      Political violence in Sierra Leone is escalating. This is as a result
      of low political education in the country. The people are not
      throughly educated about the ongoing political process. Politicians
      are using it as a yard stick to manipulate voters to vote infavour of
      their own selfish interest, since the illiteracy rate is high in that
      country.

      The media and politicians have failed to educated the people in
      Sierra Leone that, according to the constitutional provision been set
      up a party should have 55% before been declare the winner in
      election. If parties failed to meet with that requirement their will
      be a Run OFF election. But they have failed to do so, and the voters
      in Sierra Leone, especially that of the APC, you have won the
      parliamentary election with 44.3% whiles the SLPP with 38.3%, saying
      that there should be no run off, they have already won. this is as a
      result of low political education in the country. since no party
      secure the percentage of vote, that of the 55%.

      In other to calm the ongoing situation, I am calling upon the media
      and journalist in Sierra Leone to embark on educating the people,
      that the run off is as a result of the constitutional provision that
      a party should have 55% before been declare the winner. The
      constitution should not be violated, as I am reading articles been
      writing by elderly politicians that, there is no need for run off.

      I am calling upon those politicians indoctrinating their people that
      there is no need for run off, to stop this bad politics to project
      there own interest. This will not augur well for the people of Sierra
      Leone, but help fueling conflict that will led to lose of lives of
      individuals in Sierra leone.

      Politics should be fair play, because at the end all political
      parties in the country are fighting for the same objective towards
      the development of the country.To Sierra Leoneans is high time you
      see yourself as "one people one country" dont allowed this
      politicians to fool you. Interms of trouble they will live you and go
      to western countries since they have the opportunity.
