He also holds a Masters in Sacred Theology from the Duquesne University of the Holy Spirit, a Bachelor degree in Law from University of Nairobi, Kenya and a Bachelor degree in Philosophy from Pontifical Urban University Rome. He has been trained and certified in Resource Mobilization and Project Management by the Leadership Institute’s International School of Fundraising in Madrid, Spain, the Claretian Missionaries Proclade, and the Regional Partnership for Resource Development, Nairobi, Kenya. He is an ardent researcher in the areas of law touching on the relationship between the church and state, and passionate about the struggle for a more just and peaceful society.
Fr. Ted, as he is fondly called, is a seasoned missionary who has traversed the hinterlands of Africa – worked in the missions of Luba, Kogo and Nzokzoma in Equatorial Guinea – for five years, in Utonkon, Nigeria for 2 years, and in Kerwa, Shanzu and Ngaremara missions in Kenya for 15 years, before moving to Uganda in 2019 where he presently resides after his doctoral studies in Spain. In gratitude to God, he passionately cherishes his work in these missions of Africa. His missionary encounters with those living at the margins of civilization led him to the Faculty of Law, led him to the Justice and Peace struggle, led him to the quest on how to rescue Africa from the clutches of domination.
