man is a rare gem of intellectual wealth. He’s a focused professional, sober minded and mentally strong. I’m starting to see why he does the things he does.
He has humbly but tactfully pursued a career linear path in a truly messy political environment. That thing he calls “Value Chain addition expert” is such a rare unexploited career path.
It is a well hatched professional scheme to grant him a niche and desk to work from without the crowding of professional busy bodies who have no creative and independent professional paths.
Look at it this way, where else in this country did you hear of a value chain officer/director? I mean what would you think of a fella who comes to you and claims he can assist you tap the best proceeds from your cow including cowdung, skin, horns, hooves and bones besides the meat everyone is used to? Because you want money and want it in plenty and quick enough, you’d immediately hire that guy.
That’s how Dr. Temi Mutia earns his living. When everyone else is waiting for openings from recruiting agencies in the conventional career paths, Dr. Temi Mutia is creating a need for his recruitment in every organisation.
Trust me, soon there will be a public university offering studies in value chain addition and related blah blah blahs. I can bet my last coin Mutongoi Temi will be its first Dean of studies. That’s how he has managed to survive in the Mbee Nzei regime. Remember it didn’t like him from the start!
