The usual tendency of citizens to vote leaders that end up disappointing them gives me the thought that democracy is its own enemy. The renown definition so crammed in our minds that democracy is a government of the people by the people and by the people defines the extent to which democracy can either harm or benefit us.
Every time we citizens vote we endorse the kind of leadership and governance we would wish to serve us. This therefore calls for individual deliberate consideration on the vision we have for Africa. This kind of vision no matter how enthusiastic we may feel about them, it requires the contribution of our leaders for them to be successfully implemented.
This consideration goes far in preventing our regrets on the kinds of leaders we elect.
