When one thinks of leadership in its various definitions, it befits the vocal nature attached to its charges who continuously call for the betterment and development of the people under their care, and a demonstration which will definitely last the week is the sight of President Ndayishimiye of Burundi calling for more investors to come into Burundi and tap into the wealth of policies created to enable the ease of doing business in the country.
In Kenya for a state visit to commemorate the 58th Madaraka Day celebrations as a Guest of Honour, President Ndayishimiye took time out to call on Kenyan investors to key into present opportunities provided to invest in Burundi as the business climate created by the current administration under his leadership is friendly and laced with worth to enable the ease of doing business.
Not limited to urging investors to commit their resources to the development of Burundi, President Ndayishimiye entered into cooperative agreements with Kenya to bring about relevant development to the business sector of the country in bilateral ties while promoting East African business as the Chairperson of the East African Community. It is to this end that the quality of commendation to befit the status of a vocal leader should come from another leader like President Uhuru Kenyatta in his address to commemorate the Madaraka day when he applauded the efforts of President Ndayishimiye as evidence of great work towards bringing back peace and development in Burundi.
With a downturn in revenue growth and economic challenges threatening the globe in the face of the Covid19 pandemic, the remedy can be found in relevant investments being made into national assets and President Ndayishimiye has led the way for other African leaders to follow.
