Know when to say bye

2018-02-22 06:01

Political leaders should know when their time is up and avoid overstaying their welcome.

The ambitions and personal interests of leaders shouldn’t kill their conscience. They should know the difference between right and wrong.

Leaders should step down as soon as they lose their moral authority to lead society, so they don’t destroy it and damage their personal reputations.

The mentality that believes giving up power for the sake of the country’s stability is a sign of weakness and should be rooted out from society.

It has become the norm on the African continent for leaders to cling to power.

Leaders who love their countries don’t destroy them for their selfish interests.
