More leaders, stakeholders calls for dialogue to calm political tension

South Nyanza Sugar Company Chairman Ambrose Weda has called for Jubilee and Nasa leaders to embrace dialogue in a bid solve the ongoing political stalemate holding the country.

Weda observed that through dialogue, peace and unity would prevail among the various interest groups as well as communities living in the country.

The two leaders must meet and have talks. That is the only way we shall unlock the stalemate holding the country on the precipice of explosion due to the current political scenario, he said.

The Chairman added that police officers should not brutalize protesters, adding that the law provides that when one breaks the law, they should be apprehended and taken to court humanly.

The laws in our good Constitution does not allow the police to use the guns and other firearms to kill innocent protestors in the ongoing political stalemate in the country but permits them to apprehend, he added.

He made the remarks Sunday, when he officially closed the Migori Agricultural Show at the Lichota ground.

His sentiments were echoed by the Migori Senator Ben Oluoch Okello who stressed the importance tolerance and understanding amongst all communities in the country regardless of their political persuasions.
