Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, University of Nairobi, Kenya. The relative bioavailabilities of three carbamazepine tablet formulations available in the Kenyan market (Temporal(R), Taver(R) and Carbamazepine Lincoln) compared with the innovator formulation (Tegretol(R)) were evaluated in seven healthy African volunteers (5 males, two females; aged 22-36 years), according to a randomised fourway crossover study design, following oral administration of single 200 mg doses with a three week washout period. In vitro dissolution profiles of the tablets were also evaluated. Relative bioavailabilities ((F)rel) of Temporal(R), Taver(R) and Carbamazepine Linocoln were 101.2%, 82.2% and 71.6% respectively, compared with Tegretol(R). Percent drug content dissolved in vitro after I hour were 91.3%, 75.9% and 39.3% for Temporal(R), Taver(R) and Carbamazepine Lincoln, respectively. It was concluded that Temporal(R) was bioequivalent to Tegretol(R) while Taver(R) and Carbamazepin Lincoln were bioinequivalent to Tegretol(R). Administration of Taver(R) or Carbamazepine Lincoln might lead to poor control of epileptic seizures.

Presented here is a 16-year-old girl who was referred on 30th January 1996 with diagnosis of cord compression with spastic paraplegia with sensory level at T7/T8. CT scan myelogam confirmed soft tissue density mass displacing cord to the left with no dye being seen beyond T3. Thoracic spine decompressive laminectomy was performed on 1st January 1996 at Nairobi West Hospital extending from T3 to T6 level, which revealed a fibrous haemorrhagic tumour. Histology showed meningioma (mixed fibrous type and meningoepitheliomatous type) with many psammoma bodies. She had a stormy post-operative period, with infection and wound dehiscence. This was treated with appropriate antibiotics and wound care. She was eventually rehabilitated and was able to walk with the aid of a walking frame because of persistent spasticity of right leg. She was seen once as an outpatient by author on 6th July 1996, she was able to use the walking frame, but the right leg was still held in flexion deformity at the knee. She was thus referred to an orthopaedic surgeon for possible tenotomy. She was able to resume her studies at the University ambulating using a wheel chair and walking frame. She presented with worsening of symptoms in 2001 (five years after her first surgery). MRI scan thoracic spine revealed a left anterolateral intradural lesion extending from T3 to T5 vertebral body level compressing and displacing the spinal cord. She had a repeat surgery on 6th March 2001 at Kenyatta National Hospital; spastic paraparesis and urinary incontinenece persisted. She also developed bed sores and recurrent urinary tract infections. She was followed up by the author and other medical personnel in Mwea Mission Hospital where she eventually succumbed in 2005, nine years after her first surgery. This case is presented as a case of incompletely excised spinal meningioma to highlight some of the problems of managing spinal meningiomas when operating microscope and embolisation of tumours are not readily available. Also the family experienced financial constraint in bringing the patient for regular follow-up, and getting access to appropriate antibiotics, catheters and urine bags.

Twalib MH. "AN INGRATIATORS QUANDARY: A CLOSER LOOK AT THE EFFECTS OF THE DIMENSION OF INGRATIATION ON THE TARGET.". Forthcoming. Abstract

The objective of this study was to find out which of the dimensions of ingratiation has more effect on the target person. Studies have indicated that some employees who succeeded in organizations were not necessarily the best ones for the company, but were those who were most skillful at flattering their superiors.Perhaps the most basic factor related to successful ingratiation is the specific tactic used to increase liking. Literature is unclear on which of the dimensions would yield more results or whether if they are used together will yield more results to the target person than individually.It was hypothesized that there is no significant difference in using any of the dimensions to the target person. The study further hypothesized that there is no difference on the effect of the dimensions whether used individually or jointly. The study used a descriptive survey of a population of 169employees responding to statements about their use of the three dimensions of ingratiation. Primary data was collected using self-administered structured questionnaires. Data was analyzed using one and two-way ANOVA and the response rate was 72.2%. The results showed that opinion conformity has the highest significant mean among the three strategies followed by other enhancement and lastly self-presentation.The findings of the study also indicated that the three strategies cannot be applied at one go. It is recommended that employees should ensure application of these ingratiation strategies one at a time. The paper suggests that more strategies can be considered in order to solve an ingratiators’ dilemma. These findings add significant value on both policy and practice.

Due to the increased importance of DFIGs in optimization of real and reactive power losses and the maintenance of voltage profile, the general methods of DG placement and sizing in the existing literature cannot be of practical importance in DFIG .In this paper a pure PSO method used in general DG is compared with a HGAPSO in the siting and sizing of DFIG with the objective of minimizing power losses. The corresponding Combined participation factors are assigned using the DFIG Domain Distributed Slack Bus Model and a comparison made on the two schemes of loss minimization.

Organizations are striving to find better ways of engaging their employees since many organizations have released that employees are the most important resource for achieving their goals. This study’s objective was to find out the factors affecting employee engagement at jubilee insurance. Descriptive survey was used as a research design and questionnaires distributed to the 175 respondents from a population of 580. Factor analysis was used to analyze the data and the results indicated that four major factors influence employee engagement. It is recommended that managers should ensure they have a good relationship with employee and encourage teamwork in the organization.

Twalib MH. "Storm in My Comfort Zone." DBA Africa Management Review. Forthcoming. Abstract

The objective of this study was to analyse different situations about incidences where people found it difficult to change on different situations.Change has always been uncomfortable; it takes courage and time to accept it. Many models have been developed to assist in change management including Kurt Lewin’s model of change. Other authors have also indicated the importance of embracing change when it is appropriate. This paper sheds light on real life events and situations where change is due and employees in institutions are uncomfortable with it. The paper describes the different behaviors exhibited by different individuals in resisting change. Data was collected through recordings, interviews conducted with both the change agents, and in some instances with change champions. The paper concludes by elaborating the importance of change and its successes. The incidences were collected from different institutions of higher learning in Kenya.

Kiplagat D. STRATEGY FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION AND ADOPTION OF E-PROCUREMENT IN KENYA PUBLIC SECTOR. Wausi D, ed. Nairobi: University of Nairobi; Forthcoming. Abstract

There is strong consensus among researchers and practitioners regarding the strategic importance of developing efficient purchasing techniques to increase transparency and fairness, reduce corruption, ensure competitiveness and reduce costs. An increasing number of government authorities are adopting e-procurement solutions to reap the above stated benefits (Panayiotou et al., 2004). E-procurement is the process of purchasing goods and services electronically , and can be defined as “the use of integrated (commonly web-based) communication systems for the conduct of part or all of the purchasing process; a process that may incorporate stages from the initial need identification by users, through search, sourcing, negotiation, ordering, receipt, payment and post-purchase review” (Presutti,2003).

In this research proposal I propose to comprehensively study through explorative case study five successful cases of e-procurement in the public sector in Korea, Australia, Italy, Ireland, Philippine's and use their experiences, challenges and strategies employed to come up with a multi-disciplinary framework for the successful implementation and adoption of e-procurement in the public sector in Kenya. In this research critical successes factors (CSFs) and diffusion of innovation theory will be used in the study. Explorative case study and qualitative research design methodology will be used in this research study although aspects on the attitude of the intended users will be analyzed quantitatively.

Twalib MH. "• Twalib, M.H. (2018). To Keep close or to Let Loose: Recipe for Sustainable Quality Dyad. .". Forthcoming. Abstract

The objective of this study was to determine the recipe of sustainable quality dyad. Leaders are known to consciously and sub consciously form two groups; in-group and outgroup members.Studies have shown that members of the in-group work overtime and perform extra duties and in turn,get favours from the leaders including career mobility and access to information, among other favours.Literature is unclear on how these groups are formed and this paper embarked on finding out the recipe of the formation and sustainability of a quality dyad. It was hypothesised that being a male member, trust and competence are not recipesof a high quality relationship. The study used a descriptive survey of a population of 19 leaders were responding to questions about their 169 employeeswho report to them directly.Primary data was collected using self-administered structured questionnaires.122 pairs of leaders and their direct reports was the response rate(72.2%). Descriptive statistics were used to analyse the data.The hypothesis wastested using logistical regression technique. The results showed that competence and trust arethe recipe for a high quality relationship. Masculinity, on the other hand, was not a recipe for a sustainable quality dyadic relationship. It is recommended that employees should ensure high level trustworthiness and competence for them to be kept close by the leader. The paper suggests that more variables can be considered as recipes for the quality dyadic relationship. These findings add significant value on both policyand practice.
