He was also a valued research associate to the McGregor Museum in Kimberley, SA and he served as a chief researcher for The Africa Institute of South Africa (AISA).
In addition to his immeasurable contributions to the ANG and his unyielding support for Indigenous and African blog-journalists, he was editor of the African-focused, Indigenist newsblog 'Fatima and Ahmed's Son' as well as the author and co-author of some 20 books, numerous articles and several published academic papers including:
