MDC-T vice-president Nelson Chamisa has described President Robert Mugabe as an inept leader for failing to groom a successor in his 37-year rule, saying good leadership is able to nurture a successor.

In an interview yesterday, Chamisa said all that Mugabe had exhibited were qualities of a bad leader.

"Good leadership is when you are able to lead and leave. A good leader must also be worried about the happiness of the citizens. A good leader must unite rather than divide," he said.

"It should worry a good leader that we have so many bad roads that you have people literally dying every week on account of accidents because of dilapidated roads.

"A good leader must be worried that pensioners are spending time in queues, queuing for $50 pension entitlements and a good leader must worry that factories are closing every day."

Last week, Chamisa told Ruvheneko Parirenyatwa on her Facebook livestreaming platform that the failure by Mugabe to groom a successor was a sign of poor leadership.

"You cannot be the only tower light in the street," he said in reference to Mugabe's desire to be viewed as the only capable leader.
