Quotes

"The transparency side of everything we are doing is the most important thing, otherwise our institutions will not get to where we want them to get to."
When asked if the current leadership should be changed or overhauled, the political science lecturer said: "Yes, why not? We need a leader. We are not talking about managers. We have had political managers in our country for a long time but we are talking about people who will be able to inspire all to achieve a broader vision."
3. Be genuine in your communication and don't hide your feelings. Example: "I’m not sure what to say, but I want you to know I care."
"It's difficult. It has been like this for the last few months" Aisha complains. "Customers are now buying less."
