When we vote for our political leaders to represent us in the national government,it shows that we trust them to deliver services on our behalf since we know that they can perform as per our expectations.The same applies to the those others who under the president’s mandate are appointed to head the public institutions that we have in the country.
So them being up there,they should be our good ambassadors and carry out their obligations in a responsible manner.This means that they should not use their positions as a way of intimidation to get things done in their favor.They should respect everyone else including their juniors and should be ready to face consequences for any wrong doing.
But this is not always the case,like in this incident where a senior person in the judiciary harassed a junior staff in the shopping mall.The person in question felt that there was no need of undergoing a security check because of being in a senior position in the judiciary.There ensued confrontation with the judicial official threatening the unarmed security officer with a gun.
This caused a public outrage and a suspension tribunal was formed to look into the erratic behavior and the official was dismissed on grounds of misconduct since such actions went against the ethics of the judicial profession.The official eventually lost the job after investigations revealed the turn of events of the ugly incident and so the final verdict was that the official had to resign.
So had the official behaved responsibly and allow the routine security check,this would not have attracted such an ugly scenario that led to the loss of a job.Being humble is a trait that is worth possessing to avoid one finding himself/herself on the receiving end due to misconduct.Such public officers should know that they ought to be a good example in their way of conduct.
