CEPO appreciates the recent proactiveness of the national parliament on matters of insecurity and violation of human rights across the country. It essential that law makers do their level best for holding the executive accountable on matters of best interest of the citizens
Mr Edmund Yakani, Executive Director of Cepo says most of the ongoing deadly insecurity are politically motivated and the political elites at community, state and national levels.
Our worry is with the looming national general elections if the holding have not improved their response to insecurity, it is likely that the scale of communal violence may increase to worse. Since the break out of the national civil war from 2013 till today the inter-communal and intra-communal deadly violence is claiming big number of innocent civilians lives and properties
Political leadership is required to mitigate these on these ongoing violence and human rights violations due to the deadly communal violence across the country. Due to the limits in the political leadership willingness in handling the deadly communal violence in concrete manner has made some politicians to be profiteers of the deadly communal violence. Mr Yakani stressed
Finally, CEPO is urging the parliament to serious handle the executive leaders on the matters of concrete solutions to the on going deadly communal violence. Among the concrete options are holding politicians who are using violence as step to power accountable
