Real leader creates more leaders

If it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, certainly it is a duck. The hul­labaloo on whether leaders are born or nurtured has been with us for a long time.

. A real leader creates more leaders while a leader wannabe creates a mam­moth of followers. Not that the real lead­ers do not exist but they have chosen to stay ‘clean’, after all who loves dirt?

This has left a big vacuum for farci­cal and scoundrel imposters to rise to the occasion. The hefty packages, privileges and powers whet their appetite to be that incumbent by hook or by crook. They have mastered the art of deception and manipulation and we have okayed it by being divided. During crisis ‘we are one” but afterwards, it is ‘every woman, man for her or himself God for us all. Who burnt the bridges?

We have permitted to be used as door­mats, puppets, and staircases/elevators, yet we are the boss. The boss calls the shots. But what if the boss has given a job with no job descriptions and no follow-up on underperformers? We have guzzled our national/county development coffers in the clubs and bars as we are wooed on where to cast our votes.

There are those leaders who are ‘try­ing’ but still their empire is engulfed by storms.

Then there are those who boycott the elections and deny themselves their dem­ocratic right of choosing their leaders and power of holding them accountable.
