The Other Afrik - Panafrica - Development - Politics - Governance
‘Gently in manner, strong in deed’ were the inscriptions sitting atop the Presidential Desk at the oval office when Dwight Eisenhower occupied the White House as President of the United States of America. Inscribed in Latin, the plaque serves as a good guide to political leaders the world over who preside over nations struggling to emancipate from the doldrums of economic hardship. Good political leadership can take a transformational or a transactional form, the initiator or the defender of the initiated; the maverick or the conformist. The German Philosopher Hegel spoke of the evolution of mankind revolving around a synthesis of conflicting ideas. It is therefore imperative for the world to produce an occasional political stalwart who departs from the established order to infuse new ideas into a world jaded by hackneyed beliefs and policies fit for ages past.
