Janet Mumo Maundu
Please describe your vision of a world that works for everyone.
Positive leadership in all nations through serving people in three dimensions, leaders as a servant, leaders as shepherd and leaders as stewards, this will bring harmony and understanding in our world.
What do you see as the most pressing problems facing the world today?
Lack of effective leadership, the challenge the world is facing is lacking leaders who can lead and be productive, in there leadership without being egocentric and serve the nation. Leadership being the foundation of development of the nation people misuse power like the autocratic leaders who dictates when leading or serving the nation without using dialogue or in a democratic leadership, I could like to change leaders to be democratic leaders in our nation other than autocratic and authoritative leaders.
How do you feel these problems could best be solved?
Through dialogue and being democratic leaders, and also taking other people’s interest first, through also capacity mobilization, sensitization, lobbying and campaign to our society to elect leaders who have values and vision that can be role modeled by the youths, and small children since leadership starts from home. (Charity begins at home) Especially here in Kenya we should be holding chief’s meetings (Baraza’s) in order to enlighten the community and create awareness to the community about leadership and also identify the qualities of a good leader like obedience, kind, caring non judgmental, empathetic other than being sympathetic.
