    I have been thinking of some leadership problems in Africa. There are couple of problems we have but one of them is lack of understanding that being a leader in that sense means you are a musician who actually makes music. You’ve understood what you are good at and you are doing it.

    That itself puts you in a leading position in the society and makes you perfect leader. Part of the problem is, a lot of people would follow you, thinking playing music is what makes you a leader which would be wrong since what matters is the underlying idea of doing what you are good at (at least those who are currently the presidents should be doing this).

    Imagine you are facing a stream of people heading somewhere. Everyone passing you are saying “you are going the wrong way”. If you turn around thou will find that now instead of facing those people you are standing in front of all those behind you, leading them. They don’t follow you really, just like a leader doesn’t really lead people, it’s just a position that express how well you orient yourself into the direction you are going to, so to be a leader just do what’s good for yourself, be a valuable person and enrich the society with your talent, don’t make others higher priority than your own self, and don’t follow others blindly just because you like their position. You will also quickly understand how important others are for your own well being.

    Now in Tanzania's case, if our country is facing some problems, we must know that our leaders have no that excellent talent to pass to the public or country, the solution of this therefore is to remove such regime ASAP. There is no need of wasting more time.
