As an African (and Kenyan), albeit a white one, Leakey understands the "African mind". Africans need strong and inspired leadership, not the ruthless tyrannies they have known under various dictators - Mobutu, Bokassa, Amin, Moi.
Dr Leakey is headstrong, decisive and purposeful. His iron will, personal authority and moral commitment will command and inspire respect while instilling discipline and a work ethic in a society that has for the past 15 years been led by an increasingly erratic, confused and indecisive despot. Dr Leakey's party, Safina, is a clarion call for deliverance from the rising tidal waves of corruption, exploitation and bloodshed that Moism has bestowed on an erstwhile promised land.
