-Denounces Violence
In an effort to maintain peace and security especially ahead of much crucial October elections in the country, the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) has denounced violence with further warning to the public against inciting comments that might have the propensity to derail the transitioning process.

Speaking in an interview at the Ministry of Defense Tuesday April 4, 2017 in Monrovia, Minister Brownie Samukai warned that the military will not accept any inciting comments of violence as means of ensuring a peaceful election.

According to the Minister of Defense, of all the transitioning, this year is most critical and important; therefore, the result should not be disputed by human elements as “what happened in the process should not be undermined by enemies of doubt.”

Samukai lamented that though the military has no role to play in the elections process under the Defense Act, the ministry will not accept any inciteful comments that have the ability of undermining peace and stability of the country, adding that the force has different support and respond when the need arises.

“We have different support and respond when the need arises,” he further warned. Minister Samukai noted that the role of the army as defined in the Defense Act will not change in this elections period as the institution is going to promote a violence-free environment.

“We can express our disagreements or raise issues and allegations that come up, but you do not have the right to rise to violence. The military by law will provide support where require”, he further indicated.

Samukai narrated that when a person uses free speech to incite violence under the Liberian law, he or she is held accountable, something he stressed the institution will implement to the fullest.

“It is your right to say what you want to say, but the constitution also holds you liable for what you say. Expressing violence is different from inciting violence”, he stated.

Samukai stressed the need for Liberians to channel their disappointments by going to the polls to vote on October 10, 2017. “You may not like everybody, so now that you have the right you can vote out and vote in but not to engage in violence”, he cautioned.
