Political Party Youths on the Rampage!
There have been a lot of campaigns on ‘non-violence’ regarding the November 17th polls, however, the attitudinal and behavioral change agenda for every Sierra Leonean seems not to be bearing positive fruit as we are getting closer to D-Day.
Today it is clear that youths from different political parties are on the rampage, displaying their dissatisfaction over their party’s decisions on the issuing of party symbols to would-be-counselors and members of parliament.
It is no hidden secret that youths in the country have not adhered to the much trumpeted campaign on ‘violence free elections’ which seems to be going unheard as reports of violent incidents in Freetown and various parts of the provinces are on the increase.
Political infighting amongst youths in various parties and the apparent crisscrossing culture over symbols, especially to those who were issued, are a bad recipe for loyalty, and unhealthy political terms for a nation like ours. As such moves are considered by many as a recipe for animosity in the political parties’ circle that the end result is tantamount to violence amongst themselves.
Political canker worms are the architects of violence in every political party and though it is a right for people to vote for whomever they think fit for political office, it is a necessity and a duty to consider mama Salone as the paramount factor when it comes to elections.
The youths, who earlier promised this nation they would not let politicians use them for the wrong reasons, are seen perpetrating violence on their own, which clearly shows that the message of non-violence has not cut across the youths of this nation.
We are calling and appealing to every Sierra Leonean, especially the youths of political parties, to maintain a violence free campaign during the elections period, in or outside their party circles, as the electoral hammer hangs waiting for lawbreakers.
So be warned, abstain from violent activities and electoral fraud!
