Abstract: This study examines the existing common misconception that the religious curriculum changes which occurred in 2017 had potential of affecting students' teaching and learning in the Kingdom of ESwatini. This was a descriptive survey study based on Milner's (2010) Opportunity Gap explanatory framework which assisted in unpacking and understanding, and explaining educational practices related to opportunity: diversity blindness, teacher deficit mindsets, low expectations and teacher competencies. Qualitative approach was used to reflects on the religious curriculum changes. Qualitative approach was considered as relevant because of the curriculum complexities. As Grant, (2003) noted that educational matters such as religious education are complex and unstable processes.Data from policy related documents were used because government's practices and intentions are captured on policies. Content analysis was used as an ideal data analysis procedure in this study, where the relevant documents, were interrogated, compared objectively and inferences drawn.The study indicated that the institutionalised issues such as teacher religious blindness and deficit mindsets which fail them to recognise and to teach all.....

|Title||:||Fuzzy Comprehensive Assessment of Drought Vulnerability in Turkana Rangeland, Kenya|
|Authors||:||Juma Richard Otieno || Senior Lecturer|
Abstract: This paper explores the vulnerability context in Turkana rangeland. It establishes the origin of the people living in Turkana before they settled in the rangeland and provides a general environmental and demographic background. It is argued that to properly understand how Turkana people respond to food crises, it is imperative to appreciate that given the hostile nature of the Turkana environment, there are factors that are responsible for their vulnerability. The paper is based on key informant and household interviews. This is complemented by local level information gathered from other sources such as informal interviews, observation, and case histories, as well as from a review of several Turkana studies. This knowledge may enable us to gain satisfactory insight into the challenges facing Turkana people in attempting to secure a reliable and sustained livelihood, and how their livelihood responses can best be strengthened. It also becomes easier to draw comparisons with how the Turkana pastoral production systems function during "drought and famine stress‟ threat period. The paper is based on extensive review of secondary literature on Turkana rangeland.
