Poverty has been attributed to the resistance by leaders to embrace change of attitude.
Jubilee Centre Executive Director Laurence Temfwe expressed concern at the effects of poverty on leadership which he described as devastating.
“the reason we have poverty is because leaders are not changing, we have been having leaders at many levels who express despair over the magnitude of poverty.
Rev Temfwe added that leaders must see the need to change like Moses who had to deal with 40 years of poverty in his mind before God would entrust him to lead people with poverty and oppression mentality. He was speaking at the CCZ 30th General conference, in Kitwe.
