Another occasion has just come by and the people have had their say on who will lead them for the next 5 years. Whether it be fulfilling or empty, it will come to pass...no choice.
It is indeed sad to say that our people who actually provide the mandate often seem ignorant, lack the ability, are probably faced with cohesion and intimidation, are enticed into, or simply follow blood-line in their say to choose national representation. It's for any one or really for the combination of the possibilities said above that time and again, leadership akin to local community leadership is elected. These subjects without choice take back-stage at the national level; often loosing face-value come discussions on important national and local issues at that forum (National Parliament).
We need to start talking real Okapian patriotism (with respect to leadership quality) within our respective communities so that leaders that our people mandate are articulate, influential among their peer, amply educated to address both local as well as national issues....Enough of electing spectators at national level.
