Welcome to issue 24 of AJFAND.

This issue has been made possible through a major collaborative effort between AJFAND and Great Lakes University of Kisumu (GLUK) whose Vice Chancellor Prof. Daniel Kaseje has provided the Editorial. I wish to take this opportunity to acknowledge the partnership with GLUK which we hope can serve as a model in our collaborative efforts with other universities who hold scientific conferences, graduate seminars and workshops and also where a number of our authors and reviewers are based.

This issue is only the beginning of our effort with Great Lakes University to publish their quality scientific work for the benefit of mankind.

The articles here are excellent and include those which have been spearheaded by the university and others out of our regular process of articles’ management. Once again, we wish to express our utmost appreciation to our reviewers who work tirelessly for the journal.

In this issue, we have the following articles:
