Reflections on leadership

On 4 December 2016, Kgwebong Consulting had the pleasure of hosting Mr. Jaspal Dhillon, first secretary, Political of the Republic of Singapore at the Rasooli Sufi Centre in Centurion. The purpose of the event was to reflect on the leadership of the late former Prime Minister of Singapore, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.

The event was opened in African style with a drumming performance from the talented Mr. Joe'man Kgomo. The founder of Kgwebong Consulting, Mr. Sello Motsei outlined the purpose of the day. In his speech he stressed the importance of the individual citizens' role in politics. Mr. Motsei encouraged the audience to get involved in politics, just like the late Prime Minister, not for the sake of personal enrichment, but for contributing to the livelihood of the communities.

In his reflections on the leadership of the late former Prime Minister, Mr. Jaspal Dhillon indicated that Singapore was able to achieve its success because their policies were based on pragmatism. In addition, they followed the 6 principles namely; 1) meritocracy; 2) religious and racial harmony; 3) clean government; 4) rule of law; 5) inclusive growth; and 6) care for the environment.

As a sign of appreciation for his time and knowledge, Mr. Sello Motsei and the Rasooli Centre gave Mr. Jaspal Dhillon books by South African authors Mphutlane wa Bofelo, Mmatshilo Motsei and Shaykh Fadhlalla Haeri. Mr. Flex Percy Maimela, an artist from Mabopane who creates beautiful art with salt, was also there to draw a picture of the late former Minister, Mr. Lee Kuan Yew.
