In the Indilinga issue 4, the authors posed the question Can IKS Offer Solutions for Modern Problems Facing Africa? The same question was again posed in Indilinga Issue 12. Subsequently the same question has consistently appeared, directly or indirectly, in all the issues that have followed. The question is also the subject for a research agenda for African Indigenous Knowledge Systems (AIKS). In fact, the challenge posed to the African IKS is to ensure its contribution to the economic, social, cultural and ethical transformation and development of the African societies. Therefore, it is imperative that African researchers on IKS engage themselves in a debate about the agenda for their research undertaking.
