Studies have revealed that proper leadership is acquired through education. Some studies argue that a true leader is born with these qualities. However, nowadays, money talks and can make one a leader even though he doesn't have the qualities to be one. The majority of wealthy families pass on leadership to their children through death, inheritance, or when they reach a certain age.
of self-established companies are run by members of families. Speaking of leadership and wealth, three South African premier soccer league teams are run by the children of the owners of the clubs. Namely, Mamelodi Sundowns is run by the elder son of the self-proclaimed billionaire, Patrice Motsepe. whereas Royal AM is run by Andile Mpisane, the only child of businesswoman Shauwn Mkhize, popularly known as "Mamkhize". The last one is Stellenbosch, which is run by Anton Rupert, the only son of the billionaire Johann Rupert.
The three sons' leadership was transferred to them by their parents. Andile Mpisane made headlines 3 days ago after the chairman was seen in a stadium handing out bonus incentives in cash to the players after they successfully won against Maritzburg United. However, the actions of the Royal AM chairman did not impress the majority of South Africans and they have questioned his leadership skills. Others have commented that with money, anything is possible. Even a young man who does not know about running a team is a chairman.
On the other hand, people have been seen applauding Thlopie Motsepe for being a good leader who is not into sports for show and glamour. Many people are very impressed with his leadership style, and I have commented that he reciprocated everything from his father, Patrice Motsepe. Thlopie is hardly seen going up and down during the game.
Which one is your favorite between Thlopie Motsepe and Andile Mpisane? Drop your comments below.
