The lead­er­ship bank­ruptcy in SA

CityPress - - Voices - Lungile Mandlendoda Krugers­dorp, Gaut­eng

Dur­ing the ANC’s na­tional elec­tive congress in Polok­wane, I heard peo­ple shout­ing for change. At the time, I was not sure whether this was be­cause there was a gen­uine need for change or not. To­day I re­alise that they called for change be­cause they wanted to de­stroy our coun­try.

The re­al­ity is that the ma­jor chal­lenge we have in South Africa is lead­er­ship bank­ruptcy, which is the main cause of all the other chal­lenges we are fac­ing as a coun­try.

Our coun­try to­day has no po­lit­i­cal di­rec­tion. The speeches of our lead­ers are di­rec­tion­less and mean­ing­less.

It is be­cause they don’t have vi­sion, and a leader must have a vi­sion – and it should not be a self­ish vi­sion.

Apart from friends and fam­ily mem­bers, you must think about other peo­ple as well, and a leader must be trusted.
