Do our leaders have the capacity to move us forward?

Leadership crisis are words being used for frequently as South Africans grow frustrated with a stagnant economy and crippling corruption.

702/Cape Talk's Eusebius McKaiser (standing in for Redi Tlhabi) spoke to University of Johannesburg's Professor Theo Veldsman to get more insight.

He said that any community without capable leaders suffers due to a lack of accountability mechanisms and no vision.

We may see an implosion where we see a leaderless revolution coming of which the #FeesMustFall is a prime example.

Professor Veldsman said the following factors aggravate frustrations with leadership in business and in government:

  • unable leadership
  • unintelligent leadership
  • immature leadership
  • immoral leadership
  • destructive/toxic leadership
