Zuma is a People's Leader
Ntozelizwe Benjamin, Student (MBA), South Africa
Zuma is a people's leader this is the distinction we must make. Every leader in the ANC has a roadmap and track that they leave. For example president Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela
was a unifier and world vision man, president Thabo Mbeki
was a strategist and economist with a master plan in his mind to drive the country as well as the continent of Africa forward which he still pursues doing today.
, due to his popularity in the ranks of people who do not know the moral values that ANC represents, made a charismatic choice to appoint ministers into his cabinet to blow up the budget (former minister of children and women and people living with disability). He employed friends to run ministries like that of communications, who had big egos not to be told what to do by their director generals.
Indeed he is a charismatic leader and what happens to those leaders they do not have a solid plan or can't think on their own and therefore are not decisive.
