Wiegert de Leeuw

I started my career as agricultural extension worker in Kenya in 1972. I wrote my MA on Bura Irrigation and Settlement Project and worked for many rural development projects and local governments in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

Moreover I carried out consultancy work for the Dutch Ministry of Development Cooperation and the European Community. Together with B.M. Kaggia and Mwaganu Kaggia I wrote a biography on the life of freedom fighter and politician Bildad M. Kaggia.

I have a special interest in irrigation and in particular in Bura Irrigation and Settlement Project in Kenya. Other areas of interest are decentralization and history of Kenya.
