At this time most of the world leaders are more worried about prowling the country's funds and building empires for themselves. They don’t care about the poor people, they don’t think about their subject matter who voted them in. The majority of leaders only have their own best interests and that of their families of benefit. They also enjoy being highly treated as top first class citizens and they don’t joke with the luxuries their positions offer them.
An Uruguayan former president Jose Alberto 'Pepe' Mujica Cordano is a very respected man in Uruguay and also the overall the world. He was the former world's poorest president as he serves up his country between 2010 and 2015 as the fortieth president of Uruguay. Mujica was made different and unique when compared to the other world presidents that have served was his act of kindness. His strictness made people submit to him as the world's poorest president. He chooses to live on a farm despite having access to the presidential house. He determined to live in a simple house located in a rural area outside Montevideo.
His lifestyle is an interesting and attracting one as he prefers to live simply regardless of being paid an amount the same to twelve thousand US dollars per month. The fascinating part of this is that about ninety percent of his earning goes to the poor and small-scale entrepreneurs. After giving out ninety percent of his salary, Mujica is left with an amount that is equivalent to an average Uruguay's earning per month. In spite of his act of charity, he does not feel poor and enjoys his life on the farm.
The political point of views of Mujica is troubling considering the fact that he supports the same-sex marriage, abortion rights and the legalization of marijuana. Some people say he does not act like a president but he is no doubt someone the poor relates with.
Lastly, his leadership method is living by examples and reflects that clearly his ideological perspective. And also he does not see himself as someone who lacks the basic necessity of life as he embraces this lifestyle and living on a farm, his official car is a 1987 Volkswagen Beetle.
