Post Election Violence Really Saddens the Policy Research Studies Centre!

By a press release (16/04/18)

The Centre for Research Documentation Policy Studies and Development of Law expresses deep sadness for the elections violence.

 

Thus causing the killing and severe wounding of fellow nationals in Kenema, on Thursday 5th April 2018. It was reported that several youth in the ruling Sierra Leone People's Party attires lit houses belonging to the main opposition All People's Congress members, destroy their goods and other properties and some were killed. Police officers were also out numbered, attacked, their weapons taken away from them and some were damaged. (Photo: Police Officer who lost his life post elections).

Such despicable behaviour is fast becoming a growing trend in the Kenema public space with threats of violence or actual violent actions towards politicians and supporters of the now main opposition party, activists and ordinary Sierra Leoneans who expressed their opinions concerning the state of Sierra Leone society and politics that is not in their favour. These heinous acts of political gangsterism are aimed at intimidating the democratic contestation of ideas and silencing dissenting opinions in Kenema.

This trend is worrying particularly with the looming victory of President Bio. Such unruly and criminal behaviour, if left unchecked will inevitably escalate to outbreaks of potential political violence.

We strongly condemn political violence as it prevents people from freely exercising their constitutional right. The loss of lives in political violence, as we experienced yesterday, is unacceptable and we ask that the government of President Bio ensure perpetrators face the appropriate legal actions.

We implore the police to exercise their duties of maintaining law and order in a professional way. On behalf of the Centre, for Research Documentation Policy Studies and Development of Law, we express our deepest condolences to the bereaved family.
