#141 leadership

Microsoft’s founder Bill Gates, at age 52, is moving away from the outfit he’d started to social enterprises (?) as he and his wife want the challenge to reducing poverty in practical ways in some parts of the world.

The difference between NGOs and one using one’s personal finances is ownership. I’m sure Bill & Miranda Gates will guard their interests with great care to best utilise and manage their resources wherever they anchor.

In contrast to one of the African national leader, Robert Mugabe where his knighthood was taken away at his old age for his inability to give up his position and to make way for a younger person to rule the country which already is in devastation and poverty. He must have built up Zimbabwe impressively for Britain to honour him the MBE.

I hope the world leaders will learn from this case in history — from good governance to folly and destruction.
