North West politicians hailed over peaceful campaigns

North western commissioner of police Lackson Sakala says he is happy with the way politicians in the region are conducting their peaceful campaigns.

Mr Sakala said it was encouraging to note that all the political players in the province adhered to the set of rules regarding the zero tolerance to political violence.

He was impressed with the manner campaigns were being conducted and hoped for their continuation as the country moved towards the August 11 elections.

“We are happy that campaigns are going on smoothly. All the political parties are adhering to the set rules, so far so good,” said Mr Sakala.

He said that police where on high alert to ensure that this year’s elections were peaceful.

He said any perpetrators of violence would not be spared but brought to book regardless of the political affiliation.

“People are very peaceful and I will not condone any form of violence in the province,” he said.

He appealed to all players to continue campaigning peacefully.

And North Western Development Council of Elders has appealed to the people in the region to continue maintaining peaceful.

Organisation chairperson Lucas Chikoti told the Daily Nation that violence should not be tolerated because it could create enmity.

“Elections come and go, what happens after elections are gone? That is why we should maintain peace so that even after elections we continue smiling at each other,” he said.
