It is sad that some people have started fighting and stoning each other as the campaign for the General Elections draw to a close. The recent developments in Thyolo, Lilongwe and Mangochi will have a bad effect on the outcome of the elections.

I believe that our lives are more important than everything else so why should we put them at risk for the mere fact that we are supporting different candidates. There is no Presidential or Parliamentary candidate who is worthy dying or even getting scratched for. Its all useless to be fighting for these politicians who are busy enriching themselves.

In fact we will have another vote in five years time. Those who will lose this time can try the next time. I also understand that they are laid down procedures to complain if you are not satisfied with the outcome of the results. Please stop this unruly behavior lets just concentrate on campaign the rest of the days without violence.

We cannot afford to be losing lives every time we have General Elections. In 2004 several lives were lost because of the violence that erupted a few days after the elections. Please spare us this time around we all want to be part of the next government.

I urge all the leaders to condemn this behavior before it gets off hand. We should not see what happened in Kenya or Zimbabwe. Malawi have always been a peaceful nation and lets maintain that image. Please my fellow Malawians lets love our country and stop this violence immediately. GOD BLESS MALAWI AND KEEP IT A LAND OF PEACE !!!!
