NCD EXPRESSES DISSATISFACTION OVER THE KABALA INCIDENT

It has come to the attention of the Management of the National Commission for Democracy (NCD) that there was a spate of violence in Kabala, Koinadugu District on Tuesday, August 16, 2016 that resulted in the death of two people with several injured and several places vandalized and some burnt completely or partially.

In view of its mandate in raising the level of civic consciousness and disseminate messages of peace and national unity, it is with deep shock and dissatisfaction that the Management of NCD has received such news, a situation that is tantamount to undermining the fragile peace of the nation as chaos in one part of the Country amounts to chaos in the rest of the Country, thus condemning the acts of violence and the outcomes thereby.

NCD JOINS OTHER INSTITUTIONS TO CONDEMN POLITICAL INTOLERANCE AND VIOLENCE

NATIONAL COMMISSION FOR DEMOCRACY (NCD) – SIERRA LEONE
PRESS RELEASE
NCD JOINS OTHER INSTITUTIONS TO CONDEMN POLITICAL INTOLERANCE AND VIOLENCE


Following the death of a Sierra Leonean as the outcome of a fracas in the Eastern City of Kenema allegedly ensuing between opposing factions within the main opposition of the Sierra Leone Peoples Party (SLPP), the leadership of the National Commission for Democracy (NCD) is in no uncertain term perturbed by such dastardly act that is symptomatic of political intolerance that is manifesting in the form of violence that is gradually engulfing the body politic of our beloved motherland.

In view of this nightmarish situation in the politics and governance of this nation, the leadership of NCD is joining other governance institutions to condemn what is becoming a vogue in the operations of political parties in our nation as intolerance in the form of violence is becoming the norm. It should be observed that what is happening in this direction has the potential to wreck the nation’s fledgling democracy that needs concerted effort to build for the benefit of posterity.
