This paper provides an analysis of the implications of Professor Senteza Kajubi's philosophy of widening access to higher education for research and development. The thesis of this paper is that according to Senteza Kajubi, access to higher education should be widened because it leads to research which in turn contributes to development. Without research in medicine, agriculture, business, technology the development that African countries yearn for will be unattainable and elusive.
