I soon realized that beyond the roads, the hospitals and the schools promised to be built, and indeed they were, values needed to be changed beyond the billions needed for infrastructure.
If the incumbent administration is to be truly defeated, it must be from the change of values from the forced poverty and dependence on patronage and accommodation. It is the people who will demand and build decent homes, learn and educate themselves based on their passion and God-given talents and enable our food producers the facility to feed our own population.
Change is not to be dictated from above and outside. It must come from within and from the person himself. And that is to be exemplified by the leadership. Otherwise, we end up in the same cycle of lies and deceit. Of shortcuts and corruption. Of wheeling and dealing instead of political will. Governance with no vision except perpetuation.
