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.— Prof Theo Veldsman, University of Johannesburg

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