A statement from Owhoko highlighted the long-term impact of vices on organizational progress.

“Like rats, their actions cause pain because they never add value to anything. Wherever rats are found, the material order is utterly threatened. They destroy by consuming all valuables in sight.

According to him, “Like rats, there are people in organizations whose only motive is to perpetuate a selfish agenda by methods that advance their interests, even if it is at the expense of the organization.

“They have a sting-proof conscience that is unresponsive to malevolence, consequent destruction, loss, and pain resulting from their actions.”
