CSOs launch ‘Let peace prevail’ campaign

Let peace prevail

With now days to the general elections, different Civil Society Organisations have jointly launched a “let peace prevail” campaign that appeals to the general public to avert election violence for a peaceful country. Speaking on behalf of other members, the Executive Director NGO forum Richard Ssewakiryanga says they have noted that there are prevailing situations where candidates use hate speech against one another, it might cause violence during or after elections.

Ssewakiryanga adds that it is very paramount at this time that the public is highly notified about the effects of violence during or after election hence their effort to preach for peace to Ugandans in this remaining period of time.

On the same note, the Executive Director Foundation for Human Rights Initiative Livingstone Stone Sewanyana appeals to the candidates to be tolerant of one another and embrace the spirit of accepting defeat and use of dialogue to solve grievances amicably.
