We Need A Progressive Leader Who Isn’t A Thief’- Mbeki


The President South Africans butted out, Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki thinks Africa is in trouble. The continent needs progressive leaders and such leaders are simply nowhere to be found, he says. Mbeki made the remarks at a question-and-answer session organized for the Thabo Mbeki African Leadership Institute by the Thabo Mbeki Foundation. The former President said the problem of Africa isn’t the general quality of leadership, but the challenge of progressive leadership.
According to him, progressive leaders are those that serve the interest of the people without looking for things to pocket for themselves.
“What the continent needs is a progressive leadership to expect the change we need. And, a progressive leader is a leader who says ‘my task is to serve the people, to ensure that the quality of life of the people changes for the better.”
“…Therefore” he went on, “that progressive leader would not be a thief.
“…You can’t say…I am a progressive leader and therefore serve the interests of the people…but in that course, I will also put something in pocket,” stated Mbeki.
With that, he referred to South Africa and narrated that the former director-general in his presidency, Frank Chikane, was told by those who masterminded his removal in 2007 that his problem was not allowing them to put something in their pockets.
