It is no longer news that our dear nation is currently being engulfed by a crisis. The events of the past few days are highly disheartening and indeed depressing. It is to this end that I, on behalf of the NEC, wish to express my profound sympathy to members, staff and the general public who have been directly or indirectly affected by the ongoing unrest. Peaceful protests are a constitutional right of the citizens. We denounce and condemn the killing of innocent protesters demanding for their rights within constitutional limits.
Let me also use this opportunity to appeal for calm even as we earnestly pray that the Almighty God intervenes in this trying period. As we monitor the situation of things, we urge all our members and staff to please stay safe and respect government imposed curfews where put in place.
Our deepest commiserations go to the victims and innocent protesters that have lost their lives, properties or become injured in these trying moments.
