Leaders must serve Africa

I AM happy that leaders in Zimbabwe are talking about progress. I just hope the talk turns into action.

An African is begging for food. She needs money for food and a place to stay. The sun is her heater and when it sets she will be cold. She might even die of cold while leaders argue in a nice, warm room and enjoy a meal.

God created the world to benefit us all, to feed, clothe and house us all. He put fruits, vegetation, animals, water and so on above ground and gold, diamonds and so on below it. All that was for the benefit of His people. But now children are starving.

Leaders should realise that even Moses had to share with his followers to ensure that they did not starve . That is a leader's duty.

A leader utilises the power given to him. A leader is anadministrator, a coordinator. He coordinates the country'sresources. He considers the needs of a country through skills, infrastructure and manpower.

Leaders are chosen because they care for their people . Today, some leaders are chosen for other reasons. This has caused a lot of pain and suffering.

How do you feel leading people who are hungry, hurt, sad and so on? Think of a coach who coaches a losing team. People choose a leader they think will lead them to prosperity.

To all leaders, especially in Africa, please love one another. If you have a continent of sad human beings what do you think will happen to the continent? We say we love Africa, but if we have angry, unhappy human beings, we are destroying it.

Leaders, be like Moses because there is a starving, wise future leader who might die before fulfilling his purpose in Africa. He might die with the wisdom he was supposed to impart . You are killing the wise with your unwise actions and will eventually kill Africa
