Justice is the administration of the law and not mere condemnations

Condemnation of killings, lootings, abductions, rape, breeding fear is not what the country needs to hear right now.

It is a few months left to the end of the Transitional Period, but the common man is still left wondering how next year’s anticipated elections will happen given new violent incidences involving fresh clashes –new wounds to the already old ones which were not given time to heal first.

For believers in the Holy Bible, it is stated that there is a time for everything in this world; “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to hate and a time to love, a time for war and a time for peace”.

Given our context, you will agree that the country has lived in its time to tear down, weep, mourn, hate and war and we are all looking forward to or even better – transitioning into a time to build, laugh, dance, love and peace. We remain hopeful and looking to the better days that are coming to us soon.

But for this remaining period, let the crimes being done against humanity be prosecuted, bringing the criminals to book and giving justice to the victims, survivors because mere condemnations do not do anything but give short lived comments.
