A journalist’s reflection on lessons from James David Rubadiri’s life

Mzati Nkolokosa


James David Rubadiri was a teacher both inside and outside the classroom. Whenever he opened his mouth to speak, his listeners learned something, almost always, perhaps without his realisation. In this article, I give a journalist’s reflection on Rubadiri’s life as embodying various lessons for all those that interacted with him. I conclude by noting that Rubadiri was a great teacher whose life remains a classroom for all of us even after his death.
