Political Leaders Urged To Prioritise Welfare Of Citizens

Visiting Kenyan lawyer and staunch pan-Africanist Professor Patrick Loch Otieno Lumumba has urged political leaders to prioritise the welfare of their citizens through good governance.

Professor Lumumba said this when he gave a inspirational speech during the Economic Renaissance Summit held in Harare today.

Professor Lumumba, who was the guest speaker at the summit was very candid about the need for African leaders not to be self serving but to prioritise the lives of those they lead.

He reflected on how African countries need to utilise their natural resources wisely for their economic emancipation.

“The continent remains in the shackles of poverty whilst it is endowed with many natural resources,” he said.

Professor Lumumba added that the future of Africa lies in Africans and gave examples of Rwanda and Mauritius where their journey to economic prosperity is being achieved through Afro-centric ideas of their own people.
