Ghanaian author and playwright, James Ebo Whyte has registered his disappointment in the weak leadership of politicians once they receive the mandate of the people to rule.
This is in reference to Ghanaian political parties allowing their foot soldiers go on various rampages without any ramifications or penalties for their actions.
Speaking on the Easter edition of Joy FM's Super Morning Show, he said it is a mark of weak leadership for politicians and their allies to do the wrong things in government and expect to be forgiven when they go into opposition.
"We do not have great leaders in this land who can hold their people in check" Mr Whyte pointed out.
According to Uncle Ebo, although politicians have a team backing them, the backroom staff should not be given the opportunity to assume violent roles because their party is in power.
Some supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have become notorious for vandalizing and property they believe should rightly belong to members of the Party and no one else.

Uncle Ebo stated however that these unlawful takeovers must stop because if the current government gives in to the demands of these foot soldiers, the situation will be worse if another government takes over.
"For me, it is short-sighted and foolish because even if you rule for 10, 12 or even 20 years, you will one day go away," he said.
He added, “A leader should be able to call his people to book and say ‘not on my watch, this thing won’t happen’ and not the other way around.”
