Dani Wadada Nabudere’s Theoretical Explanation of Imperialism: an Exemplary Contribution to its Concrete Understanding

"The purpose of this brief is to pay tribute to Dani Wadada Nabudere as a distinguished multidisciplinary African scholar of Uganda with a high academic and scholarly reputation in Africa and the rest of the world. He did much to capture the theoretical aspect of imperialism. His exemplary contribution to the concrete understanding of imperialism is an integral part of the struggle on an ideological front to overcome the forces of control, domination and exploitation on the global scale. His theoretical works on imperialism represent his commitment to ending socio-political and economic inequality and social class division by restoring community as the basis of socio-political and economic life. He substantiated this theoretical commitment in practice. He sought a theoretical and practical basis for concerted revolutionary and progressive action directed towards this end. His life was an engagement in the efforts to contribute towards a world united in a search for peace and security through socio-economic justice."
