The Revolution Needs Inspirational Leadership

Osman Mirghani

Is insulting the national army a heroic action?

One of the biggest catastrophic of the Sudanese glorious revolution and is because it lacks a godfather being one person or a group of persons; because such inspirational leadership could direct the compass to what serves the interests of the nation.

But unfortunately, the Sudanese revolutionists in most times adapt chocking slogans afar from any sound judgment.

The spirits of similar African revolutions in other countries some leaders controlled the spirits of the ethical rhythm of the revolution such as Mahatma Ghani of India, Saad Zaghloul in Egypt, Nelson Mandela in South Africa.

Even in the USA, the first amendment of the constitution was the ethical controller of change which continued till it produces the greatest power in the globe.

In the first Sudanese uprising in October 1964, the leadership was extended to include great leaders such as Ismail Al-Azhari, Mohammed Ahmed Al-Mahjoub, so the literature of that revolution was sophisticated and competitive producing singers like Mohammed Al-Amin and Mohammed Wardi who translated the words of poets of Hashim Siddiq (The Epic) and (Green October) of Mohammed Al-Maki Ibrahim.

But unfortunately the current revolution (December revolution) and despite the sacrifices provided it is recognized that it doesn’t have inspirational leadership or literature and was dominated by meager wording amid exchanged insulations in the social media outlets without any ceiling to hate speech.

The youth chanted unconsciously against their national army and other regular forces without any respect thinking that it is a kind of braveness!

I was saddened when I saw one of the supposed to be one of the revolution’s icons addressing the Paris Conference disregarding the sacrifices of our national army in front of the leaders who attended the event, despite the attendance of the President of the Sovereign Council who were invited in that model event.

Those youth could be excused because they do not have enough experience and they did not find the inspirational leadership to design what we can call the national contact line.

However, such a trend might lead to disastrous consequences considering that the Sudanese army doesn’t belong to Al-Burhan or Al-Bashir or Nemieri or Abboud, but it is a national institution established more than a century ago during which it sacrificed thousands of its heroes to protect the homeland.

The mistakes of the youth are acceptable because as we said they lack maturity and experience. But what is annoying is the absence of the elder’s wisdom in designing the aspired change.

In short, our revolution needs an Inspirational Ethical Leader.
