Acting PM welcomed by warriors at KG school
Acting Prime Minister Manasseh Maelanga has encouraged students at King George Sixth School to take up the challenge of becoming leaders when they are still young.
Speaking to students of the Central Malaita Students Association (CMSA) during their end of year function on Sunday, Mr Maelanga said leadership starts within your own homes and schools.
“If you cannot prove that you are a good leader in your own home or school then obviously you cannot be a good leader in your community or for your country,” he said.
Mr Maelanga made this encouragement as he witnessed the handing over of responsibilities by members of the CMSA.
“Be responsible and be role models. A true leader has a lot of respect for his people and he takes time to listen to his people. Therefore, as young leaders you must learn to look after your brothers and sisters in the CMSA,” he said.
The acting Prime Minister while wishing the students the best in their exams also encouraged them to pursue their dreams further.
“This is not the end of the road. You have a long road ahead of you and sitting your final exams doesn’t mean that you have achieved your future but it’s just the beginning for more challenges ahead,” he said.
