Oppah Muchinguri told delegates at an induction workshop for Jomic’s liason committees that many entrusted with leadership roles failed to promote peace and harmony in their communities due to lack of training on good leadership.
“The reason why people have defeatist attitudes which make them resort to the use of anything else but not the brain is that our parties fail to invest in leadership training,” Muchinguri said.
“We need leaders who forge team spirit and not favour members of their particular party, accommodative leaders who take every member of their community on board in everything they do.
“We need leaders who compromise and appreciate that violence does not work. Leaders who acknowledge that we need both MDC and Zanu PF so that we have more competing ideas, so that we choose the best,” she said.
