Insecure leaders are into Titles;

Secure leaders are into *TRANSFORMATION.*

Their long unmerited titles

Hypnotized their thinking faculty so much so that

They can’t see the realities in presidentship

Because they have so much desires

In establishing themselves as Life presidents.

The lust for power

Can transformed a kind-hearted leader

Who puts people before power

To become the most tyrannical leader

Who can’t live a happy life without spilling blood

Of innocent souls who dares to challenge their ruling

By using human machineries for his dubious acts

Because he is paranoid and doesn’t believe in anyone.

The lust for power

Makes leaders wanting to prolong

Their stay in office through illegal means.

They use tribe and religion as a winning tool

To create division among their people.

They would rather see their people die

As a result of tribalism and religious supremacy

Than giving up power for peace to rain.

The lust for power

Makes leaders to indoctrinate

Their loyal security forces

With the believe that an order from a leader

Is more superior than the state constitution.

Making them believe that being patriotic to leader

Is more significant than to a nation.

Defending the life of a leader

Is more value than defending any other life.

Playing the game of hide and seek

With their security forces just stay in power.

*The lust for power is Satanism !*

It is high time for African Leaders to be great.

They should now rent their thinking faculties

For the following developmental agendas:

Think Transformation, Not Titles.

Think Purpose, Not Position.

Think Progress, Not Killing.

Think Passion, Not Pay.

Think Process, Not Possessions.

Think Posterity, Not Prosperity.

It is a sign of Leadership Wisdom to know that;

You are in transition

You are dispensable

You can be replaced.

*Anything contrary is folly !!!*

*DRA ONE*? *President Robert Mugabe* – “His Excellency, the President, Robert Gabriel Mugabe and Commander-in-Chief of the Zimbabwe Defence Forces, Patron of War Veterans, First Secretary General of the ZANU – PF and Chancellor of all State Universities and First Citizen of the Nation.”
