The NGO Development Council appeals for the restoration of peace in the National Capital, Highlands and other concerned areas during this period. The NDC urges the government and authorities to play a proactive role in ensuring security of all its citizens and residents.
During the recent weeks, they have witnessed and received reports of a deteriorating security situation with grave injuries caused, and even deaths. Killings of innocent people and atrocities against women and children have been concerning and should be checked regardless of whether they are election related or not.
Communities have been displaced and are constantly living in fear, with businesses and markets also being looted and affected and several communities face an uncertain future.
NDC urges the government and authorities to put a stop to these incidents and apply the rule of law to ensure the safety of all citizens and residents, and preventing loss to lives and property. They also wish to encourage the government and authorities to work with other stakeholders to provide humanitarian support to the affected communities and make a coordinated effort to restore peace to fighting and tension zones in the country.
“We stand to support and help in any way we can.”
