Opposition leader Advocate Nelson Chamisa has raised concerns over what he perceives as a significant deficiency in the country’s leadership.

In a poignant statement made on Wednesday, Advocate Chamisa addressed what he described as a concerning trend in leadership roles within Zimbabwe, likening it to a form of societal malnutrition, specifically referring to kwashiorkor, a severe form of malnutrition affecting children.

Advocate Chamisa declared :
“The Leader is a Servant, Not a Master…”

Advocate Chamisa’s statement encapsulates a powerful message about the fundamental nature of leadership. He emphasizes the principle that leadership is fundamentally about service and enabling others. “To lead is to serve. To serve is to enable. A leader is a servant. A servant is an enabler,” he expressed.

Leadership, in his view, should not be about wielding power for personal gain or control, but rather about empowering and facilitating progress within the community. He highlights the various positions of authority, including the presidency, ministerial roles, parliamentary positions, and civil service, as opportunities for individuals to make a positive impact by enabling those they serve.

“Great leaders enable those whom they serve,” Chamisa emphasized, underlining the importance of leaders fostering an environment conducive to growth and development for all.

Advocate Chamisa’s words echo a sentiment that transcends political boundaries and speaks to a universal ideal of leadership.

Regardless of political affiliation or ideology, the concept of servant leadership resonates as a timeless principle that guides effective governance and societal progress.

In calling for a paradigm shift towards servant leadership, Advocate Chamisa issues a challenge to those in positions of power to reassess their roles and responsibilities.

He emphasizes that true leadership lies not in the accumulation of authority, but in the ability to uplift and empower others.

As Zimbabwe continues to navigate its path forward, Advocate Chamisa’s message serves as a reminder of the transformative potential of leadership rooted in service and empathy.

It underscores the need for leaders to prioritize the well-being and advancement of their constituents above all else, fostering a culture of inclusivity and collective prosperity.

In the face of ongoing challenges, Advocate Chamisa’s call for servant leadership offers a beacon of hope and a blueprint for building a brighter future for Zimbabwe and its people.

“When one serves as President, Minister, Member of Parliament, councillor, civil servant or in any public office, one must enable not disable.”

“Great leaders enable those whom they serve. #LeadersServe #ForEveryone.”
