We need to be better informed beyond the reported cases.
” This is basically a humanitarian endeavour and is in line with our founding vision, which will also help us to meet eye witnesses and hear from them what they saw and experienced and meet with available stakeholders to learn from them and take direct information.
” We would also meet government functionaries, hear and take their proposed action plan and timeframe for delivery and consequently seek approval from the executive to put action on this initiative for the good of all.”
The statement also read in parts ” we are persuaded to make this statement as a public spirited organization to call for an end to further destructive actions by the youths.
” We urgently want them to embrace peace towards a true healing of the wounds and national reconciliation.
” As a non-governmental organization (NGO), the African Children Talent Discovery Foundation (ACTDF) is very much concerned about the spate and extent of the recent destructions with threats to national peace, cohesion and stability
