Violent rhetoric must be condemned by all

I have watched with dismay leaders propagating possible violence come 2017. This violent rhetoric is evil and should be condemned by all people of goodwill.

We need leaders who will sow seeds of peace and who understand that national unity is the first step towards achieving our goals.

We must face our challenges as a nation and not as a divided people. It is only through the path of peace and national unity that we will manage to triumph over poverty, ignorance, disease and negative ethnicity.
