Africa-Press – Malawi. Leaders often choose to become leaders through personal ambitions and sometimes resort to diabolic means to outwit opponents. However, this path does not guarantee victory, as obstacles can hinder progress.
Notable figures who attempted this path to success both domestically and internationally include Morgan Tsvangirai, Afonso Dhlakama, Leon Trotsky, Hillary Clinton, Thomas Jefferson, and Brown Mpinganjira, the young, aspirational politicians who battled Kamuzu Banda during the 1964 Cabinet Crisis, among others.
Six feet under, their hopes of rising to the top of their respective nations were entirely dashed. Still, very few people are exceptional in this field.
Fatalism suggests that humans have no power to influence their destiny and that circumstances and situations are the most crucial factors in determining one’s destiny. People have no choice but to choose someone under these circumstances, making their physical and mental efforts useless.
The Israelites chose Jephthah, the son of a concubine, to lead them in the battle against the children of Ammon. Bakili Muluzi, who was elected president of Malawi in 1994, was also forced by Kamuzu Banda’s autocratic government.
Adolf Hitler, who faced dire economic conditions after World War II, is also included in this category due to the limited choices the German people had. These examples demonstrate the importance of leadership in overcoming challenges.
After reviewing the previous analysis of how people become leaders based only on their own volition or as a result of events and circumstances (Fate), let’s examine more closely how Dr. Dalitso Kabambe, former Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) Governor is predestined to lead Malawi as its future president.
Despite all the false accusations and propaganda against him, Dr Kabambe’s name keeps soaring, especially now that the economy of Malawi is on its deathbed.
Malawi is facing unprecedented economic hardships, with many families struggling to afford basic commodities and services, leading to a state of destitute living conditions. The country’s currency is rendered useless, and those who were trusted to operate the country are in a state of confusion.
However, Dr Kabambe remains that man who has been tried and tested before and has the audacity to take over the mantle of leadership. He has worked in various departments, including Agriculture, Finance, Health, and Foreign Affairs, and has set out his plans to propel the nation through diversification of the economy.
As a well-seasoned economist with vast experience, he knows how to press the right buttons in the interest of Malawians and has worked in various ministries, such as Agriculture, Finance, Health, and Foreign Affairs.
Kabambe’s work ethic is top-notch, and he has proven to be reliable in curing rotten departments down the right path during his time in government. While the opposition Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is contemplating who to lead beyond party politics, Dr. Kabambe should be the name.
Malawians therefore must choose someone with an economic background in 2025 for a better Malawi, not pastors, lawyers, gender activists, and civil rights group leaders.
