Dear comrades, I would take this chance to first and foremost thank our Almighty God for the far that he has brought us. I would also like to thank you all for the support that you gave me during the political period as you demonstrated your rights in a mature and democratic manner to elect us as your leaders. One of the greatest things about leadership is that we all bring something different to the table. I do believe that some people are born leaders and learn throughout life to become better leaders. One of the best lessons I have learned is that it is not about me. When I made the transition from valuing myself to valuing my people, I was transformed as a leader. Everyone Communicates, Few Connect. When we learn to turn our focus from ourselves to others, the whole world opens up to us. When you understand this and take the focus away from you, it will change who you are as a leader. Leadership is both a gift and a privilege. You can erode the cohesion of your team if you fail to value them. Everyone on the team deserves to be valued. Each one of them performs an essential part to keep the engine of your company running. When you can put your people’s needs and interests before your own, you will be a more successful leader.
To my fellow comrades, I would like to urge you that Perfection is an impossible standard. But in a results-driven world, it seems like we’re constantly reminded of how coveted perfection still is. Rather than striving to get everything just right, strive to excel in your own way. Start by chasing personal greatness, the kind of excellence that celebrates your progress. And take comfort in the fact that no matter where you are in life, it’s always up for grabs.
In my tenure of power, I will: Act in good conscience, enable informed decision-making by my fellow comrades, Act so as to merit the trust and respect of the KIBU family and Respect the intrinsic dignity of all.
