“Internal Peace and Security is Worrisome” -Charles Lahai says

The Director of African Peace Alliance Consortium, Mr Charles Lahai says internal peace and security of Sierra Leone is worrisome.
Mr Lahai urged government to take urgent actions to keep the peace of the state.
“If government fails to take measures, people think that government is not control,” he says.
The PASSET Director also reminded government that the people of Sierra Leone voted the government to protect their lives and property.
“If the situation continues to 2023, the peace of the country will not be easy for the country,” he stressed.
He further warns President Julius Maada Bio to strengthen his team, noting that sacking will not solve the problem of insecurity in Sierra Leone.
“The government needs to objectively investigate the issue and address the findings and recommendations,” he urged.
He also reminded the government about the lawlessness and violence that is taking root in the country.
Mr Lahai made reference to the attempted jail break at the Pa Demba Road Central Correctional facility and the riots in Lunsar and Tombo in Portloko and Western Area Rural district.
“The Paramount Chief’s house, the police station and the police barracks in Lunsar were burnt down owing to the violence,” Lahai said.
Mr Lahai also did not lose sight of the burning down of a hospital, police station and the loss of lives in the riots in Tombo town.
The PASSET Director also blame the use of social media to spread misinformation which, he said was a cause for violence in the country.

He called on government to investigate the incidents of violence objectively.
Mr Lahai reminds government that one of the indicators of peace is for the people to wake up in the morning and go about their normal business.
“Election does not stop at the ballot box, noting that those political parties whose candidates win should also come together and help government in continue constructive consultation engagement,” Mr Lahai urged.
