'Malawi needs leaders who are responsible'

Written by  Charles Mphwere

Blantyre, January 11, 2017: Youth Initiate Movement (YIM) an interdenominational movement says the country needs leaders who are responsible for their citizens and their nation, if the county is to move forward and in the positive direction. 

YIM Operations Manager, Allan Kawala said this in an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana) on Wednesday when he was highlighting about the fourth coming Youth Global Leadership Summit (YGLS) whose goal is to ensure that emerging leaders are motivated and responsible for their nation.  

“When leaders understand how to influence, they guide people in making generation impacting decisions. As a nation, we need leaders that are energized ethically, socially responsible, emotionally intelligent and pro active,” he said.

Kawala said leaders in any community ought to be responsible, reliable and trustworthy.  

“Lack of responsible leaders give birth to chaos and disorder in the community because there is no one to influence change in the forward, up wards and positive direction,” the Operations Manager pointed out.

“Irresponsible leaders kill the dreams of the nation, community or family,” he added.

Kawala explained that the summit which is an interdenominational initiative, would equip leaders from all walks of life with effective Christian principles which are universally applicable.

“It’s an exceptional video based conference with live facilitation. It will feature Bishop TD Jakes, Pastor Bill Hybels, Sherrly Sandberg and Tyler Perry.

“Actually the summit will be in Chicago USA and will be shown to delegates at the YGLS in Malawi,” he said.

Global Leadership Summit was founded by Pastor Bill Hybels of Willow Creek USA and is telecasted in numerous locations all over the world with an aim of cultivating mind set leaders or those aspiring to lead.

The Global Leadership Summit (GLS) scheduled for January 26 to January 27, 2018 at the International Christian Assembly (ICA) auditorium in Lilongwe will require delegates to pay K1,000 as admission fee.

YIM is an interdenominational movement founded on the principle of cultivating mind set through the gospel of Jesus Christ and was first launched in Blantyre in 2013, and later in Lilongwe in 2015.
